Hurtigruten to return all ships to Norwegian coastal sailings

Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express plans to reinstate all seven ships on the Bergen - Kirkenes route in July.

It says booking levels are almost 50% higher than pre-pandemic levels, and Hurtigruten Group has reported record demand for 2022 small-ship experiences.

By July it will once again operate all seven ships along the rugged Norwegian coastline.

"As vaccines are being rolled out and travel restrictions are lifted, we are seeing a huge pent up demand and strong booking trends across all markets. When international travel resumes, we will be ready to welcome our guests on board again, Group CEO Daniel Skjeldam said.

This summer, Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express will be the only company to offer voyages along the coast.

"Operating safely throughout the pandemic also gives us unparalleled experience as we now are getting ready to welcome international guests, Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express Hedda Felin said.

Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express is part of Hurtigruten Group, which also includes Hurtigruten's expedition cruise line.
