Ship Overview

MS Fridtjof Nansen is the latest addition to Hurtigruten’s fleet of custom-built ships – and represents the next generation of expedition ships. She will explore some of the most spectacular corners of the globe.

Featuring Hurtigruten's revolutionary, battery-powered, hybrid propulsion system, MS Fridtjof Nansen will be a near identical twin to her sister ship MS Roald Amundsen.

Combining state-of-the-art technology and a premium on board experience with Hurtigruten’s 125 years of experience and unparalleled destinations, the two Norwegian built ships introduce the next generation of adventure travel.

On board MS Fridtjof Nansen

The stunning scenery will be reflected in a rich and comfortable interior design. Scandinavian materials from nature, such as granite, oak, birch, and wool will be used to create relaxed and stylish cabins and public areas. All cabins are outside cabins, and 50% of all cabins will have private balconies. Aft suites will feature private outdoor Jacuzzis with spectacular views.

The core of the onboard experience is the Nansen Science Center, an edutainment venue where guests and crew members meet to foster a deeper understanding of the areas we explore. The Nansen Science Center will also be the onboard headquarters for the expedition team.

After a day of exploring new destinations, guests can relax and rejuvenate in the elegant Explorer Lounge, a large gym and Wellness center, or enjoy the scenery and sunsets on the massive in- and outdoor Observation Decks with the aft infinity pool and hot tubs as a couple of the highlights.

Each expedition voyage is accompanied by a hand-picked team of specialists and modern-day explorers. Highly experienced, passionate, and knowledgeable, the expedition team will be your guides and guardians on your cruise of exploration, instructing you on safety, sustainability, and science.

MS Fridtjof Nansen will feature a variety of custom-built expedition equipment, including kayaks, a fleet of Blueye underwater drones, and expedition boats for safe landings in remote areas.

In the Footsteps of a Great Explorer

The newest addition to our fleet will honor the heritage of her namesake – the Norwegian explorer, scientist, humanitarian, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Fridtjof Nansen. Known for his innovations in Arctic expeditions, Nansen led the first crossing of Greenland on cross-country skis. He is perhaps most famous for his attempt to reach the geographical North Pole during the Fram Expedition (1893-1896).

Interestingly, after Nansen's Fram expedition, the ship was passed on to another great explorer who secretly planned an expedition to the South Pole - Roald Amundsen.

Featuring Hurtigruten’s revolutionary, battery-powered, hybrid propulsion system,  MS Fridtjof Nansen will be a near identical twin to her sister ship MS Roald Amundsen.
