The Itinerary Planner will help cruise lines plan future itineraries in destinations such as Kristiansand in Norway
Cruise Baltic and Cruise Norway have launched a new Itinerary Planner tool to make it easier for cruise lines to check availability at ports and plan calls and shore excursions in Norway and Baltic Sea region.
Building on Cruise Norway’s Cruise Calendar, the new Itinerary Planner allows cruise lines to create a draft of the preferred itinerary and check the availability of their chosen ports. Most ports in the Baltic Sea region and Norway have already signed up to the tool, which will enable cruise operators to plan future cruises and adapt itineraries if necessary.
“Due to the pandemic, the tool is more important than ever,” said Inge Tangerås, managing director of Cruise Norway. “We all need to be agile in our planning, and the cruise lines must be able to change their itineraries at short notice to comply with laws and restrictions. With the Itinerary Planner, cruise lines can easily check the availability during their selected periods and quickly get an overview of how they can adjust their itineraries.”
The Itinerary Planner will also help to prevent congestion in ports.
“The collaboration between Cruise Baltic and Cruise Norway is unique and innovative,” said Claus Bødker, director of Cruise Baltic. “The fact that two cruise associations are joining forces to create a common product that provides greater accessibility to the region is really a strength. Not only does it benefit the cruise lines with a much easier way to plan itineraries, but it also proves that together we can achieve more.”
