MS Maud

MS Maud, the current MS Midnatsol, is named after one of the most famous polar vessels of all time, Roald Amundsens “Maud” from 1917. 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”). The interior of the ship features natural Scandinavian materials like granite, oak, birch and wool, to create a relaxed and stylish atmosphere. On deck 5, you can visit our Science Center, which is packed with state-of-the-art technology and interactive learning tools. On deck 9, you can enjoy the spectacular views from the Observation deck, workout in the outdoor gym and soak in one of the hot tubs. And there´s no better way to enjoy the view than with a refreshment in the Panorama lounge.
