With only 180 berths and a maximum capacity 320 guests, MS Spitsbergen’s maneuverability and size makes her exceptionally suitable for exploring the coast of Norway and bringing Hurtigruten’s guests even closer to nature. She is named after the Arctic crown of Norway – the archipelago of Spitsbergen. Hurtigruten has a long history of traveling to Spitsbergen, dating back to 1896 with its ‘Sports Route’. After a complete reconstruction, MS Spitsbergen will feature elegant, modern, comfortable public areas and cabins and the decor will reflect the color palette of the sea. The ship is environmentally-friendly and we will continue to make improvements to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. She will also be equipped and adapted for future sailings in polar waters.
