May 2018 Hurtigruten has contracted the Norwegian Fosen Yard for comprehensive upgrades of two of its ships, the Richard With and the Nordlys.The Richard With goes to the yard in November 2018. The work will include renovations of all cabins, both for passengers and crew. All public areas will be refurbished as well. According to a prepared statement this means new restaurants, bars, lounges and outdoor hot tubs.Both ships will continue to serve in Hurtigrutenís coastal service in Norway. In addition, both ships and at least five others of its existing ships are slated to be rebuilt for hybrid powerplants running engines on LNG combined with batteries.

6.1.2009: Hurtigruten's Richard With ran aground in Trondheim
Richard With, which is employed on the Norwegian Coastal Express service of Hurtigruten ASA, ran aground at the port of Trondheim on the west coast of Norway at 0757 this morning, the company said. The ship suffered propeller damage and took on board water through a leak in a seal and the 153 passengers on board have been evacuated.
The vessel is now sitting on a mudbank and divers have been sent to investigate damage to the hull.
By mid-morning, no damage to the hull had been detected, but it is expected that the ship will have to enter dry dock for repairs and inspection.
