“There is growing demand in the exploration travel industry from consumers, specifically in the U.S. and Canada,” noted Tussey-Haverly. 

Hurtigruten has three hybrid electric–powered expedition ships set to debut by 2021, and a number of newly introduced itineraries including Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, and more. The Roald Amundsen is set to undergo a naming ceremony in Antarctica – another cruise industry first, according to Hurtigruten – after which it will spend its inaugural season sailing expedition cruises along the Norwegian coast, to Svalbard and Greenland, along with a Northwest Passage route and a season of Antarctica itineraries.
