The Hurtigruten Ship Fleet

Hurtigruten has 12 ships operating the Norway coastal voyages and 2 expedition ships. Varying in size, they each have their own unique character, but all are informal and have a relaxed atmosphere and excellent service on board.

MS Richard With (2016)

MS Kong Harald (2016)

MS Vesteralen (2016)

Built in 1983 this ship is smaller and more intimate than the newer ships and is favoured by travellers who enjoy a traditional ‘working ship’ experience.

MS Lofoten (2016)

These small and elegant traditional ships are steeped in heritage and character and are firm favourites for many of our repeat travellers.

Expedition Ships

MS Fram

A new ship for 2007, MS Fram was built specifically to negotiate the icy waters of the Arctic and Antarctic. With just 318 guests, Fram is ideal for sharing adventures with like-minded travellers. With excellent public space and modern facilities, she provides a luxury cruise holiday environment even in the most remote destinations.

MS Spitsbergen

Named after the archipelago, the MS Spitsbergen joins the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016 and is equipped for sailings in polar waters. The ship carries 202 passengers as well as an Expedition team.
