Havila’s New Environmentally Friendly Ships


Havila Kystruten is The Norwegian Coastal Cruise Specialist, with an extensive maritime experience. With new and environmentally friendly ships, the company will proudly and with good conscience show the world’s most beautiful coast to its guests. The captain and crew on our ships have unique experience and know every inch of the spectacular coastline.


In 2021, the ‘Havila Capella’, ‘Havila Castor’, ‘Havila Polaris’ and ‘Havila Pollux’ will be ready to deliver unforgettable and comfortable voyages. All the ships are identical: 122.7 metres long, 22 metres wide and able to carry 640 passengers. Powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas) and battery, they will be the most environmentally friendly coastal cruise ships in service.


Havila has been successful in fishing, transport and offshore business, and the company understands the importance of taking care of the environment. The environment is a big part of the company’s history and its future. Hence, all coastal cruise ships are built to meet the highest technological and environmental standards. The objective is to travel silently and emission free. The guests, the wildlife and the people living along the coast will then appreciate the voyages even more.
