Norwegian Coast Service To Be Revised – Symphony of the Seas Delivered – Voyage of the Week: One Ocean’s RCGS Resolute

The Cruise Examiner for 4th April 2018

Havila coastal ships for Norway

Havila Shipping will build four new coastal ships for the Norwegian coast run, to enter service starting in 2021

The Norwegian Government has announced that effective January 2021 it will reorganise its subsidised coastal voyages by dividing contracts between two operators, the exisiting company, Hurtgruten, and newcomer Havila, who will build four new ships, with dimensions of 410 x 66 feet. Elsewhere, the world’s largest cruise ship, the 228,081-ton Symphony of the Seas, left Malaga on a sampler voyage on Saturday before setting out on her maiden voyage from Barcelona this Friday. Finally, for our special voyage this week we have chosen One Ocean Expeditions’ newest addition, the RCGS Resolute, which has been chartered by UK-based Exodus Travels for a special Antarctica voyage in November.
