Review of MS Trollfjord

The 2003-built MS Trollfjord cruise ship is the second of three “Millennium-class” Hurtigruten ships, together with Finnmarken (Otto Sverdrup) and Midnatsol (Maud).

NEWS: In 2021, Hurtigruten added 4 old ships to the company's expedition fleet - Spitsbergen (2009), Midnatsol (2003), Trollfjord (2002) and Finnmarken (2002). This fleet also includes Fram (2007) and the 3 newbuilds - Roald Amundsen (2019), Fridtjof Nansen (2020) and TBN (2022).

Following an extensive drydock refurbishment and refit, in 2021 the Trollfjord ship will be renamed "MS Maud".
