Review of MS Richard With

Launched in 1993, ms Richard With is one of the six “contemporary” Hurtigruten ships, together with Kong Harald, Nordlys, Nordkapp, Nordnorge and Polarlys. Together with her fleet mates, Richard With serves Hurtigruten’s Norwegian Coastal Voyages (NCV) program for cruise ferry travel by passenger-cargo ships.

History - construction and ownership

The shipowner Hurtigruten is a Norwegian passenger shipping company specializing in cruise and ferry services. The "Norwegian Coastal Express Route" (Bergen-Kirkenes) is a cargo-passenger ferry service along Norway's western and northern coast. Hurtigruten's cruise ferries sail nearly the entire length of Norway and complete this roundtrip itinerary in 11 days. The route also includes Lofoten Islands and Vesteralen Islands.

MS Richard With cruise ship

The 11,205-ton, 691-passenger cruise ship ms Richard With was named after Captain Richard With, the founder of Hurtigruten. In the distant 1893, he established the "Norwegian Coastal Express" company, which services quickly changed forever the life of Norwegians. Richard With cruise ship was created 100 years after the Captain's first Hurtigruten voyage. The ship was delivered in 1993, a century after Hurtigruten’s founder finished his first voyage.

Cruise itinerary program

MS Richard With itinerary program is based on Norwegian Coastal Voyages. Ship's routes include the beautiful Norwegian's fjords. Richard With is mostly used as a ferry for both passengers and cars. However, some guests stay on board for round-trip 12-day itineraries out of Bergen and Kirkenes.

MS Richard With wiki

The ship is named after Captain Richard Bernhard With (1846-1930), Hurtigruten company's founder, who in 1893 established the "Norwegian Coastal Express" ferry service along Norway's coast. The vessel was delivered in 1993 - exactly a hundred years after Captain Richard With completed his first Hurtigruten voyage. The liner has a huge onboard art collection by Norwegian authors (Harr family).

Richard With cruises along Norway’s coast. Most guests use the vessel as transportation (cars and passengers). Departing from homeport Bergen, the ship cruises roundtrip to homeport Kirkenes (Arctic outpost near the Russia-Norway border). Norwegian cruise ferry passengers can opt for 5-11 nights stays, with the full 12-day crossing from Bergen to Kirkenes, then going back southbound. In most ports of call are offered Hurtigruten-sponsored excursions and tours. The traditional onboard (top-deck) ceremony "Crossing the Arctic Circle” welcomes newcomers. On Hurtigruten Norwegian coastal voyages, the company offers fly-cruise package deals. Bookings are protected with ATOL Certificate. ATOL stands for "Air Travel Organisers' Licensing" (Civil Aviation Authority, UK).

During drydock 2018 refurbishment, the vessel also underwent major technical improvements, including new central air-conditioning system and shore power capabilities. The ship was retrofitted with big-capacity batteries and new LNG engines, replacing the old marine diesel powerplant.
