378 guests of MS Roald Amundsen are now safely on their way back to their home countries.
There have not been any confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 on any Hurtigruten ships, including MS Roald Amundsen. The ship, her guests and crew had been on an Antarctica cruise since the end of February – probably as far away as possible from any possible source of infection.
In response to the many unforeseen travel restrictions, a decision was made to redirect MS Roald Amundsen to Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands rather than to her planned port of Punta Arenas, Chile.
The final charter flight with guests from MS Roald Amundsen departed the Falkland Islands Thursday afternoon local time.
