Hurtigruten has decided to cancel a series of expedition cruises this summer. The line said the decision was due to international travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. A sailing to the Norwegian fjords and Arctic sailing out of Dover this Sunday has been pulled at the last minute, as have two British Isles voyages which were scheduled to depart on July 4 and July 18.
Anthony Daniels, General Manager of Hurtigruten Expeditions, EMEA, said in a statement that the company understands the latest news will disappoint guests who were looking forward to explore the British Isles onboard MS Maud this July. He shared that delivering exceptional expeditions is at the very heart of Hurtigruten Expeditions and the current travel restrictions directly impacts itineraries which means the line is unable to offer the Hurtigruten Expeditions experience guests know and love.
He added that guests can rebook their expedition cruise for later in the season or receive a full refund. He also shared that the line will look forward to welcoming guests on board MS Maud in the future.
