Hurtigruten has announced three offers – ‘Spring Fling,’ ‘Unprecedented Savings,’ and ‘Half Off Companion Fare’ – for a diverse selection of voyages taking place in 2011, including itineraries in Norway, Greenland and Europe.  Aside from the classic six-, seven- and 12-day itineraries along the Norwegian coast, called “the world’s most beautiful voyage” by Lonely Planet, passengers receive savings on “Glaciers & Icebergs,” a Disko Bay expedition along Greenland’s west coast, and “Pearls of the Baltic Sea,” which visits half a dozen ports including Copenhagen and St. Petersburg.  Offers are valid for new retail bookings on select departures and cannot be combined with other discounts except for the repeater discount, which gives those who have travelled onboard Hurtigruten within the last three years savings of up to 10% on a subsequent voyage.  Prices are per person, in $US, double; higher rates are for suites.

· The Spring Fling deal offers savings of up to 30% – with fares discounted as much as $1,370 – on six, seven or 12-day Norwegian Coastal Voyages departing on applicable sail dates in April or May that are booked by April 30.  Special prices range from $1,178 to $3,198.

· The Unprecedented Savings offer allows travellers who book by April 30 to enjoy significant savings – up to $2,984 – on cabins or suites when they let Hurtigruten assign specific cabin choice at check-in on the day of departure; valid on the Greenland “Glaciers and Icebergs” itinerary, with special fares ranging from $5,646 to $7,339, and the European “Pearls of the Baltic” voyage, with rates from $2,034 to $3,325.

· With the Half-Off Companion Fare deal, passengers receive 50% off a second fare for the six-, seven- or 12-day Norwegian Coastal Voyages when the first is purchased for the regular price.  Offer valid on select departures between May 1 and November 6, 2011, when booked by May 31; 50% companion fares range from $525 to $2,639.
