Hurtigruten’s Roald Amundsen has officially entered service.
The hybrid ship, which is the first cruise ship to be able to operate solely on battery power, set sail on her maiden voyage on 2 July from the Kleven Werft shipyard in Norway.
Despite her maiden voyage being delayed from 27 June, she arrived in the Norwegian city of Tromsø, her port of registry, on 2 July. She then began her maiden voyage to Hamburg, Germany, carrying 211 passengers through the North Cape, Kirkenes and the Lofoten Islands.
Onboard guests can enjoy the many expedition-focused activities, including live lectures on the Atrium screen which spans seven decks, Amundsen Science Center, observation decks, infinity pool and more.
Roald Amundsen will sail itineraries to destinations such as Antarctica, the Arctic, Alaska and British Columbia that are unreachable by larger vessels.
