MS Spitsbergen’s maneuverability and size makes her exceptionally suitable for exploring the coast of Norway and bringing guests even closer to nature. She is named after the Arctic crown of Norway – the archipelago of Spitsbergen. After a complete reconstruction, MS Spitsbergen now features elegant, modern, comfortable public areas and cabins and the decor that reflects the color palette of the sea. The ship is environmentally-friendly and improvements have be made to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. She is equipped and adapted for sailings in polar waters.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
