Here at Cannon Travel we have some very exciting news for you!

This Saturday – 17th February 2018, Hurtigruten’s new MS Roald Amundsen touched water for the first time during a ceremony at the Kleven Yard in Ulsteinvik, Norway.

The successful launch marks an important milestone in the construction of the world’s first hybrid powered expedition ship, that will be fitted with large battery packs for reduced emissions. 

MS Roald Amundsen is the first of Hurtigruten’s two groundbreaking hybrid ships, custom built with green technology to explore some of the most spectacular waters of our Planet. Construction of MS Fridtjof Nansen, due to debut in 2019, is well under way at Kleven Yards where MS Roald Amundsen is now undergoing her final outfitting.

The launching saw some special attendance: From the bay outside the yard, guests and crew on MS Lofoten, built in 1964 and Hurtigruten’s oldest vessel, greeted the newest addition to the Hurtigruten fleet.

Here are Cannon we are great fans of Hurtigruten from their knowledge of everything Norwegian to their passion for expedition cruising in the greenest way poscontract one of our Travel Advisors today.
