Specially designed for some of the most spectacular waters of the planet, MS Roald Amundsen is equipped with large battery packs and groundbreaking green technology.
The ship is powered by both batteries and fuel.Using these two sources of power reduces fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by 20 percent.
MS Roald Amundsen’s maiden season includes expedition cruises along the Norwegian coast, to Svalbard and Greenland, before becoming the first hybrid powered ship to attempt a traverse of the legendary Northwest Passage – following in the wake of the namesake explorer Roald Amundsen’s famed expedition.
In addition to eco-friendly expedition cruises along the west coast of North- and South-America – with destinations bigger cruise ships cannot reach – MS Roald Amundsen will head to the extreme south for a full 2019/2020 Antarctica season.
The stunning scenery will be reflected in a modern Scandinavian design – with features spanning from the high-tech Amundsen Science Center, vast observation decks, an infinity pool, panoramic sauna, wellness center, three restaurants, bars, Explorer Lounge, aft-facing suites with private outdoor hot tubs, and the laidback atmosphere that creates the special Hurtigruten on board feel.
