When Captain Richard With established the Norwegian Coastal Express in 1893, he made an enormous impact on life along the Norwegian coastline. The MS Richard With lives up to that legacy.
In 2022, MS Richard With was upgraded to a green hybrid ship. Emissions are cut by large battery packs combined with the ships brand new low emission engines, reducing fuel consumption and CO2-emissions by approximately 25 percent. The ship is also updated with state of the art navigation and control equipment, new waste water treatment equipment, and SRC technology that reduce NOx emissions by at least 80 percent.
Relax in one of the ship's panorama lounges and take in unforgettable views of remarkable coastal scenery, much of it the same as when the first Hurtigruten boats sailed by more than a century ago. Beautiful artworks displayed throughout the ship's interior add contemporary elegance to the vessel's maritime ambience.

Restaurants on board
Each of the ship’s restaurants is a different dining experience, but all promise our Norway’s Coastal Kitchen concept of local ingredients from local suppliers.
Meaning ‘marketplace’ in Norwegian, the main restaurant offers a variety for all three daily meals, which are a combination of buffets and set menus.
The name of this bistro is the Norwegian word for ‘wharf’. It serves salads, pizzas, and other crowd-pleasers with a Nordic twist.
Dine in style at ‘The Coast’, our à la carte option. You’ll savor exquisite dishes crafted by our most skilled chefs, using the finest ingredients the Norwegian coast has to offer.
