Cruise line, Hurtigruten, has announced it will be adding a new ship to its 17 vessel wide fleet, with a continued aim of providing ‘green’ travel for its passengers.


The company will introduce another hybrid powered expedition ship which will take guests to some of the most spectacular areas of the planet, in a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly way.

The ship expects to accommodate up to 530 guests and will be custom built for some of the most extreme conditions on the planet, with a specially designed ice-strengthened hull.

The design, construction, engineering and advanced technology will be based on Hurtigruten’s two next-generation ships, MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen, currently under construction.

The new Hurtigruten hybrid powered expedition ship is expected to be delivered in 2021. A name has not yet been revealed.
