MS Nordstjernen is named after the North Star, Polar Star or Stella Polaris, famous for helping ships to navigate north for centuries, even back to the age of the Vikings. The ship was built for the Coastal Voyage fleet in 1956 and extensively modernised in 2000 for exclusive Arctic sailing. She still retains the aura of an old Atlantic ship and comes equipped with a dining room and bar, a café, a panorama lounge and a library. Inside you’ll find cosy inside and outside cabins, the majority of which have upper and lower berths. And all rooms and deck surfaces have that old, beautiful wood, which creates an extraordinary atmosphere. MS Nordstjernen still has all of her original art on board.
