Named after the first man to cross Antarctica and reach the South Pole, MS ROALD AMUNDSEN leads the way towards an even more sustainable way of traveling. The ship is specially constructed for voyages in polar waters. It serves as a comfortable basecamp at sea – bringing adventurers from all over the world to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.

03 July 2019 first cruise from Tromsø to Hamburg.

MS ROALD AMUNDSEN is a new hybrid-powered Hurtigruten (Norwegian Coastal Express) expedition cruise ship. She has been built by Kleven Yards of Norway and started her maiden voyage on July 3rd, 2019 from the Norwegian port Tromsø to Hamburg. She and her sistership FRIDTJOF NANSEN are the first hybrid-powered ships in the Hurtigruten fleet. On the evening of Sept. 10, 2019, the MS ROALD AMUNDSEN arrived Nome, Alaska, captained by Kai Albrigtsen, and the operator announced the first complete passage of the more than 3,000 nautical miles passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific, by hybrid propulsion.

MS ROALD AMUNDSEN will be christened in fall 2019 in Antarctica with a chunk of ice instead of the traditional bottle of champagne.
In late February 2018, Hurtigruten announced that the company wouldn't take delivery of ROALD AMUNDSEN until 2019 because of problems at the shipyard.
In 2019, the ship will offer expedition sailings along Norway’s coast. Besides, MS ROALD AMUNDSEN will become the first hybrid ship to sail the Northwest Passage.

2020 In service, same name, and owners.
