Travel Partner Quarterly News

March 15, 2019

Dear Hurtigruten Partner,

Allow me to introduce myself! In late March, I came on board as Hurtigruten’s President for the Americas. I was drawn to Hurtigruten’s focus on the customer, their passion for building an amazing experience, a dedication to sustainable travel and of course, the adventure included in each expedition cruise. I’m passionate about exploring the great outdoors, and spend much of my down time hiking, climbing, and skiing in the Pacific Northwest. I’m also sincere in my quest to ensure the right people are matched with the right experience; and that’s where you come in! Being new to Hurtigruten, and the expedition cruise industry, I’m counting on you, our trusted travel advisor community, to help me learn more about our guests.

We’ve had a busy few months, and I wanted to bring your attention to some recent updates. First, you may already know that we’re currently offering free flights on select expeditions to Antarctica! Through the end of May, your clients can choose between three unique itineraries—and five departure dates among them—all of which spend ample time exploring the Great White Continent. And, each of the itineraries that are part of this incredible offer are aboard MS Roald Amundsen, the world’s first hybrid electric-powered expedition ship.

We’re also happy to announce our flash sale: In honor of May 17, Norway’s Constitution Day, we’re currently offering 50% off companion fares for our 12-day, 7-day, or 6-day cruises along Norway’s coast! With departure dates from June 1 – December 31, 2019, your clients can choose to enjoy long leisurely days under the warm glow of the midnight sun in the summer, or watch for the exquisite northern lights in the winter. Be sure to book your clients soon, as this offer expires May 22, 2019.

Finally, our webinar series continues! On Wednesday, May 22, we’ll be chatting all about our expedition cruises that travel in and around Greenland. Click here to register today.

I’m really looking forward to working with all of you and serving our guests. If we can answer any questions for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We appreciate your support and look forward to welcoming your clients on board!
