- Ship Overview
The name Midnatsol (Midnight Sun) is something to live up to, and this ship, dedicated to the Norwegian summer, does just that. The interior's bright, colorful décor is inspired by the warm sunny climate, a motif also reflected in the many pieces of Norwegian modern art on display. MS Midnatsol was put into service on April 15, 2003, and is the fourth Hurtigruten ship to bear this name. The ship has a strong environmental profile and a modern design, with Norwegian materials used extensively throughout its interiors. The two-story panorama lounge above the bow, and the large glass expanses, allows natural light to enter as well as providing extraordinary views. There are also 23 beautifully appointed suites, some of which have a balcony.
