Fjord Line’s new cruise ferries on track

Building of the first of Fjord Line's two new cruise ferries which began in October is now well on its way.

The start of the steel work was the first milestone in the process of creating the two cruise ferries that will offer daily service between Bergen, Stavanger and Hirtshals, and between Kristiansand and Hirtshals.

Each of the two ships has a deadweight of 4,000 tons and a total length of 170 meters.

The cruise ferries will each offer 303 cabins, many of which will be suites, and will accommodate 1,500 passengers. The cargo decks will have capacity for 600 personal vehicles or a smaller number in combination with larger trucks and cargo.

They will offer restaurants, cafés, duty free shops and well-equipped facilities for courses and conferences.

“It is our definite goal to take delivery of the first ship from Bergen Group Fosen in April of 2012 and the second one in November the same year,” says Fjord Line CEO Ingvald Fardal.
