HURTIGRUTEN – SHIP VISIT MS ROALD AMUNDSEN PUBLIC AREAS

Last year in 2019, I had the pleasure and chance of participating in a ship tour of Hurtigruten’s MS Roald Amundsen, the first ever Hybrid Expedition Ship in the world. It is the most environmental friendly and sustainable expedition ship there is right now, with the exception of MS Fridtjof Nansen, her sister ship of course. The use of hybrid technology reduces fuel consumption as … Continue reading HURTIGRUTEN – SHIP VISIT MS ROALD AMUNDSEN PUBLIC AREAS
