Passengers can get a flavour of old fashioned cruising with a trip on board the MS Lofoten. The ship was launched in 1964 and although the cabins are small, passengers return year after year to enjoy the stylish lounges and panoramic views.
The MS Lofoten is named after the Lofoten Islands found off the Norwegian coast, just north of the Arctic Circle. The interior of ship echoes the classic era or cruising with the public spaces decked with wood panels, brass railings, leather armchairs while oil paintings adorn the walls.
The cabins are compact and many don’t have en suite facilities and even the outside cabins only offer small portholes. However sailing aficionados choose to sail on the Lofoten because of its rich heritage and old-fashioned atmosphere.
The ship sails the beautiful coast of Norway with a friendly English speaking crew. Many local travellers use the ship as a ferry service as the ship hops between ports.
