MS Roald Amundsen

Representing the pinnacle of hybrid propulsion in Hurtigruten cruise ship design, MS Roald Amundsen begins its polar expeditions from July 2018 and boasts features aplenty.

About MS Roald Amundsen

The strikingly distinctive black and red silhouette of MS Roald Amundsen will offer environmentally sustainable cruising among the world’s most remote and beautiful polar regions from July 2018.

By introducing an electrical hybrid propulsion engine that is as quiet as it is powerful, MS Roald Amundsen has also been outfitted with the amenities and comforts you’ve come to expect of a cruise ship of this class. With up to 530 guests welcomed onboard as she journeys around the world’s most rugged winter wonderlands, this cruise ship is one that is made for those born with a spirit of adventure.

With the remotest polar waters serving as the central focal area for MS Roald Amundsen, services and amenities onboard this Hurtigruten ship are fortunately enriched by the comforts of home, enabling guests to feel revitalised and recharged however cold it gets outside. Cabins on the cruise ship run from cosy to opulent, each affording tremendous views of your voyage while being furnished with big, comfortable beds and TVs.

On the larger end of the scale, MS Roald Amundsen offers spectacular cabins in its Expedition Suite class, which are large and airy. Each is thoughtfully furnished with bathrobes and a minibar, together with an espresso maker. Arctic Superior cabins are similarly styled, forming a happy middle ground where you can keep comfortable during your stay.

However you choose to spend your time onboard MS Roald Amundsen, you’ll be assured warmth and serenity at sea, while seeing the vistas of the lesser known treasures of the globe, propelled by ingenuity and distinction.

Visiting 34 ports, Hurtigruten have an exceptional opportunity to get fresh produce from local suppliers everyday. This means delicious new and fresh ingredients, both from coastal and inland areas. 


Fredheim Restaurant

Based on the season's best ingredients, the chefs create either three-course dinners or lavish buffets. Being a coastal voyage, seafood dominates the menu, accompanied with fresh vegetables and delicately flavoured sauces. Each dinner ends with traditional desserts, like home-made cakes, puddings, berries or sorbet. Breakfast and lunch is served buffet style, while dinner is a set dinner.

Enjoy a lecture on the ship's deck or in one of the conference rooms and learn something new.

Lectures

There are often lectures and presentations held on deck out in the fresh air. These lectures and presentations are related to marine and coastal life. For example, there is a performance of "Arctic Circle Ceremony" or "Leaving the Arctic" rituals when crossing the Arctic Circle, cod tongue-cutting demonstrations and training on how to fillet a fish, all of which are led by local fishermen. There are other activities on board, such as hunting for the Northern Lights in winter or sleeping on deck under the midnight sun.

Of course, all of these activities and lectures are voluntary. If you wish to simply relax and enjoy the view of the ever-changing scenery, you are more than welcome to do so.

Also enjoy a lecture in one of the conference rooms.
