MS Midnatsol has a strong environmental profile and modern design. The interior’s bright, colorful décor is inspired by Norway´s sunny warm days of summer, a motif reflected in many of the pieces of Norwegian modern art on board. The ship is also a TV star, having been featured in the award-winning Norwegian television documentary, “Hurtigruten 365.” The vessel´s sun deck and hot tub are on deck 9. Key features on MS Midnatsol include the large, two-story panorama lounge over the bow, with wall-to-wall windows that bathe the room in natural light and provide extraordinary views.
MS Midnatsol is an ice class 1X ship, equipped with advanced technology that makes her exceptionally well suited for expedition cruises in Antarctica. The ship started taking explorers on adventures to Patagonia and Antarctica in 2016.
Interesting lectures, presentations and activities inside the ship as well as out on the sun deck make this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the season and waters we sail in. The Expedition Team hosts a lecture and presentations program 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 encourages you take part in various “friluftsliv” hikes and activities during the cruise.
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 Expedition Teams here.
