Roald Amundsen

MS Roald Amundsen, a hybrid explorer ship and sister ship of MS Fridtjof Nansen, features top quality expedition equipment. Hybrid technology, combined with the advanced construction of the hull and effective use of electricity on board will reduce fuel consumption and CO2-emissions by 20 percent.

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 hybrid propulsion system allows the ship to sail silently and her computerized dynamic positioning system eliminates the need to anchor. This prevents noise that might scare off the wildlife, and no damage to the sea bottom environment.
The ship is specially constructed for voyages in polar waters and serves as a comfortable basecamp at sea – bringing adventurers from all over the world to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.

The maximum capacity of the MS Roald Amundsen is 530 passengers, however during expeditions to Antarctica, she will carry a maximum of 500 passengers.
