MS Polarlys

Offering comfortable expedition cruising, MS Polarlys is decorated in a contemporary style with modern artworks and mahogany wood panelling creating a charming atmosphere. Named for the arctic lights, she is ideal for relaxing and soaking in the majestic views of the passing scenery.

On-board there’s a small fitness room and pool when you want to get active, while the bars and lounges are perfect when you want to share drinks and stories with like-minded travellers. There’s a main restaurant serving local fare in an informal setting, and a 24-hour café for snacks and lighter bites as you need them.

The main dining room on-board MS Polarys is an exciting affair. Torget offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, with inspiration from local cuisine included on the menus. You can also visit Kysten for Arctic fine-dining or experience bistro-style cuisine in Brygga. Why not enjoy sweet treats in Multe, where ice cream and baked goods are served.

activities 1


The expedition team on-board MS Polarys are one of the ship’s main attractions, with lectures, presentations and activities available for you to enjoy. Out on deck, you can even participate in learning more about the nature, culture and other phenomena we encounter along the coast. For active cruisers, spend some time in the fitness centre where there is state-of-the-art equipment, or take some time to relax in the sauna.

Hurtigruten does not allow children under five to travel to Antarctica, with no other age restrictions elsewhere. MS Polarys does not cater to younger audiences, so bear this in mind if you’re looking to travel with family.
