MS Polarlys

Like her sister ships dedicated to sailing Norway’s coast, MS Polarlys features an Arctic inspired interior and boasts outdoor observation decks and hot tubs to take in the view. Polarlys is Norwegian for ‘polar light’, referring to the natural phenomenon that you may be lucky enough to sight on winter departures. Sailing year round, there is always something incredible to experience aboard MS Polarlys.
