MS Roald Amundsen

MS Roald Amundsen & MS Fridtjof Nansen are the first hybrid vessels of their size and a testament to modern engineering. The electric power allows the engines to function at optimal levels, which lowers fuel usage and CO2 emissions substantially.

The MS Roald Amundsen is a state-of-the-art expedition ship owned and operated by Hurtigruten Expeditions. Built in 2019, she is named after the famous Norwegian polar explorer, Roald Amundsen, who led the first expedition to the South Pole in 1911.

The ship is designed for polar exploration, with advanced technology and environmentally-friendly features. She is equipped with hybrid propulsion systems, which allow her to sail silently and efficiently through the most remote and sensitive areas of the world.

On board, guests can enjoy comfortable and stylish cabins, as well as a range of amenities including several restaurants, a wellness center, and a science center where they can learn about the places they are visiting.

With a capacity of up to 530 guests, the MS Roald Amundsen offers a unique and immersive experience for those seeking adventure and exploration in some of the most breathtaking and untouched parts of the world.
