To see discounted cruises on this ship, use the Find a Bargain box on the left.

With barely more than 200 cabins, this ship offers a luxurious, yet intimate setting as you cruise Northern Europe. The MS Polarlys embodies style inside and out. The ship is adorned with varieties of Norwegian art, including marble sculptures and intricate glass art. In addition to the vessel’s beautiful mahogany paneling and brass-accented interior are the breath-taking views from all angles of the ship. Guests may enjoy stunning views from the ships panoramic lounge, located on the top deck. Relax and unwind in the sauna, curl up with a book from the library, or mingle with other passengers in one of the ship’s bars or lounges. Even the children onboard have a place to call their own located in the middle of the ship. The crew size on each sailing varies to maintain a ratio of one crew member for every three passengers.
