Hurtigruten Upgrades Website for Consumers, Agents

Hurtigruten has unveiled an upgraded website that caters to consumers and travel agents by offering itinerary details, pricing information and helpful hints as well as allowing visitors to pinpoint interests faster. The website,, offers homepage hyperlinks that guide users to all the offered destinations, cruise packages, price ranges and savings opportunities, interactive tours of their fleet of modern cruise ships, and videos depicting many of their cruise destinations.

The homepage also links to a brochure request section; a "Find a Travel Agent" search engine; current press releases; travel insurance information; a real-time map with up to the minute ship positions; ship web cams; and an offer to sign up for E-newsletters.

The site organizes cruises by destination— Norway, Greenland, Spitsbergen, Europe and Antarctica— and presents all of the details of any specific cruise: day-to-day itinerary, optional excursions, pricing and departure dates, historical information and travel tips, and any early-booking offers or other savings programs. An excursions link, pertinent to each itinerary, offers details on both the included excursions and sightseeing as well as a host of optional forays.
