Ship
Z- OLD - MS Maude
Overview

MS Maud is designed to take you on an expedition of the Norwegian coast in maximum comfort, equipped for a sustainable and memorable expedition.

MS Maud, the current MS Trollfjord, is named after one of the most famous polar vessels of all time, Roald Amundsens "Maud" from 1917. The original "Maud" got her name from the first Queen of modern-day Norway. She also had her namesake in Hurtigruten's 1925 flagship DS Dronning Maud ("DS Queen Maud").

Today´s MS Maud is an ice class 1C ship equipped with advanced technology that makes her exceptionally well-suited for expedition cruises in Norway.

Premium comfort, Science Center and gym

The interior of the ship features natural Scandinavian materials like granite, oak, birch and wool, to create a relaxed and stylish atmosphere. On deck 5, you can visit our Science Center, which is packed with state-of-the-art technology and interactive learning tools.

On deck 9, you can enjoy the spectacular views from the Observation deck, workout in the outdoor gym and soak in one of the hot tubs. And there´s no better way to enjoy the view than with a refreshment in the Panorama lounge.

Sustainable expeditions

MS Maud is a more sustainable expedition ship. She is equipped with a battery pack, , that will support the ship's engines, and drastically cut emissions.. The ship sources power from land when docked, and this eliminates shoreside emissions.

In addition, the vessel´s engines have been upgraded into low-emission engines, complying with all current and projected regulations.
