Cruise Itinerary

Your journey begins in Halifax. There are red-brick heritage buildings, parks, the landmark Citadel Hill National Historic Site, top-quality museums, Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery, and a 4km seafront boardwalk. We definitely recommend spending an extra day or two here on a Pre-Programme before embarking on MS Roald Amundsen.


Welcome to this historic town at the intersection of traditional Anglo-Scottish and Acadian French cultures. Situated in the world's largest lobster fishing grounds, Yarmouth boasts the largest fishing fleet in Atlantic Canada. View the grand sea captain homes built in 1850 or enjoy the picturesque views and hiking trails at Cape Forchu Lightstation.


Stroll the downtown Historic District here and peruse its shops, restaurants and cafés. The native Passamaquoddy Tribe have called Moose Island home for at least 10,000 years, an area which also attracts seals, eagles, and whales. We may see Old Sow in nearby Passamaquoddy Bay, believed to be the biggest whirlpool in the Western Hemisphere.


Surrounded by Acadia National Park, simply stunning in the early fall, and perched by the sea on Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor has a special ambiance that is classic Maine. You’ll find some of the region’s best restaurants here, with a focus on seafood. Whales, seals and puffins can also be spotted along the coast.


This small coastal town situated in Penobscot Bay, like many towns in Maine, began around the lobster-fishing industry, but is now known for its boutiques, fine dining, and galleries. Art appreciators can spend time at Maine Contemporary Art and the world-famous Farnsworth Art Museum that contains works by Andrew Wyeth and other New England painters.


This buzzing city has a strong community spirit running through its art and music scene, as well as seafood that’s big on local flavours. Tour historic Old Port, known for its working waterfront, art galleries, and restaurants in converted warehouses.


Visitors are drawn to this colourful town for the beautiful beaches, restaurants, and charming shops. Artists began frequenting Provincetown a century ago and it is one of the oldest continuous art colonies in the country. Nearby Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary attracts 17 species of whale, including humpbacks and the rare North Atlantic right whales.


From its history as the oldest city in America to its near-on fanatical sports fans, the melting-pot city of Boston is a true treasure trove of Americana at its most authentic. Join one of our optional excursions to tour the city, which is also home to prestigious Harvard University and legendary sports teams such as the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics. Walk the Freedom Trail for a sense of the city's revolutionary roots, taste the region’s favourite creamy clam chowder, or enjoy the dynamic contemporary art, music and theater scenes. Spend the night in the city using MS Roald Amundsen as your base before disembarking the next day.


Hurtigruten offers unique expedition cruises to some of the most remote and pristine waters of the world. As with all expeditions; nature prevails. Weather, and ice and sea conditions, sets the final framework for all Hurtigruten’s operations. Safety and unparalleled guest experiences are at all times our top priorities. All our indicative itineraries are continuously evaluated for adaptions, whether this is due to constraints the elements unexpectedly presents – or exciting possibilities nature and wildlife offer. That is why we call it an expedition.


Roald Amundsen

Vessel Type: Expedition Ship Length: 140 metres Passenger Capacity: 530 Built: 2019 In 2019, Hurtigruten adds a brand new ship to its fleet: the MS Roald Amundsen. The state of the art vessel features new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible. MS Roald Amundsen is the first of two hybrid ships Hurtigruten will add to its fleet over the next few years, cutting emissions by sailing with electrical propulsion. Hybrid technology, combined with the advanced construction of the hull and effective use of electricity on board will reduce fuel consumption and CO2-emissions on the ships by 20 percent. The build of these two ships represents the largest single investment in the history of Hurtigruten.  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 ship will be specially constructed for voyages in polar waters and serve as a comfortable basecamp at sea – bringing adventurers from all over the world to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way. Facilities on board One of the most eye-catching exterior design features of the ships will be the two-level indoor/outdoor Observation Deck wrapped around the top of the ships’ raked bow. In a vast area behind it, you’ll find the core of the onboard experience: Amundsen Science Center.   Packed with state of the art technology and high tech gadgets such as touch screens and science equipment, the immersive edutainment area will be the place guests and staff/crew meet, mingle and create a deeper understanding for the areas they explore. The flexible venue will feature lecture spaces, a small library, and speciality areas for workshops in photography, biology, and more. The area, featuring large windows, will also be the onboard HQ for Hurtigruten’s hand picked Expedition Team.   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, 50 % will have private balconies, aft suites will feature private outdoor Jacuzzis with spectacular views.  MS Roald Amundsen will feature three restaurants inspired by Nordic and Norwegian heritage: Aune Main Dining, named after the Norwegian ship chandler and polar expedition supplier Tinus Aune. Fredheim - the ships’ informal and social meeting place – named after a 1900s hunting station on Svalbard. Lindstrøm, a speciality restaurant named after Adolf Lindstrøm, the favorite chef of the Norwegian polar heroes. Artwork on board When the world’s first hybrid powered expedition ship embarks on her maiden voyage, every piece of art on board will be handpicked by HM Queen Sonja of Norway’s art foundation - the Queen Sonja Print Award.
