The art exhibited aboard ship includes original paintings that were once on board the old Hurtigruten ship, MS Harald Jarl. MS Trollfjord´s sun deck and hot tub are on deck 9. The ship´s spacious, two-storey panorama lounge is above the bow. Its wall-to-wall windows bathe the lounge in natural light and provide extraordinary views.
Expedition Team on board
MS Trollfjord has her own on-board Expedition Team and serve as a university at sea. Interesting lectures, presentations and activities inside the ship as well as out on the sun deck make this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the season and the waters we sail in. The Expedition Team will host a lecture and presentation programme and evening gatherings daily.
Out on deck you can participate in live points of interest to learn more about the nature, culture and other phenomena we encounter along the coast. In addition, the Expedition Team will introduce you to the uniquely Norwegian notion of `friluftsliv´ (outdoor life), and encourage you take part in `friluftsliv´ hikes and activities during the journey. Our dedicated Expedition Teams have one mission: to enhance your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, and culture you encounter during the voyage.

Expedition cruise from 2021
From January 2021, MS Trollfjord will be sailing expedition cruises along the Norwegian coast, and will be equipped with a Science Center, three new restaurant concepts and the Explorer Lounge & Bar. In addition, the Expedition team on board will enhance your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, and culture you encounter during the voyage.
The hub of onboard learning is our Science Center, an edutainment venue where guests and crew meet to create a deeper understanding of the areas we explore. On deck 5, you can visit our Science Center, which is packed with interactive learning tools.
Welcome onboard to a culinary journey and our award-winning food sourcing program - Norways coastal Kitchen. You will find ingredients from our local suppliers along the coast in all three restaurants. Restaurant Aune - our main dining room; Fredheim - with casual fast food and plant based alternatives; and our fine dining restaurant Lindstrøm, named after Polar Hero and Amundsen Chef Adolf Lindstrøm. Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy.
After a day of exploring, guests can relax and rejuvenate in the hot tubs, exercise in the gym, take in the scenery in the elegant Explorer Lounge & bar or browse in the on-board shop. Our welcoming public areas create great places to watch the world´s most beautiful coastline pass by.
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 Trollfjord.
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 Trollfjord. This ship is also equipped for shore power, completely eliminating emissions when docked in ports with shore power facilities.

Did you know..?
Together with Norwegian Institute of Water Research (NIVA), Hurtigruten is continuing its almost 100 year old tradition of contributing to oceanographic research.
MS Trollfjord is carrying a so-called Ferrybox that automatically collects data from the waters we sail. Every 15 minutes, the scientific station located in the forward port side pump room goes online and pushes valuable environmental data on salinity, temperature, algae, particles, etc. to NIVA. This falls into the proud tradition of Hurtigruten's social responsibility to support science and communities around us.
