Meet the Fleet: MS Maud

The original “Maud” got her name from the first Queen of modern-day Norway. She also had her namesake in Hurtigruten’s 1925 flagship DS Dronning Maud (“DS Queen Maud”).

MS Maud is well-suited for expedition cruising, with her bright interiors appointed in a classic Art Deco style. Like all Hurtigruten Expeditions ships, MS Maud is an environmentally progressive vessel, but there are plans to keep making improvements in an effort to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
