Otto Sverdrup


Otto Sverdrup

MS Otto Sverdrup (formerly MS Finnmarken) is named after a great Norwegian polar hero. Sverdrup was the first person to ski across Greenland, was a key member of polar expeditions and was the captain of the legendary Arctic ship “Fram”. He also served as a Hurtigruten captain between expeditions.

The re-designed MS Otto Sverdrup is an ice class 1C ship. It's equipped with advanced maritime technology that makes her exceptionally well suited for expedition cruises in Norway.

Comfort, Learning and Wellness:
Natural Scandinavian materials like granite, oak, birch and wool have been used in the ship´s renovation to create a relaxed and stylish atmosphere that adds to the premium onboard experience.

This ship also offers a chance to indulge yourself in our new Wellness area, complete with gym, lounge, treatment rooms and sauna, and guests can enjoy the outdoor pool and hot tubs on deck 7. For taking in the magnificent scenery, Observation decks are located on deck 8, and in the aft of decks 5 and 6.
Low impact exploration

MS Otto Sverdrup is an advanced, more sustainable vessel. She is equipped with a battery pack, that will support the ship’s engines, and drastically cut emissions. The ship also has the ability to access shore power when docked, cutting shoreside emissions. And the vessel’s engines are upgraded to low-emission motors, complying with all known and upcoming regulations.

Cabins and public areas:
Norway´s stunning scenery is reflected in the ship´s interior design. Comfortable cabins and suites feature natural Scandinavian materials, such as granite, oak, birch and wool. Our stylish and welcoming public areas create great places to watch the world´s most beautiful coastline pass by.

Science Center:
The hub of on-board learning is our Science Centre, an edutainment venue where guests and crew meet to create a deeper understanding of the areas we explore. Located on deck 4, this area is packed with state-of-the-art technology and interactive tools.

Restaurants:
Our three on-board restaurants feature menus inspired by Norwegian traditions, as well as international cuisine. Whether enjoying your meal at Aune – the main diningroom; Fredheim – the informal international meeting place; or the specialty restaurant Lindstrøm, you can expect honest and delicious cuisine that reflects our destinations.

Wellness and Relaxation:
After a day of exploring, guests can relax and rejuvenate in the hot tubs, exercise in the gym, enjoy the scenery in the elegant Explorer Lounge, surf the wi-fi network, or browse in the on-board shop.

Expedition Team:
Your onboard Expedition Team will host interesting lectures, presentations and activities in the Science Center, on deck and on shore. These experts have a single mission: to enhance your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, and culture you encounter during the voyage. They will offer the chance to join in hikes and other exciting activities during the journey. We provide all the basic gear needed for each excursion.
