The MS Finnmarken was built in 2002 and can accommodate up to 628 passengers in its stylish, art déco designed cabins. This ship has the greatest number of suites in the Hurtigruten fleet and can additionally house up to 47 cars.
The restaurant aboard the MS Finnmarken offers both regional cuisine and diverse fish specialities. Enjoy rich breakfast buffets, large lunch buffets with cold and warm dishes, and 3-course dinner menus. Three cafeterias provide beverages and snacks throughout the day, and the bars and Panorama Lounge are perfect places to relax with a drink and just take it easy.
Entertainment and Activities
The MS Finnmarken is home to two internet cafés, a library, diverse shops, and a game room. The bridge is available for viewing at certain times with advance registration. A particular highlight aboard the MS Finnmarken is that you are able to walk from the foredeck right up to the bow. You may also rent bicycles on board to use during layovers, thus allowing you to explore harbours as you please. Various land excursions should be booked in advance and are highly recommended. The entertainment programme on board includes music and dancing in the bar and performances by local choirs and musicians, providing an ideal balance between relaxation and nature exploration on your holiday.
Wellness and Sports
Special features aboard the MS Finnmarken include a swimming pool and whirlpool on deck and a wellness area with a sauna, solarium, hair salon, and massage offerings.
Relaxation and the enjoyment of nature have always been priorities with Hurtigruten. We therefore believe your time on board should be spent at your leisure. As the weather can be unpredictable at times, we advise all passengers to bring waterproof clothing. Gloves, scarves, hats, and warm layers of underclothing should not be forgotten, especially during winter months. Sturdy footwear and hiking sticks are recommended for land excursions. Among the most important items to bring are sunglasses, as ultraviolet rays reflected by ice and snow can be dangerous for the eyes.
Languages spoken on board are English and Norwegian, though German service and travel guides are also available.
