    Hurtigruten 1893 Ambassador

    Hurtigruten 1893 Ambassador

    We should really have a thread about the 1893 Ambassador program of Hurtigruten, which as far as I understand is their frequent "sailor" program.

    Anyone with 3 continuous days or more on board any of the Hurtigruten-ships are eligible to become a member in this club.

    Correct me on my details if I'm wrong, but one thing I'm sure of, is that here on CVF there are many people who surely could be members.

      Nice commercial intiative from Hurtigruten.Last december I had 10% discount on the real price and a free visit of the boat bridge.
      Hope one day they'll pay us to take on board...What do you think?

        I actually received my silvery card for about one month ago. Can always become handy.

              A new issue of the members magazine is out, unfortunately I have just the link to the Norwegian edition: http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/ad4391bd
              Not so many "real" news, three new expeditions and a test of a "music and culture"-concept on board Nord Norge, Finnmarken and Polarlys.

                  Actually it's just poor white balancing, the card is in silver.

                      Hurtigruten, at least for UK customeres, have reduced 1893 Ambassador discount on Coastal Voyages from 10% to 5% - whilst also increasing single supplements: 50% min. & up to 75%.
                      Not a good message to loyal customers reducing benefits.

                        Same in France, and it's even worse than that. When you buy a long trip (eg Bergen/Kirkenes/Trondheim), you are now sold the trip in itself on one hand, and the board (at least the meals) separately, and the discount is only on the trip. I just booked my next trip for 2013 and I have a royal 50€ Ambassador discount! Oh well, it will pay for the train journey! Don't know if it's the same if you actually do the full round trip.

                        I also discovered that the booking platform is in Estonia, did you know that?

                          I just received an e-mail from Hurtigruten,
                          30% early booking discount for 2013.
                          Free flight connection Stockholm-Bergen-Stockholm on selected departures 2012 when booking a whole round trip.

                            It sounds like they want to woo the Swedes Tommi! And yes, Sarnia, I realised they’d outsourced the booking system to Estonia. To start with there were not surprisingly “teething troubles” but it eventually got better, and I was pleased when it became possible to check availability and book as a “distance passenger” (i.e. shorter port-to-port segments) on line in the same sort of way that I book independent travel generally… flights, hotels… these days.

                            Just before that it was becoming a real struggle to arrange such trips by phone with the London office because they were so completely geared up to selling package holidays. (From the then separate UK version of the web site and printed brochures you wouldn’t even have known port-to-port was possible if you didn’t know already!!!!!!!!!!!). Also as staff changed there seemed fewer who were really familiar with the route.

                            Another problem I used to have with package holidays was that the connecting flights were through London, whereas living where I do I prefer connections via Copenhagen…but now the Hurtigruten flight packages are mostly priced separately with the option of making own arrangements.

                            So for me nowadays, I would go through the London office to take advantage of the Ambassador scheme and any early booking discounts (or last minute sale promotions) on round trips and the Explorer cruises, but mostly I am booking on line for short trips.

                              Yesterday an envelope with a letter arrived - "Here comes the new Explorer catalog 2013/2014".
                              The thing was, they didn't put the explorer catalog in the envelope, instead I got a second "Coast of Norway"-catalog.
                              Somebody seems to be confused...
