MS Finnmarken

Travel along the Norwegian coastline from Bergen to Kirkenes and discover Norway’s hidden gems - from the old, rustic coastal villages to the striking mountains, and the awe-inspiring waterfalls. During your voyage, be sure to witness the majestic beauty of the famous Northern Lights as you journey along the coastline.

About MS Finnmarken

MS Finnmarken cruises feature comfortable, cosy cabins to contrast the cold Arctic air just outside your window. Keep warm while taking in some seriously breathtaking panoramas of the Norwegian landscape.

MS Finnmarken is marked for its Art Deco decor, which was the style back when the ship that first bore its name was constructed in 1912. Clean, geometric lines and rich colours take centre stage here, helping you get warm and comfortable against the chilly setting of the Norwegian coastline. But don’t let the cold hold you back. Think of the Arctic setting as a goosebump-inducing perk – because you won’t feel it when you’re swimming on the ship’s deck-side pool or luxuriating in the hot tub.

There’s no shortage of dining options onboard, with cafes and restaurants scattered across the ship’s desk. There’s a bar and a sauna, too. With spectacular ocean views, the sauna is one of the best places onboard to relax and rejuvenate. And after a long day of sightseeing and exploring, there’s no better way to get cosy than by browsing the contents of MS Finnmarken’s homely library.

The top deck features a panorama lounge where you can feel free to sit back, relax and enjoy the majestic vistas of Norway with Hurtigruten. With remarkable views throughout, MS Finnmarken guarantees to give you a truly memorable experience.

Based on the season's best ingredients, the chefs create either three-course dinners or lavish buffets. Being a coastal voyage, seafood dominates the menu, accompanied with fresh vegetables and delicately flavoured sauces. Each dinner ends with traditional desserts, like home-made cakes, puddings, berries or sorbet. Breakfast and lunch is served buffet style, while dinner is à la carte.

Passengers are requested to go to the restaurant on embarkation to make their table reservation. The usual meal times are: breakfast from 08.00 to 10.00 hours (open sitting); lunch from 13.00 hours (open sitting); dinner from 18.00 hours (set seating). During high season, there may be several sittings, the times of which will be shown on board. Full board begins with a buffet dinner on departure from Bergen and ends with brunch on the arrival day back in Bergen.
