Ship Rating:

The interior of the MS Nordlys is inspired by the Northern Lights. Beautiful woodwork and brass fittings provide the ship with an elegant, yet comfortable, touch. Artwork from various Norwegian artists decorates the hallways. Guests have a variety of activities to keep them busy on board, including an arcade, a library and a fitness center, complete with sauna. Or, for a more relaxing experience, simply observe the surrounding landscapes in one of the panoramic lounges located on the top deck. The crew size on each sailing varies to maintain a ratio of one crew member for every three passengers. Nordlys
