MS Nordstjernen is named after the North Star or Stella Polaris, famous for helping seafarers find their way back home and the Vikings to navigate the north. Built in 1956, MS Nordstjernen was extensively modernized in 2000 and 2013 for exclusive Arctic sailing. Today, the ship sails the waters around Svalbard, showcasing the wonders of this magical archipelago to its adventurous guests.

A classic experience

Despite modernization, MS Nordstjernen still retains the aura of an old Atlantic ship, restored to its former splendor with new brass, classic wooden interiors, and all of its original art.

Inside, you’ll find a dining room and bar, a café, a panorama lounge, and a library. Much of the outside deck is covered, meaning that you can get up close with the untouched nature of this Arctic wilderness even if it rains.

Ms Nordstjernen is equipped with both interior and exterior cabins, the majority of which have upper and lower berths and some of which have en suites. Across all rooms and deck surfaces, you'll find that old, beautiful wood.
