Free airfare deal sweetens Holland America's Eurodam inaugural sailing in northern Europe

Holland America is offering a free-airfare special on the Inaugural Voyage of the ms Eurodam, the line's new Signature-class ship. The cruise departs Copenhagen for the Norwegian fjords and Scotland on July 5, 2008, with port stops in Alesund, Vik, Flam, and Stavanger, Norway, as well as three stops in the UK before returning to Copenhagen.

If you act quickly, you can land an inside stateroom on the 10-day cruise -- including free roundtrip airfare from five U.S. midwest and eastern gateway cities -- for fares starting at $2,299 per person in double occupancy. Oceanview cabins are going for $2,599 per person and up, while verandahs are starting as low as $2,899 per passenger.

The roundtrip airfare deal to Copenhagen is good from Chicago, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. Cruise-only fares are only marginally ($100-$300) lower, if you've priced summer flights to Europe lately. The special fares also include fuel supplements.

To book or for more information, call Holland America at 877/724-5425 or a travel agent and request promo code RX.
