Everyone is Talking About Hurtigruten
Hurtigruten has had a helluva run in the news over the past month. First, we had a brief mention about our $350 off per person deal for our 12-day Norwegian Coastal Voyages in the Washington Post on Jan. 14th.
Then, we just exploded on the scene with Sheila Norman-Culp's AP (Associated Press) article, "The Anti-Cruise: No Bingo, No Karaoke, Just Fjords." who sailed aboard Hurtigruten's Vesteralen in November. This article is still getting pick up!
Next, journalist Kari Budnarchuk sailed onboard the MS Nordkapp for the Ice Breakers theme voyage in October and published "Elbow Room" in the Boston Globe on Jan 30th!
Due to all this popularity, Hurtigruten was asked to be featured on the BBC/NPR nationally syndicated radio show - The World, featuring a live interview with MS Vesteralen's Tour Director Anna Kristine Tvedt directly from the ship.
Then, the readers of Conde Nast Traveler ranked Hurtigruten's Nordnorge among the World's Best Small Ships in their February, 2011 issue.
And finally, to top it all off, Hurtigruten's Climate Voyage was featured in the last Sunday Travel section of the New York Times by Elaine Glusac.
Hurtigruten is extremely proud and thankful for all of the wonderful press coverage. Talk about a windfall!
