MS Nordkapp was refurbished in 2016 and now features a modern,
Arctic-inspired interior. On board are three different restaurants,
a Multe bakery and ice cream bar, a sauna and fitness room. Out on
deck you can enjoy the view from one of our two hot tubs. We also
have a cosy bar at the front of the ship where you can enjoy a nice
traditional drink. The ship additionally has a large compass area
with reception, a tour guide, conference room and shop.
MS Nordkapp was christened by Norway´s Queen Sonja in 1996 and her
maiden voyage was to the Shetland Islands. The ship started sailing
the Norwegian coast in April 1996. She has also sailed in
Antarctica. Since 2007, the vessel has been part of Hurtigruten´s
fleet of ships dedicated to sailing the Norwegian coastline.
On-board Expedition team
MS Nordkapp has her own on-board Expedition Team and serves as a
university at sea. Interesting lectures, presentations and
activities inside as well as out on the sun deck of the ship make
this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the
season and the waters we sail in. The Expedition Team hosts a
lecture and presentation programme and evening gatherings daily.
Out on deck you may participate in live points of interest to learn
more about the nature, culture and other phenomena we encounter
along the coast. In addition, the Expedition Team will introduce
you to the uniquely Norwegian notion of `friluftsliv´, and
encourage you take part in `friluftsliv´ hikes and activities
during the journey.
The dedicated Expedition Team has one mission: to enhance your
experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife,
and culture you encounter during the voyage. Read more about our
