MS Lofoten is a passenger vessel built in 1964, now operated by Hurtigruten in Norway. The ship is now the oldest vessel operated by the company, after the previous oldest vessel, MS Nordstjernen was withdrawn from coastal service in 2012. It operates cruises around the coast of Norway and sometimes in the Svalbard archipelago. The vessel was protected in 2000 by the Norwegian Director General of Historic Monuments to preserve Norway's cultural heritage. She has been refitted several times—in 1980, 1985, 1995 and most recently in 2004.[2][4][5]
