After the most extensive upgrade in Hurtigruten’s 125 years of history, MS Finnmarken will reemerge as a brand new premium expedition cruise ship.
From 2021 the fully refurbished MS Finnmarken will explore handpicked destinations along the rugged Norwegian coastline on year-round expedition cruises.
Already from 2020, guests travelling on Hurtigruten’s Original Coastal Voyage along the Norwegian coastline will get a unique opportunity to experience a brand new MS Finnmarken. Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam says: “We will transform her into a full-fledged premium expedition cruise ship, with all the comforts, facilities and expertise you need for creating a perfect adventure”.
All cabins and suites will be fully refurbished. Using natural Scandinavian materials such as granite, oak, birch and wool, this will create a relaxed and stylish look and feel, and add to the premium on-board experience. On deck 8 aft, in the current gym and sauna area, five large suites (pictured above) with large panoramic windows and spectacular views will be added.
A Science Center will be added on deck 4. Packed with state-of-the-art technology and high-tech gadgets such as touch screens, science equipment and other interactive features, the edutainment area will also be the on-board HQ for the ship’s Expedition Team
