Polarlys, which means “polar light” in Norwegian, refers to the natural phenomenon that appears in the sky near the North and South Poles, commonly known as aurora that can be borealis (north pole) and australis (south pole).
MS Polarlys was refurbished in 2016 and now features a modern, Arctic-inspired interior. You will be delighted to know there are three different restaurants, the Multe bakery and ice cream bar, a sauna and fitness room.
Out on deck, you can enjoy the view from one of the two hot tubs. You can relax at a comfortable bar at the front of the ship and enjoy a nice traditional drink. The vessel also has a large compass area where you find the reception, the expedition team, conference room and shop.
The expedition team host lectures, presentation programs and evening gatherings during the expedition cruise. They all are dedicated towards one mission: to enhance your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, and culture you will encounter. In addition, the Expedition Team will introduce you to the uniquely Norwegian notion of `friluftsliv´, and encourage you to take part in `friluftsliv´ hikes and activities during the journey.
