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° is the first of two hybrid ships Hurtigruten will add to its fleet over the next few years, cutting emissions by sailing with electrical propulsion. Hybrid technology, combined with the advanced construction° of the hull and effective use of electricity on board will reduce fuel consumption° and CO2-emissions on the ships by 20 percent. The build of these two ships represents the largest single investment in the history of Hurtigruten.

The future of shipping will be silent and emission free. MS Roald Amundsen will lead the way towards an even more sustainable° way of traveling. Sailing on electrical power is not only a great benefit for the environment, but it will also enhance the impact of experiencing nature° for the guests. The ship will be specially constructed for voyages in polar waters and serve as a comfortable basecamp at sea – bringing adventurers from all over the world to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.

It is not common practice to tip on Hurtigruten ships on the coastal voyage, but if you feel that crew members should be rewarded° for providing exceptional service, tip boxes are placed in the restaurant together with envelopes.

There is a wide range of comfortable cabins on board. MS Roald Amundsen has cabins with private facilities. Please note that check in hours in reception may open before the cabin is ready for use. You will be informed at check-in when your cabin is ready for you.

You may expect some noise and vibration in some cabins. This varies depending on the location of your cabin. Also, noise affects people differently and what may be a problem for one person may not be a problem for others. Please note that some cabins on decks with passenger access to outside areas may sometimes have an obstructed view due to other passengers walking past.


On board we serve a buffet breakfast. Lunch and dinner varies between buffets and set meals, all in accordance with your daily program. Meal times and type will be announced in the daily programme. In our main dining, the Head Waiter will assign tables prior to arrival. Information about table number and meal times will be in your cabin upon arrival. Please provide information regarding special requests for seating arrangements and dietary to your sales office/travel agent.

On the ships holding an A la Carte restaurant, our suite guests may eat their breakfast in a la carte style. For dinner, this restaurant (Lindstrøm) will be open for all guests, but for an additional charge for all other guests than suite guests.

Fredheim is the ships third dining option, and will be open all day offering international 'street food'.


The emphasis onboard is on relaxation and discovery, and not the commercial entertainment that is so often a part of conventional cruises. Hurtigruten’s aim is to get you closer to unique environments and to allow you to share the experience with your fellow travellers. Occasionally there may be some musical entertainment onboard in the evenings.

Health and fitness
MS Roald Amundsen offers a gym, sauna and outdoor hot tubs, available for all guests. In addition she has a wellness center where the guests may buy treatments as body massage, face-, hand- and foot treatments. The guests may also use the outside pool located on the same deck as the hot tubs, as well as an outdoor gym and running track on the top deck. All opening hours will be announced on board.
Kids and Teens

There is no age restriction on our other destinations. For safety reasons, children under 12 years of age will be considered on each landing. It is entirely at the Captain’s discretion to allow children on shore landings.
