PS> Hurtigruten has two newbuilt and three converted Hybrid (Battery-Diesel) Polar Expedition ships, but not with as high ARC rating,

“Polar Class” or “ice class”, not “ARC rating” :wink:

ice protection classification Arc7, which means that the ship can sail in ice of a thickness of up to 1.7 metres,

Arc7 is one of RMRS’s numerous ice class notations (Ice1…3, Arc4…9, Icebreaker6…9). I doubt the Norwegian ships you mentioned are built to Russian class.

I did not imply that Hurtigruten use Russian Classification Society for their ships, only comparing to the ARC class for comparison of ice capabilities.
