New Hurtigruten ship to make call in UK

The Fridtjof Nansen, Hurtigruten’s second hybrid ship after the Roald Amundsen, is to call at the UK in March 2020.

The ship was originally due to take its inaugural cruise on 1st April – but will now complete a series of pre-inaugural cruises round UK cruise – after being finished ahead of time.

The ship will complete three five-night cruises, departing from London on March 7 followed by a cruise from Liverpool (March 12) and Portsmouth (March 17).

The Fridtjof Nansen has been completing its sea trials over the past week.

“We see great demand for our expedition cruises across all markets and all destinations.
