MS Polarlys was refurbished in 2016 and now features a modern, Arctic-inspired interior. On board 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 Jacuzzis. There is a comfortable bar at the front of the ship where you can enjoy a nice traditional drink. The vessel also has a large compass area were you find the reception, a tour guide, conference room and shop.
The MS Polarlys offers guests a choice of warm and cosy cabins, with options ranging from Inside, Outside, Mini Suite and Suite. For unforgettable scenery, choose a cabin with a sea view to make the most of sailing through some of the world’s most spectacular fjords and waters.
Savour bountiful breakfast buffets and three-course evening meals in the dining room, with its panoramic windows to ensure you don’t miss the magnificent views even when dining. Experience delicious authentic Norwegian cuisine and eat like a true local with Hurtigruten’s unique dining concept, Norway's Coastal Kitchen.
