Svalbard expedition ship MS Malmö

This ship has a lovely patina and has been listed as a traditional ship of cultural value since 2004. During 2013/14 she was gently refurbished to retain her original charm. New navigation and safety equipment was installed and the vessel has passed all neccesary inspections and safety checks required. The summer 2014 MS Malmö successfully made her first season in Svalbard as an expedition ship.

MS Malmö is a homely ship of maritime historical dignity, already loved by many.She is decorated in a classic style with an old fashioned Captain´s lounge and beautiful wooden decks. A perfect ship for a small group of photographers that need a lot of deck space, or a small family group looking for adventure.
