In fact, the Norwegian company is expected to start operations through August and September.

With the safety and well-being of our guests and crew as our number one priority, the response to our successful return to sailing last month has been extremely positive from both the local communities, our guests and crew. As travel restrictions are lifted, we are now entering the next phase of our step by step return to full operation. Hurtigruten CEO Daniel Skjeldam said.

Facing the coronavirus challenges and in order to prevent a possible infection, there will be no more than 350 passengers during each trip. Specifically, the cruise vessels will operate with a 65% of their maximum capacity.

Hurtigruten follows all the safety guidelines recommended by the Norwegian government and has implemented strict training measures, health and safety policies and protocols including reducing capacity on all sailings to around 30 per cent to make social distancing easier.

...the cruise operator said in a release.

What is more, Hurtigruten marks the return of Arctic expedition cruising, as battery-hybrid powered MS Roald Amundsen and MS Spitsbergen will start in mid-July and offer 6 to 15 day voyages on the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard.

Concluding, the company will launch a series of exclusive British Isles itineraries on the world’s first battery hybrid powered cruise ship the MS Roald Amundsen with several sailings during September.
