These cruise perks are sure to get the attention of clients interested in booking Arctic, Mediterranean or Pacific Northwest voyages.
Early Bird Discounts
Poseidon Expeditions has announced early bird savings of $1,435 to $2,255 pp on three 2018 voyages to the North Pole. The roundtrip voyage from Murmansk, Russia to the geographic North Pole takes place on board the nuclear-powered icebreaker 50 Years of Victory, and stops in the rarely visited Russian Arctic Archipelago of Franz Josef Land, where passengers explore this remote wilderness, home to Arctic wildlife, including polar bears and the rare ivory gull. Activities throughout the journey focus on discovery, history and wildlife, and include a complimentary flightseeing tour aboard the icebreaker’s onboard helicopter.
Early booking rates are available for 13-day departures July 8-20, July 19-31 and July 30 to Aug. 11, 2018. Rates start at $27,260 pp dbl. To qualify for the early booking promotions, guests must book by July 31, 2017. Rates include accommodations, all meals while at sea, one pre-cruise hotel night, and group transfers, plus all scheduled landings/excursions, expert-led discussions throughout the voyage, welcome and farewell beverages, and medical insurance covering the risks of evacuation and repatriation.
