Hurtigruten has recently launched a series of adventurous new itineraries to explore the beauty and nature of the British Isles and Iceland from 2022. Departures are from Liverpool and Portsmouth aboard state-of-the-art hybrid powered ship, the MS Fridtjof Nansen.
With sailings set to take place from May 7 next year, the three new sailings will join Dover and Glasgow departures in offering guests the chance to experience expedition sailings closer to home. Anthony Daniels, General Manager UK and EMEA, Hurtigruten, said in a statement that the company is delighted to increase support for the U.K. cruise industry with the introduction of new expedition cruises departing from Liverpool and Portsmouth.
He mentioned that MS Fridtjof Nansen is now joining MS Maud and MS Spitsbergen, as Hurtigruten ships homeporting in Dover and Glasgow respectively, in 2021, 2022 and 2023. He shared a very encouraging booking trend since the government’s release of the roadmap out of lockdown has been notice and said that the cruise line is looking forward to welcoming passengers on board, once it is safe to do so.
