MS Eirik Raude

MS Eirik Raude

MS Eirik Raude (MS Midnatsol prior to the makeover) is named for the Viking explorer, also known as Eric the Red. He discovered, named and settled Greenland in the 10th century.

Like its namesake, MS Eirik Raude is a great adventurer, meant to explore the rugged Norwegian coastline all year long. MS Eirik Raude has a modern design and progressive environmental profile. The interior’s bright, colourful décor is inspired by Norway’s sunny summer days, a motif reflected in many of the pieces of Norwegian modern art on board. The vessel’s sun deck and hot tub are on deck 9. Key features on MS Eirik Raude include a spacious, two-storey panorama lounge above the bow. Its wall-to-wall windows bathe the lounge in natural light and provide extraordinary views.
