Hurtigruten

MS Nordlys

Nordlys is Norwegian for ‘Northern Lights’, and the namesake ship reflects this phenomenon. Nuances can be found in the décor and aesthetic, giving guests a hint of this natural wonder even when travelling outside of peak viewing season. A 2019 refurbishment saw all cabins upgraded, along with facility revamps and the addition of two lecture halls and an Activity Centre to enhance your journey.
