Ms Nordstjernen was originally built in 1956 as a ferry serving the coast of Norway and was extensively modernised in 2000 for exclusive Arctic explorer sailings. Today she takes explorers on adventures in the waters around Spitsbergen. Despite modernisation, she still retains the character of an old Atlantic ship, restored to her former splendor with new brass, classic wooden interiors and all her original art.
There is plenty of outside deck space to offer you the opportunity to get extra close to the untouched nature of the Polar Arctic. The MS Nordstjernen carries just 290 passengers and is equipped with a dining room and bar, a café, a panorama lounge and a library. There are a number of cosy interior and exterior cabins, the majority of which have upper and lower berths.
Overall this ship offers an excellent value way to see the waters around Spitsbergen and see the amazing wildlife on offer here, including the chance of spotting Polar Bears!
