MS Polarlys (built 1996, last refurbished in 2016) is the last one of a series of all six advertised as “contemporary" Hurtigruten ships - together with Kong Harald, Nordkapp, Nordlys, Nordnorge and Richard With. These ships serve company’s "Norwegian Coastal Voyages" (NCV) program for cruise ferry travel by passenger-cargo vessels with regularly (year-round) scheduled ferry crossings along Norway’s coast and visiting a total of 34 different seaports between Bergen and Kirkenes.
MS Polarlys cruise ship deck plan shows a total of 214 staterooms for 473 passengers (max capacity is 619 guests on Norwegian coastal voyages), served by 64 crew/staff. The ship has 7 decks (6 passenger-accessible, 4 with cabins, all accessed by 2 elevators), 1 car lift (connecting decks 2-3 only, capacity 26 cars), 4 bars, 5 lounges, 1 bakery (Deck 7), 2 lecture rooms (Deck 4), Spa/Sauna and Fitness (Deck 7), 2 jacuzzies (outdoor spa pools aft on Deck 6), small Infirmary (no resident doctor or nurse). The ship’s interior design is marked by polished mahogany and brass finishings, a contemporary art collection of works by Norwegian artists (including marble sculptures, paintings, glass artworks), floor-ceiling windows in all public spaces. The Polarlys ship has four cabin decks with mostly twin-bed configuration outside staterooms with large-size picture windows.
The Polarlys ship’s name translates as “polar light” – a Norwegian Arctic phenomenon, that Hurtigruten celebrates as a special themed “Hunting the Light” event in the line’s winter program.
