MS Nordlys is named after the spectacular natural phenomenon visible in these waters between October and March. Nordlys, meaning the Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis), which appear in the sky of the Northern Hemisphere as green and sometimes red flaming "waves" and will leave you with memories that will last forever. MS Nordlys was built in 1994 and its art, décor and colours are all inspired by the Northern Lights phenomenon. With her light and delicate interior, Norwegian artists have created a unique and distinct environment onboard. Passengers are encouraged to relax in the ship's elegant maritime atmosphere, panorama lounges and comfortable reclining chairs. Suited to the mature, destination focused cruiser.
