MS Roald Amundsen

In 2019, Hurtigruten added a brand new ship to its fleet: the MS Roald Amundsen. The state of the art vessel features new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible.

MS Roald Amundsen

About the Ship

  • Year built 2019
  • Shipyard Kleven Yards
  • Passenger capacity 530 (500 in Antarctica)
  • Gross tonnage 20 889 T
  • Length 140 m
  • Beam 23,6 m

MS Roald Amundsen is the first of two hybrid ships Hurtigruten will add to its fleet over the next few years. Emissions are cut by sailing with electrical propulsion. Innovative sustainable technology reduces fuel consumption and CO2-emissions on the ships by 20 percent. 

Named after the first man to cross Antarctica and reach the South Pole, MS Roald Amundsen leads the way towards an even more sustainable way of traveling. The ship is specially constructed for voyages in polar waters. It serves as a comfortable base camp at sea – bringing adventurers from all over the world to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.

Cabins and interior design

The stunning scenery is reflected in a rich and comfortable interior design. Scandinavian materials from nature, such as granite, oak, birch and wool are used to create relaxed and stylish cabins and public areas. All cabins are outside, 50% have private balconies, and aft suites features private outdoor hot tubs with spectacular views. 

 

Observation Deck

One of the most eye-catching exterior design features is the two-level indoor/outdoor Observation Deck. It is an ideal place to scan the scenery and watch wildlife with your binoculars.

Interactive Science Center 

This is the core of the onboard experience. The Science Center is packed with state of the art technology and high tech gadgets such as touch screens and science equipment. This is where guests and staff/crew meet, mingle and create a deeper understanding for the areas you explore. The flexible venue features lecture spaces, a small library, and speciality areas for workshops in photography, biology, and more. This is also where you'll find Hurtigruten’s hand picked Expedition Team.  


Restaurants

MS Roald Amundsen will feature three restaurants inspired by Nordic and Norwegian heritage:

  • Aune Main Dining, named after the Norwegian ship chandler and polar expedition supplier Tinus Aune.
  • Fredheim - the ships’ informal and social meeting place – named after a 1900s hunting station on Svalbard.
  • Lindstrøm, a speciality restaurant named after Adolf Lindstrøm, the favorite chef of the Norwegian polar heroes.

 

After a day of exploring new destinations, guests can relax and rejuvenate in the elegant Explorer Lounge, a large gym and Wellness center, or enjoy the scenery and sunsets on the massive in- and outdoor Observation Decks with the aft infinity pool and hot tubs as one of the highlights.
