MS Polarfront

MS Polarfront is a luxurious expedition vessel that is sturdy enough to bring you to destinations high up in the Arctic. The vessel was built in 1976 and served as a Norwegian weather station up to 2010. It was created to face rough seas and harsh weather conditions, making it an excellent expedition ship. After it's years as a weather ship, MS Polarfront started a second life as an arctic expedition cruise vessel. A highlight of comfort is the advanced stabilization system, unique on this type of vessel, which prevents rolling of the ship and ensures you have a comfortable voyage.
There are 2 Zodiacs and 2 pedalboats on board to go on excursions and get closer to nature.
The ship was nicely refurbished in 2018, offering a luxurious and high-end experience for it's passengers. In total there are 8 twin cabins, offering room for a maximum of 16 guests. The cabins are situated on the lower deck and all have at least 2 porthole windows. The cabins are spacious and each has their own comfortable bathroom with shower. You'll also find a hair dryer, bathrobes and bathroom products.
MS Polarfront has a large outside deck space at the front of the ship as well as on the back where you will also find a sauna and hottub to warm up after a long cold day out on the arctic seas. Inside there's a comfortable salon, dining area, library and fitness room.

MS Polarfront has implemented a COVID-19 Infection Prevention Plan to protect both customers and employees onboard the ship. Read more »
