Roald Amundsen

Named after the Norwegian polar explorer, Roald Amundsen who was the first person to reach the South Pole. Like its namesake, the MS Roald Amundson is a pioneer in Polar expedition voyages. The ship is one of the first to feature a hybrid propulsion system that will not only reduce its fuel consumption but will show that large hybrid ships are possible.
