MS Midnatsol took her maiden voyage along the Norwegian coast in April 2003 and has become a favorite. Beginning in 2016, she'll spend part of the year joining the MS Fram in sailing the polar regions of Antarctica as well as the Chilean Fjords.

The name Midnatsol (Midnight Sun) is something to live up to, and this ship is dedicated to the Norwegian summer. The interior’s bright, colorful décor is inspired by the warm sunny climate, a motif also reflected in the many pieces of Norwegian modern art on display. What characterizes MS Midnatsol is the large, two-story panorama lounge above the bow and the large glass expanses providing extraordinary views. The sights can also be enjoyed from the top deck bar, Jacuzzi and sun deck.
