Cruise Network
northern norway & svalbard

The members of the cruise network are 13 cruise ports in Northern Norway, along with the North Norway Tourist Board and Scandic Hotels. All the members cooperate to achieve the goal of making the region an attractive cruise destination. Attracting cruise ships here commits us to local value creation, as well as taking care of the environment and people who live in the north.

Cruise Northern Norway & Svalbard (CNNS) is a platform for communication, marketing and expertise. The network leads and coordinates joint activities for the member companies. CNNS takes part in events and trade fairs and aims to be visible in the media. CNNS has a responsibility to the region. We have a major responsibility to contribute to a sustainable cruise industry in Northern Norway and Svalbard. The network’s sustainability strategy provides direction and requirements for cruise lines wishing to sail to this northern region.
