Hurtigruten Celebrates Singles Day with More Cruises Without a Single Supplement

Book Antarctica, Galápagos, Iceland, Norway, and South American cruises between 
November 10-14 with no single traveler supplement

Seattle, WA (November 9, 2021) – Hurtigruten, the world leader in exploration travel, is celebrating Singles Day this year by offering even more cruises designed specifically for solo travelers. From November 10 to 14, single guests can book select cruises with either Hurtigruten Expeditions or Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express without the single supplement to destinations such as Antarctica, Central America, the Galápagos, Iceland, Norway, and South America.

Solo travelers looking to scratch off a bucket list trip before the end of the year or looking ahead to a long-anticipated 2022 vacation, can now book select cruises without any single supplement fees. Adventurous guests can take advantage of this offer to explore historic cities in Europe; see penguins, seals, and whales during an 18-day cruise to Antarctica; experience the Northern Lights and learn all about this spectacular phenomenon; follow in Charles Darwin’s footsteps exploring the Galápagos; travel along the Norwegian coast like a local; or experience the highlights of South America during an 18-day cruise from Valparaiso in Chile to Costa Rica.

“Research has shown us that 45% of solo travelers travel to discover new cultures, and our cruises offer exactly that – a chance to truly learn about the locals, wildlife, and the ecosystems of the destination. Hurtigruten sails to some of the most unique and beautiful destinations in the world, including the Galápagos, Antarctica, and Norway. These are bucket list destinations for most travelers, and also where a lot of single travelers go. Our cruises are designed to provide guests the opportunity to explore and immerse themselves in the places they visit,” said Storm Tussey-Haverly, Interim President, Hurtigruten Americas

Hurtigruten Expeditions’ cruise ships feature state-of-the-art science centers, an onboard science program that guests are encouraged to participate in, and lectures, all to enable travelers to develop a deeper understanding of the destinations and regions they visit. Guests can also participate in hands-on experiences, from tracking whales to counting penguins to cleaning beaches along the ships’ route, which offer one-of-a-kind learning opportunities.

Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express enables travelers to get to know Norway and its coastline in a unique, non-touristy way. The scenic route, often described as “the most beautiful journey in the world”, takes guests to charming coastal towns and mesmerizing fjords. Coastal cruises also offer a variety of activities – from breathtaking hikes, to boat tours and horseback riding, offering something for everyone.

This solo traveler offer is available on select cruises to the Galapagos, Europe, Antarctica, Central America, Iceland, North America, Norway, and South America.
