Short description:
This cruise vessel class was purposefully designed for Norwegian coastal and Polar expedition cruises (Arctic and Antarctica itineraries).Rolls-Royce  Marine division received an USD 33 million order from the shipyard to provide the vessel's design and equipment.The new series Hurtigruten expedition vessels feature the latest environmentally friendly marine technologies. The new hybrid technology allows cruising with fully electric propulsion for up to 30 min. The main gain is the total reduction in fuel consumption and CO2-emissions. The technology, along with the effective use of electricity onboard and the optimized hull design, reduces bad emissions by nearly 20%
