   December 5, 2018 ,   Cruise Industry

Hurtigruten announced its 2020-2021 expedition cruise program, unveiling new ships and destinations. Highlights include: line’s first series of expedition voyages in Alaska, the largest selection of Hurtigruten's Antarctica itineraries, a makeover for MS Fram, and the inaugural season of hybrid powered eco-friendly MS Fridtjof Nansen.

Starting summer 2020, Hurtigruten begins sailing around Alaska for the first time. The company offers 8- to 18-day itineraries that visit popular highlights like Inside Passage, and more off the beaten path destinations, like the small Petersburg AK. Through Roald Amundsen's Alaskan itineraries, Hurtigruten expects to introduce the first hybrid powered cruise vessel in Alaska. The season is due to conclude with MS Roald Amundsen finishing a Northwest Passage transit out of Nome to Halifax.

Hurtigruten's 2020 season also marks the introduction of line’s 2nd hybrid battery powered ship. Following MS Roald Amundsen, MS Fridtjof Nansen is due to spend an inaugural season exploring Antarctica, Iceland, Greenland and Norway.

MS Fram cruise ship

With a total of 31 itineraries lasting between 12-23 days, 2020 will be Hurtigruten’s most expansive Antarctica season. It will also see MS Fram undergo a makeover, reemerging as a brand new expedition ship.
