Great news, this will be operational in 2026, bookings from 2024!
A new electric ferry with a huge capacity for people and cargo.
I think there will be a huge demand.

Here’s a link;

Sounds good. Bergman and Stavanger are very interesting places. I'd love to go back.

I typed Bergen but obviously my phone didn't believe me and autocorrected.

Good, I love Norway and was sorry when the ferries stopped.

Fantastic news. My Norwegian cousin will be delighted.

We travelled by that route several times, the last in 1991. We're hoping that we'll be fit enough to do it when the new ship comes into service. Our holidays in Scandinavia were fantastic and we made it to North Cape 2 or 3 times. Good news indeed, and it should be good for businesses here if it brings the Norwegian tourists back here to the north east.

I travelled Newcastle to Stavanger in 1967 on a school skiing trip. I think it will be popular but probably expensive. The north sea ferry from Rosyth in Scotland sadly didnt last long - not sure where that went though.
