Online, agents can watch a video tutorial, download the user guide, check out the site's FAQs and get 24/7 customer support. Agents can put together itineraries by first choosing a package of six-, seven- or 12-night Norwegian Coastal Voyage sailings, or one of Hurtigruten’s Explorer sailings to Antarctica, Greenland or the Arctic's Spitsbergen.

Customized Norwegian Coastal Voyage sailings can also be created for specific port-to-port itineraries. Agents who choose a departure date on the site will open a window showing the ship, available cabins/suites and pricing. Then, agents can select the cabin or suite category/price before loading a new page  requesting client information, special request, if air is required and specific cabin/suite choice.

Optional excursions can be selected, after which the final booking information must be reviewed including address, contact info, agency info and a detail box showing all components of the trip and their costs. A confirmation will then load and can be printed out. Agents can also look up and adjuts prior bookings.
