Life on board MS Trollfjord
From brand-new décor to excellent flavors during our live cooking events, everything aboard MS Trollfjord is designed to elevate and enrich your journey.
A magical cruise deserves a magical onboard experience. Whether you’re sailing on The Svalbard Express or The North Cape Express, beneath the Midnight Sun or the Northern Lights, on MS Trollfjord, you’ll find everything you need to deepen your enjoyment and understanding of the adventures that lie ahead.
MS Trollfjord, newly renovated from bow to stern in 2023, harks back to a romantic golden age of travel. The attention to detail is extraordinary. Admire the special uniforms worn by the crew, thoughtfully designed restaurants, and brand-new areas such as the historic food center.
With comprehensive lecture and activity programs, outstanding facilities, regular cruise recaps, and an extravagant farewell dinner, our enhanced cruise ship entertainment means there’s never a dull moment on The Svalbard Express and The North Cape Express.
The entertainment on the ship has a different theme every day, depending on the destination ahead.
For example, the theme on The Svalbard Express as you approach Tromsø and Senja is ‘Seaweed and the Working Ship’. Sample ‘blue food’, learn about Hurtigruten’s unique cargo story, or meet some of our trusted fish suppliers.
On The North Cape Express around Kristiansund and Farsund, dive into lectures about Norway’s maritime history as we approach the country’s southernmost cape and its oldest lighthouse.

If you prefer to simply watch the astounding scenery roll by, that’s fine too. Relax in the sauna or take a seat with a glass of Hurtigruten’s exclusive aquavit next to the floor-to-ceiling windows in the bar.
Your Coastal Experience Team
The four members (plus an enthusiastic trainee) of the Coastal Experience Team play an important role in your cruise entertainment, both on board and on shore. We selected these members for MS Trollfjord because they’re experienced leaders who are experts in their field, and they know how to tell a great story.
The Coastal Experience Team is here to help you make the most of the full activity program, from morning stretching to movie nights. Team members run the lectures, workshops, and onshore activities. Ask them anything about the wildlife, ports, points of interest, and heritage you might encounter throughout your cruise. They can also help you find and book your perfect excursion.
Your culinary experience
On The Svalbard Express and The North Cape Express, your food and drink experience goes well beyond the restaurants. The flavor innovations and producers of the Norwegian coast play an integral role in immersing you in your astounding surroundings.
Cooking classes and tastings are at the heart of the daily program. Sip Norwegian wine at tastings led by a sommelier. Watch live shows about anything from caviar to ice cream. Learn about traditional food preservation techniques. Best of all, your hands-on experience doesn’t end when you take off your apron. The gravlax you just learned how to make might be your appetizer when you sit down to dinner later!
