Northern Lights Expedition Cruise from Dover on MS Maud
Sail from Dover to the best of the Norwegian coast above and below the Arctic Circle. You’ll enjoy an adventure under the active Auroral Zone. And with departures October through February, you’ll be assured by our Northern Lights Promise of a free voyage if the aurora doesn’t occur (subject to terms & conditions). Engage in exciting optional winter excursions while you visit cozy cities, historic towns, and beautiful villages.
MS Maud is well-suited for expedition cruising, as it was upgraded in 2021 and is equipped with shore power connections.
MS Maud is named after one of the most famous polar vessels of all time, Roald Amundsen's "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").
Her bright interiors are decorated in classic art deco style. The colors are inspired by the midnight sun, allowing you to relax in warm vibes every day of the year. Channel your inner scientist in the advanced Science Center and enjoy daily lectures in the lecture hall—or listen from the comfort of your cabin with our new streaming service. Sample delicious dishes from local suppliers in the restaurants and enjoy beverages in the Explorer Lounge & Bar. On deck 9, enjoy spectacular views from the outdoor observation deck or soak in one of the hot tubs. There’s no better way to enjoy the view than with a drink from the Explorer lounge & bar.
