MS Otto Sverdrup
MS Otto Sverdrup is designed for exciting, sustainable expedition cruises along the Norwegian coastline MS Otto Sverdrup (formerly MS Finnmarken) is named after a great Norwegian polar hero. Sverdrup was the first person to ski across Greenland, was a key member of polar expeditions and was the captain of the legendary Arctic ship “Fram”. He also served as a Hurtigruten captain between expeditions. MS Otto Sverdrup is an advanced, more sustainable vessel. The ship also has the ability to access shore power when docked, cutting shoreside emissions. Comfort, Learning and Wellness Natural Scandinavian materials like granite, oak, birch and wool have been used in the ship´s renovation to create a relaxed and stylish atmosphere that adds to the premium onboard experience. This ship also offers a chance to indulge yourself in our new Wellness area, complete with gym, treatment rooms and sauna, and guests can enjoy the outdoor pool and hot tubs on deck 7. For taking in the magnificent scenery, outdoor observation decks are located on deck 8, and in the aft of decks 5 and 6. More sustainable voyages - powered with biofuel Sustainability is the core of every detail of your Hurtigruten adventure. Hurtigruten is constantly pushing boundaries, and aim to become completely emission free. As the first cruise line in the world, Hurtigruten is permanently introducing biodiesel as fuel on a number of ships – including MS Otto Sverdrup. Biodiesel reduces (CO2) emissions with up to 80 % (compared to regular marine diesel). Hurtigruten’s environmentally certified biodiesel is produced from waste from industries such as fisheries and agriculture – which means no palm oil is used in the biofuel production and no negative effects on rainforests. Hurtigruten will use biodiesel in combination with other low-emission fuel. As the rest of the Hurtigruten fleet, single-use plastic is banned on MS Otto Sverdrup. This ship is also equipped for shore power, completely eliminating emissions when docked in ports with shore power facilities. Facilities on board MS Otto Sverdrup Cabins and public areas Norway´s stunning scenery is reflected in the ship´s interior design. Comfortable cabins and suites feature natural Scandinavian materials, such as granite, oak, birch and wool. Our stylish and welcoming public areas create great places to watch the world´s most beautiful coastline pass by. Science Center The hub of on-board learning is our Science Centre, an edutainment venue where guests and crew meet to create a deeper understanding of the areas we explore. Located on deck 4, this area is packed with state-of-the-art technology and interactive tools.
