    OK, thanks. Sounds weird to me anyway. Hurtigruten isn't exactly Estonia.

      This is how Hurtigruten will try saving a 100 million NOK in the near future... (article in Norwegian but we all know about Google translator, right?)....

        In addition to previous post about an hour ago, it seems like Hurtigruten is doing good with a new man at the helm:

        http://www.nrk.no/nordnytt/hurtigrut...jor-1.11342673
        Hurtigruten oppn√ƒ¬•r et resultat f√ƒ¬łr skatt p√ƒ¬• 192 millioner kroner i tredje kvartal 2013. Det er 111 millioner kroner bedre enn ifjor.

            Hurtigruten cancels all calls to Mehamn port for the next 8 months, as the dock is deemed unsafe for the big ships to use.

              Hurtigruten is refusing to pay port charges in many ports, and are met with threats of not being permitted to dock to port captains taking arrest in the ships if they do not pay...

                I've noticed this also in comments in the German forum, however the history of this struggle in not clear to me.
                Is it because of hugely increasing charges?
                Isn't Hurtigruten obliged to use the ports because of their Post and Cargo Contract by the government?
                And if so, may the local authorities claim harbour charges?

                  I thought this was the case only in Geiranger, where HR has refused to pay charges because they don't make use of the harbour facilities. They won a case in the court about this.
                  Is this a problem elsewhere?

                    There is a disagreement betwen Hurtigruten and Norwegian harbours. Much money is involved, and HRG will not pay the costs. It's not only Geiranger.
                    Striden mellom Hurtigruten og havnene tilspisser seg. Samtidig som rederiet nekter √ƒ¬• betale avgifter, truer havnene med √ƒ¬• √ƒ¬łke de samme avgiftene.

                          Hurtigruten back on TV tonight: http://www.tv2.no/play/underholdning...er-794731.html
                          At least in Norway.

                            To calm our foreign audience, who might not catch this on web-tv, down a notch or two..., I don't think this is some kind of a hurtigruten program.
                            It's more like Mr. Truls here useing a hurtigrute to get his way around in coastal Norway to do things he have never done before, and to meet people somewhat away from the usual hurtigrute track.
                            But hey..., it's going to be a great series anyway, it's going to be some hurtigrute glimps, and a lot of Norwegia humor :-) :-)

                                Mr. Truls, as I called him, Truls Svendsen is his full name. The trip on hurtigruten was a gift from his buddies (also tv personalities in Norway) for his 40th birthday.
                                Truls is a very popular program host here, as he dare to be 150% himself, and we like that.
                                A few years back he made a tv program called E-6, where he and a camera crew drove a mobile home car from Halden to Kirkenes..., all the way along the road E-6. This was also among the most popular in Norway at that time.
                                The reason why Truls does so many different things in the hurtigrute series he is a host for now, is that his buddies say he begin to look fat, he only like to do things he always have done and so are not to eager to try new things. His buddies wanted to challenge that. It all makes great tv :-)
