About the blog

This blog is operated by the Hurtigruten web team. The blog will help us stay focused and on track to reach our goals. The Hurtigruten web team blog is the common ground for Hurtigrutens web team. It is a place where we can exchange ideas, discuss and share best practices with each other and the rest of the Hurtigruten organization.

What is a blog?

The term webblog derives from “logbook” which is a well-know term at Hurtigruten.

ship’s log contains many other types of information, and is a record of operational data relating to a ship  such as weather conditions, times of routine events and significant incidents, crew complement or what ports were docked at and when. It is essential to traditional navigation, and must be filled in at least daily.

About Hurtigruten

Hurtigruten traces its origins more than one hundred years back; it was established in 1893 by government contract to improve communications along Norway’s long, jagged coastline. Nowadays, it is seen as one of the only ways to cruise Norway throughout the year. All Hurtigruten ships have a ship log where the crew records distances travelled, significant events on board  and to compliment the crew.

Now the Hurtigruten web team also has a log.

There are no limitations to what we can blog about except for things that can alter the public share value.

NB! This blog is managed by Steven Macdonald+.

    I’m writing a paper on Hurtigruten, and I wonder who you consider your main competitors in the different product areas? Especially which cruise lines you see as the greatest threat?
