MS Roald Amundsen, the world’s first hybrid electric-powered expedition ship, has been named in Chiriguano Bay on Brabant Island, Antarctica. “We could not think of a better location than Antarctica to name MS Roald Amundsen,” Daniel Skjeldam, chief executive officer of Hurtigruten, commented, adding that the ship is the symbol of a new era in the cruise industry. MS Roald Amundsen is one of three 15,000-ton hybrid-powered vessels ordered by Norwegian cruise operator Hurtigruten.
