Review of MS Midnatsol

Launched in 2003, ms Midnatsol is the third and last of three “Millennium-class” Hurtigruten ships, together with ms Finnmarken and ms Trollfjord.

History - construction & ownership

Hurtigruten (translated as "Express Route") is a daily freight and passenger shipping service along Norway's northern and western coast between Bergen and Kirkenes. Often referred to as "Norwegian Coastal Express", the ships of the line sail nearly the entire length of the country and complete their round-trip journey in 11 days. The cruise has been described as "World's Most Beautiful Sea Voyage," and features highlights including the Lofoten Islands, the Hanseatic League city of Bergen and the Geiranger fjord. Hurtigruten has around 2% of the worldwide cruise market.MS Midnatsol cruise ship

The 16,151-ton, 1,000-passenger cruise ship ms Midnatsol sailed her maiden voyage in April 2003 along the Norwegian coast. Her name means Midnight Sun and this magnificent ship has become a favourite with bright interior (decorated with a celestial theme), colourful décor and modern art of Norway on display. Together with MS Trollfjord, her sister ship, she is one of the newest in Hurtigruten fleet. This has been the 4th cruise ship to be named ms Midnatsol since the creation of the company. 

Cruise itinerary program

MS Midnatsol itinerary program is based on Norwegian Coastal Voyages. Ship's routes include the beautiful Norwegian's fjords. Midnatsol is mostly used as a ferry for both passengers and cars. However, some guests stay on board for round-trip 12-day itineraries out of Bergen and Kirkenes.

In 2016 Fall the Hurtigruten expedition ship Spitsbergen replaced Midnatsol, which started its inaugural Antarctica cruise itinerary program in South America.

Cabins

Most ms Midnatsol staterooms are 75-140-sq.foot Oceanview rooms (188). There are a total of 301 staterooms in 11 categories. The largest aboard ms Midnatsol are the Owner’s Suites (480 ft2). Passengers may take advantage of some staterooms amenities such as telephone, bath products, radio, heated floors, and a writing desk.

The vessel joined the fleet in 2003 as sister to Trollfjord. It is the fourth Hurtigruten ship to bear this name. One of the previous namesakes was the Lindblad Expeditions ship National Geographic Explorer.

  • MS Midnatsol cruises along the Norway's coast. Some use the vessel as transportation (ferry). Other are cruise passengers booking the full 12-day round trip itinerary. Departing from port Bergen, the ship sails to port Kirkenes roundtrip. This is an Arctic outpost near Russia's border, stopping at uniquely picturesque 34 ports along the way. Norwegian coastal cruise passengers can opt for 5-11 nights stays, with the full 12-day sailing from Bergen to Kirkenes, then going back southbound.

  • On Hurtigruten Norwegian coastal voayges, the line offers flight-cruise package deals. Bookings are protected with ATOL Certificate. ATOL stands for "Air Travel Organisers' Licensing" (Civil Aviation Authority, UK).
  • (December 14, 2003 accident) Midnatsol ship was between Alesund and Maloy on a southbound course, when main power supply failed and all engine power was lost. The vessel was approaching a reef and the anchors tried to stop the drift, but failed. Passengers (102 at that time) were ordered to the lifeboats, but one of the anchors caught and the main engines were restarted. The cause of the accident was an overgrown inlet to the coolant systems.
