TDoS Designs all of Hurtigrutens new Rolls Royce expedition ships

TDoS is very pleased to been assigned as Lead Architect for these unique interior design that will reflect the waters and landscapes the ships will traffic.

Hurtigruten has named its two new expedition ships after the Norwegian polar pioneers, MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen. These will be the first ships in the world that use all-electric hybrid technology.

“These ground-breaking expedition ships will revolutionize adventure travel at sea,” said Daniel Skjeldam, CEO, Hurtigruten. “We are combining Hurtigruten’s 120-years of know-how with cutting-edge technology and design. The materials will be predominantly Norwegian, and inspired by nature with the innovative use of granite, oak, birch, wool, among other materials. All of which will be characterized by an innovative Scandinavian approach to interior design,” added Skeldjam.

The vessels will have three restaurants, with menus that reflect the destinations’ local flavours and recipies. Most cabins will have their own balcony, a high proportion will be suites.

The vessels will have major observation platforms on several decks, so that guests come as close as possible to nature and wildlife. A special pool deck will include infinity pools, Jacuzzis and bars.
