Built in 1956, MS Nordstjernen was extensively modernized in 2000 and 2013 for exclusive Arctic sailing. Despite modernization, it still retains the aura of an old Atlantic ship, restored to its former splendor with new brass, classic wooden interiors and all of its original art. Inside, you’ll find a dining room and bar, a cafe, a panorama lounge and a library. Much of the outside deck is covered, meaning that you can get up close with the untouched nature of this Arctic wilderness even in rough weather. Ms Nordstjernen is equipped with both interior and exterior cabins, the majority of which have upper and lower berths and some of which have ensuites.
