MS Nordnorge is named after ‘northern Norway’, which consists of the two northernmost counties Nordland and Troms & Finnmark. The ship is particularly famous for Norwegians who may recognise it from a TV show in 2011 when its voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes was broadcast live for 134 hours, non-stop. The show entered the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest uninterrupted live television documentary.
