HX to Launch All-Inclusive Offering Across Entire Fleet

HX (Hurtigruten Expeditions) has announced plans to enhance its onboard guest offering. As part of a phased approach, starting with Antarctica and Galápagos expeditions departing in October 2024, the company will introduce an “all-inclusive” offering as standard across the whole fleet from November 2024, covering all destinations.

The “all-inclusive” offering covers expert-led daily expeditions, access to a series of science-led activities both onboard and out in the wild, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and professional photographs.

According to Alex Delamere-White, HX’s chief commercial officer, “Expedition cruising can be a complex product for agents to sell, given the unique destinations we visit and varying experiences by operator." The move to an all-inclusive model, he says, can "simplify life onboard and enhance our trade-friendly focus.”

For guests booking an HX expedition, starting with Antarctica and Galápagos expeditions departing in October 2024, the regular-grade cabin will now include:

  • Daily expeditions and activities such as hikes, community visits, talks and more
  • Full board dining, including breakfast, lunch and dinner with house wine and beer
  • Wine, beer, spirits and cocktails available across the day and evening
  • All-day coffee, tea and soft drinks
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Gratuities
  • Interactive science program, access to the Science Centre and activities both on and off the ships
  • Access to sauna, hot tubs, fitness room and more
  • Professional photos from the onboard photographer
  • Opportunities to engage with and support local communities and environmental initiatives through the Hurtigruten Foundation
  • Take-home expedition gear and reusable water bottle
