MS Nordkapp

Named after North Cape, the northernmost point on mainland Europe and a place you can visit on this once in a lifetime cruise experience, MS Nordkapp offers a variety of unique itineraries throughout the Norwegian coastline. Christened by Queen Sonja in 1996, this majestic vessel has travelled from pole to pole, sailing her maiden journey through the Shetland Islands, and even cruising in the isolated waters of Antarctica.

On board MS Nordkapp, there are a variety of things to do. From relaxing in one of two hot tubs as you soak in stunning scenes, experiencing Norwegian culture with the on-board Coastal Experience Team, seeing the awe-inspiring Northern Lights, to grabbing a traditional drink in the bar after an evening meal in one of three on board restaurants, a voyage on Hurtigruten’s Arctic-inspired MS Nordkapp is an experience you’re sure to never forget.
