MS Roald Amundsen

Hurtigruten added Roald Amundsen to its fleet in 2019. The ship offers state-of-the-art technology to reduce fuel consumption and features environmentally sustainable hybrid propulsion. Roald Amundsen is part of a fleet of new hybrid ships which Hurtigruten are introducing, with the use of hybrid electricity and environmentally-conscious changes shaping the way the cruise line operates for the better.

The ship is named after Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian explorer who was the first man to cross Antarctica and reach the South Pole – mirroring the pioneering changes of polar exploration found in the ship itself.

Guests on-board can enjoy high-tech gadgets, immersive edutainment and stunning scenery to make it an unforgettable ship to sail upon.

Fredheim – named after a 1900’s hunting station on Svalbard – is a social meeting place which offers light bites and snacks, while Lindstrøm is a speciality restaurant offering low key Nordic cooking.
