MS Vesteralen

Named for the first ship to ever sail for Hurtigruten back in 1893, MS Vesteralen is one of the smallest in the fleet. She has bright, welcoming décor throughout and is perfect for exploration cruising, with amazing views offered from the public bars and lounges.


There’s a wonderful art collection on-board to create a charming ambience, while the ship’s restaurant serves excellent menus created using the freshest locally-sourced ingredients. With a limited capacity, you’ll become fast friends with the crew and other passengers, swapping travel stories of an evening – or you may simply prefer to soak in the majestic scenery as you sail.


  • Launched in 2020
  • 1004 feet
  • 2909 passengers
  • 20 crew

With the ship’s emphasis on some of the world´s most beautiful and untouched scenery, the leisure facilities are minimal on-board. You can head to the lounges and unwind amongst friends, or enjoy the incredible scenery as it passes you by from the top deck. The expedition team on-board offer a fantastic insight into the destinations on your itinerary, with lectures, presentations and activities to enjoy on-board. There is also a children’s playroom, fitness centre and shop on-board.

Hurtigruten does not allow children under five to travel to Antarctica, with no other age restrictions elsewhere. Though MS Vesteralen does offer a playroom for children, the ship does not majorly cater to younger audiences, so bear this in mind if you’re looking to travel with family.

When it comes to entertainment, you won’t find any Broadway shows or high-end productions, but the ship does offer an exceptional art collection and a panoramic observation lounge from which you can enjoy the most scenic views.

Lounges include the Vesteralstuen Lounge, Trollfjord Lounge and the Fyret Panorama Lounge – each of which is perfect for an evening tipple with your new found friends..
