Hurtigruten Cruises to Feature Battery-Powered MS

Hurtigruten cruises

Hurtigruten is one of the first cruise lines to provide battery-powered ships.

Hurtigruten Cruises is leading the industry with the first battery-powered cruise ship. The first of two hybrid vessels to be added to the Hurtigruten fleet, the MS Roald Amundsen features environmentally sustainable hybrid technology.

Hurtigruten ships are leaders in exploration travel, and their goal is to educate the industry and the world that hybrid propulsion is possible on large ships. CO2-emissions are cut by 20-percent as is fuel consumption, and it’s due to exciting and innovative sustainable technology. One of Hurtigruten’s goals is to raise and set standards for the cruise industry as a whole. If you love expedition cruises, we are ready to book you on one of the MS Roald Amundsen’s upcoming cruises.

Happy Traveler Comment
Glynna, Months after our wonderful Alaska cruise of May 2009, I was thinking about you this morning and the great CruiseExperts.com help you provided. Your attention to detail and quick action provided a wonderful, economical upgrade to a veranda room on Holland America's Ryndam! Everything about this trip was truly "first class" - and the nice bottle of California red waiting in our room was a lovely touch. I could not be more pleased with your service. When we contemplate taking another cruise, you will be the first person I contact. — Bob C.

• Hurtigurten ships are green-friendly, safe, and advanced expedition vessels.

Onboard the MS Roald Amundsen

The ship’s Observation Deck is an exciting design feature. It consists of a two-level indoor outdoor observation area for observing wildlife (binoculars and camera) and for viewing spectacular scenery.

The center of the onboard experience is in the Amundsen Science Center. Filled with state-of-the-art technology, guests, staff, and crew develop a deeper and more meaningful understanding and appreciation for the areas being explored.

The Science Center includes areas for lectures, a small library, and spaces for workshops in biology, photography, and more. Hurtigruten’s select Expedition Team can usually be found in the Science Center and are ready to help answer your questions.
