    The Hurtigruten MS Midnatsol lives two lives at opposite ends of the earth. The ship is a coastal liner sailing along the scenic western coast of Norway in the summer months of the northern hemisphere. The Midnatsol then moves to South America and Antarctica to sail in this southernmost region of the world during the austral summer months. 

    This photo gallery provides a look at some of the different types of accommodations on the MS Midnatsol. 

    Hurtigruten MS Midnatsol Cabins

    The Hurtigruten MS Midnatsol coastal liner has 298 cabins and suites with 638 berths. This fascinating vessel has features of a cruise ship, freighter, and a passenger/car ferry in Norway and an expedition ship in Antarctica and Patagonia.

    This ship is both a cruise ship with overnight accommodations and a ferry for those traveling along the western coast of Norway. In addition to the overnight cruise passengers, this Norwegian coastal liner also can carry another 300+ day trip passengers, along with tons of cargo...MORE and 45 cars. 

    When the ship is in the southern hemisphere, Hurtigruten transforms it into an expedition ship. The storage area for cars is used for the Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs), kayaks, and other expedition equipment. The cabins stay the same, but the ship carries less than 500 guests. 

    These photos demonstrate some of the eight different types of accommodations on the MS Midnatsol of the Hurtigruten Group--Owner's Suite, Grand Suite, Mini-Suite, Outside Cabins, Outside Cabins with Obstructed Views, Outside Cabins with Portholes, Inside Cabins, and Handicap-Accessible Cabins.

    The Ocean View cabins on the Midnatsol vary in size from 86 square feet to 140 square feet. This Category U cabin in the photo above has a refrigerator, but many do not.

    The Ocean View cabins on the ms Midnatsol have basic accommodations--bed, small bath with shower, chair, and desk/vanity. The bathroom has a heated floor, which is delightful to have in any hemisphere. Not only does the heated floor keep you warm, it heats up the bathroom enough to dry out any wet clothing you have hung on the clothes line in the shower.

    The bathrooms in all the cabins (except the mini-suites and suites) are almost identical, so this shower is representative of the ms Midnatsol. It has a clothes line for drying wet jackets or pants.

    With this corner bed, guests can wake up and peek outdoors. In the summer, the room darkening curtains really come in handy since the sun doesn't set until after midnight (if at all).
