|September 2020||Other Incidents|
In early September 2020, Tom Cruise (1962-born American actor and producer) rented the Fridtjof Nansen ship in order to prevent any more filming delays to his "Mission Impossible 7" movie production. The movie (being filmed in several European locations) faced production stoppages due to the ongoing Coronavirus-related travel restrictions.
Reportedly, Tom Cruise paid ~GBP 0,5 million (~USD 665 M / EUR 560 M) to rent the Hurtigruten vessel through the end of September 2020. The ship (chartered as a floating hotel for the film's production crew) also sheltered 200+ local staff plus 200+ international personnel.
