The Norwegian cruise line Hurtigruten announced it will offer roundtrips from homeport Dover UK in the winter 2021-2022 season - for the first time in company's 126-year history.

Hurtigruten revealed a series of 12-day ‘Norway Expedition’ cruises between October 2021-March 2022, departing out of Dover and visiting various cruise ports along the coast of Norway.

The sailings will be offered onboard Maud (currently cruising as MS Trollfjord), which is one of 3 Hurtigruten ships that will soon be converted into hybrid-powered expedition vessels.

Passengers will be able to participate in complimentary activities each day, allowing them to explore the history, culture and wildlife of the destinations visited.

Hurtigruten will increase the number of its expedition team members sailing onboard the cruise ship in order to provide lectures and additional information.
