Hurtigruten is offering discounted prices on selected Coastal and Explorer voyages during National Cruise Week as well agent incentives and a trade competition.
The company currently has early booking discounts of up to 25% off 2013 and 2014 voyages, but is offering an additional 5% off for bookings made between September 21-29, 2013. Agents making a booking during National Cruise Week will also receive a free limited edition branded apron.
Total savings could amount to more than £3,000 off the standard brochure price, depending on the type of cabin and itinerary booked. The 5% National Cruise Week discount could save more than £500 per person.
Hurtigruten is also running a fun agent competition to tie in with the tea party theme for National Cruise Week. Hurtigruten ships are well-known for the gastronomic delights served on-board and with that in mind agents are being asked to re-name the Hurtigruten ships with a culinary theme. Suggested ideas include MS Figmarken (Finnmarken), MS Trufflefjord (Trollfjord) and MS Richtea With (Richard With).
The three best entries will receive a £50 shopping voucher to spend as they choose.
