Coastal Cruise Liner To Maintain Service

The Norwegian coastal cruise liners "Hurtigruten" will maintain its present schedule, and will continue to call daily at all its 34 ports along the coast between Bergen and Kirkenes.

This is clear after the shipping line and the Department of Transport have enetered into a new agreement on the purchase of transport services along the coast.

The new agreement covers a period of eight years, and will mean that "Hurtigruten" will receive an average of NOK 640 million a year to maintain the service.

The coastal steamers have called at these ports for generations and is the main "highway" for people at the many towns and isolated coastal communities, in particular in the wintertime.

The cruise liners have also become very popular with tourists from around the world, both in summer and winter.
