149 Passengers (149 with upper beds)
Hurtigruten is a traditional norwegian cruise line. Since 1893 it is active in the mailboat service along the norwegian fjord coast. Every day one of the 11 mailboats starts in Bergen to the 12 day post ship route. Meanwhile Hurtigruten also offers exciting expedition cruises through South America, the Antarctica and lots of other destinations. They always focus on sustainability, that's why the ships all sail with sustainable fuel and they don't want to pollute the environment in which they sail. Rubbish collecting is only one of the interesting shore excursions.<
The Nordstjernen by Hurtigruten was built in 1956 and redecorated in 2000 and 2014. Its name comes from the polar star (astron. Stella Polaris), which is the brightest constellation Ursa Minor. 149 passengers do fit on the ship and that is why the atmosphere on board is familial. To its interior belongs a dining area, a bar, a panoramic salon and a library. In the cabins you find exclusively bunk beds. Besides, all rooms and decks are equipped with beautiful old wood, which creates together with the original works of art a, incomparable atmosphere.
