The greenest ever expedition ship in the world, part research station and part luxury cruise vessel, will be launched in 2018. MS Roald Amundsen is setting sail next year destined for the seas and oceans around Antarctica and South America.

On its first cruises, it will explore the Chilean fjords, Falkland Islands, Patagonia, the Polar Circle, and the ‘White Continent’.

The vessel features state-of-the-art hybrid engine, which is powered by battery, and makes it the most environmentally friendly cruise ship ever built. Named after the Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen, the vessel is one of 2 equally green ships being built for Hurtigruten.

According to Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam, the hybrid engines would substantially reduce fuel consumption and allow for periods of completely emission free sailing.
