Name Hurtigruten’s new ship and win a voyage along the Norwegian coast

In 2016, the Hurtigruten fleet will be joined by a new expedition ship.

Agents are invited to come up with a name for the new vessel.

The winner and a guest go on a voyage along the Norwegian coast.

The ship, which has been temporarily called ‘MS Norway Explorer’, will initially operate on Hurtigruten’s coastal route, taking the place of the MS Midnatsol, who will be heading south for a season in Antarctica.

The name must start with ‘MS’ (motor vessel) and has to be a Norwegian word or words or be an international word of Norwegian origin, for example the word “fjord”. Other ships in the fleet are named after natural phenomena, places along the Hurtigruten route or key figures in Norwegian history.

Entrants can upload their suggestion to Hurtigruten’s facebook page from now and August 10 and the winner can take the trip next year.

The prize will include flights, cabin on full-board basis and excursions.
