MS Spitsbergen

MS Spitsbergen is named after the crown jewel of Arctic Norway – the Svalbard archipelago and its biggest island, Spitsbergen. The recently refurbished expedition ship takes you far beyond the ordinary in polar waters. This vessel's size and agility brings you close to natural and cultural wonders on expeditions enhanced by our onboard lecture and science programmes. MS Spitsbergen is the true specialist in Arctic waters and the circumnavigation of Svalbard, and is the ideal ship to help you maximise your Arctic experience.

On board you will find a science center, two restaurants, a bar, a sauna and hot tub, fitness room and several lounge areas both inside and out on deck.
The Citizen Science program allows guests to assist with live scientific research during the voyage. Use of the ship’s Science Center, which also has an extensive library and advanced biological and geological microscopes, is included in your voyage. This truly gives an extra dimension to your expedition!
