Save 50 percent on companion fare for Hurtigruten world cruise

Hurtigruten is offering half off a companion fare when you book its fall 2008 Arctic-to-Antarctic World Cruise Voyage by the end of this month (March 31, 2008).

This is its second annual north-south world cruise, a 66-night voyage on the MS Fram -- the newest expedition ship in the Hurtigruten fleet -- that you'll find on no other line. The cruise starts in September 2008 and features 44 port calls in 17 countries, embarking from Iceland and ending in Argentina after visiting Antarctica.

The offer also applies to booking selected segments of the cruise from Rejkavik and New York. Both offers apply to new bookings only.

To be sure, the entire 66-night cruise is expensive, with cabins starting at around $14,000 per person, double occupancy for an inside cabin. But the other way to look at it is that you could save $7,000 for your companion by booking in the next two weeks. That's a bit over $300 per day for two people on what could be the most memorable cruise of your life.

For more information or bookings, visit the Hurtigruten website or call 866/257-6104 or a travel agent.
