A record number of cruise passengers could visit Norway this year.

Increased cruise traffic to Norwegian destinations are predicted for this year. The number of arrivals booked at Norwegian harbors in 2011 show a 15 percent increase, compared with last year.

This would mean well over 2 million visiting passengers — and a new record, according to Nationen.

From 2009 to 2010, the increase in cruise traffic to Norway was 6 percent, NRK reports.
