About MS Spitsbergen
MS Spitsbergen is named after the crown jewel of Arctic Norway – the Spitsbergen archipelago. Hurtigruten has a long history of traveling to Spitsbergen, beginning in 1896 with the "Sports Route".
After complete reconstruction, MS Spitsbergen rejoined the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016. The ship features high technical standards as well as comfortable, modern public areas and cabins. The vessel´s fresh Scandinavian design reflects a color palette derived from the sea. She is modern and environmentally progressive, and we plan further improvements that will reduce emissions and fuel consumption even more. The new ship's maneuverability and optimal size make her quite suitable for exploring polar waters.
MS Spitsbergen has its own onboard Expedition Team and serves as a university at sea. Interesting lectures inside the ship as well as out on the sun deck make this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the season and the waters we sail in. The Expedition Team hosts a lecture program and evening gatherings daily. Out on deck you can 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" (outdoor life), and encourage you take part in "friluftsliv" hikes and activities during the journey.
Our dedicated Expedition Teams 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. Ship facilities
