      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 :-)

    October 2013.The staff of Hurtigruten France (which is located in a nice and quiet place in Paris XI) celebrates his 10th anniversary.

      There was a Management meeting on MS Trollfjord last week. The three keys points I can gather are: 1. A lot of staff changing ships, and a reminder that staff 'work for Hurtigruten, not for a ship'; 2. Lofoten to trial a lot of new 'expedition' experiences - whether as part of the coastal voyage or not I don't know but I suspect yes. 3. Much higher onboard sales targets. Also worth noting that water is no longer free in the restaurant - 25nok for a small bottle. Passengers and staff do not like this.

          A new "go light - travel light" option for the Hurtigruten.... (this is a must see) ....

            Finally, in all the bad news, let's direct our attention to something on the positive side...!

            Hurtigruten is going to chuck all frozen pizzas, hamburgers, and other "fast-food" overboard, and instead concentrate on reasonably priced, locally produced "ethical" food.

            I presume that this is the menu in the cafeteria that they are talking about!

              I have no doubt, that this however will fit in their plan to make more money aboard the ships. The free water during meals was also cancelled recently. In my opinion the newest offers spread wide between a regular booking (very expensive) and discount offers (partly quite attractive). Very complicated to plan a trip acrually, if you don't want to travel and experience underway that your cabin neighbour payed half the price!!

            This matter is not taken lightly by Hurtigruten. Apparantly the same persons reporting this on the ship are now being investigated by the police for them selves bringing the findings aboard the ship. Roumers has is that one of the finders had said that this was to get back at Hurtigruten, for some reason.

              Someting interesting. CEO Daniel Skjeldam and 7-8 others from the company is planning to board Hurtigruten as crewmembers to contribute in the daily work onboard. "We talked a while about doing this. The inspiration came after following the TV2 series "Truls - mission Hurtigruten", which aires on Norwegian TV these days.

              I think this is wonderful. Daniel Skjeldam seems like a great CEO, in many ways.

                This is a great idea and will help a lot. You see so much in practise! I guess they will also collect experiences as passengers.

              Amongst the ongoing conflict about port charges for the Hurtigruten ships, there are also good new menu's on board:

              No conflict: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article9365263.ece

                  Hurtigruten is backing down??: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article9488515.ece

                  No ports to call at would make it difficult to maintain the service.
                  But at the same time, a number of ports would have problems surviving without Hurtigruten.

                  Difficult problem to solve. Any proposals from CVF members???

                    It is difficult to follow this discussion, also because most links are leading to essays in Norwegian language and google translator is doing quite funny things to them. I am surprised (and was recently more often) about the sharpness in Norwegian discussions. I notice very often childish reactions. Often each side tries first to push through their own opinion. A compromise is mostly found, but not before a conflict broke out. Why can't they just discuss the possible scenarios and understand better?

                    In my opinion the state should also be involved into this discussion, because the state government sends Hurtigruten by contract to the ports. So HRG has no choice. The fees for the port should be fixed together with the state contract and shouldn't change within this period. It is ridiculous that the local governments take money for a service they receive and which is ordered and supported by the state government.

                    Agree, Carina. Well spoken, Ralf!

                  All this with the Hurtigruten and the ports along the Norwegian coast is a strange thing.
                  I know nothing more than what the harbour authorities here say, and they say that Hurtigruten has got unrestricted access into their books of economy and accounts...., AND that the port fees has been unchanged since year 2005. (How many other fees in our world has been unchanged since 2005?) What does Hurtigruten want??
                  Because they lost their case with one harbour, they shouldn't take it out on all of the remainding 33 ports.

                  Other than that, I agree with you Ralf, and you have a very good point in your last three lines :-)

                    Here are some articles from various sites:

                    Worried about Hurtigruten, as stated in Fosna-Folket: http://www.fosna-folket.no/samferdse...cle9565707.ece

                    The article talks about Norwegian Seaman's Assosciation voicing their concern about a planned increase in Governmental fees/taxes for having Norwegian seamen on board.

                    The next article, are nature-highlights from the "minute for Minute" program a few years ago... a wonderful recapture: http://tv.nrk.no/serie/ut-i-naturen/...511/30-08-2011

                      Hurtigruten is featured in the Travel Show on BBC World News this week, although not for long and not very factual: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0232chl

                        That is what Hurtigruten is testing out: http://www.dagbladet.no/2014/07/31/t...jord/34564720/
