The vessel was scheduled for delivery in July 2018. However, due to financial problems, Kleven Shipyard (Ulsteinvik Norway) delayed the delivery to Hurtigruten, re-scheduling the inaugural cruise for May 3, 2019 (leaving from Lisbon Portugal). Hurtigruten's official statement was issued on February 26, 2018.
On May 24, 2018, Hurtigruten announced that Fridtjof Nansen's launch will be also affected (pushed back) due to Roald Amundsen's delayed launch and "the complexity of the construction". Fridtjof Nansen's Antarctica cruise schedule (2019-2020) was added to MS Midnatsol.
All booked customers received full refunds (cruise and reimbursements for cancelled flights) plus booking discounts on alternative Hurtigruten expedition cruise itineraries.
