Hurtigruten Press statement: Best Specialist Cruise Company!

Hurtigruten has just released a press statement:

For the third year in a row, Hurtigruten was voted "Best Specialist Cruise Company" in the prestigious Globe Travel Awards in the UK.

The recognition is given by a total of 6,000 travel agents in the UK, and is therefore very prestigeous. Hurtigruten won against tough competitors such as Star Clippers, Viking River Cruises and Voyages of Discovery.

- This is a prestigious award in a very important market for Hurtigruten. It is definitely a recognition for Hurtigruten's product. The fact that we win for the third year in a row says a lot about the efforts made over time, says Trond Øverås, Global Product and Marketing Director of Hurtigruten.

The ranking is carried out by the British travel magazine Travel Weekly in partnership with media group Associated Newspapers, and the prize was handed out in London on the 17th of January 2010.

Øverås think the category "Best specialist cruise company" suits Hurtigruten well. - We are a niche operator in comparison with the major cruise companies. Our competitive advantage is our unique destinations, be it along the Norwegian coast, on Svalbard, in Antarctica or Greenland, he says.
