Welcome to our winter Cruise Brochure 2012-2013! Cruising has become one of the most significant phenomena of our times. It’s something that intrigues most people. Every year, more and more people discover the inclusive pleasures of a cruise holiday. More singles, families, couples, honeymooners, second honeymooners and groups of friends sail away on the holiday of their lives. In this brochure we have some of the most popular itineraries and ideas to help you make the most of your time at sea. With a choice from luxury yachts to super liners, we have something for you, however you choose to explore.

bON VOYAGE!

A question that is often asked is, “What can I do on a ship”? The short answer is “Lots”! You can see a show, snooze lazily by the pool, swim, jog, shop, learn, dine indoors or out, casual or elegant. Explore a port or stay onboard. Meet new friends. Keep fit. Onboard facilities include babysitting, ballroom dancing, duty free shopping, movies, supervised children activities. Most ships are very modern and have internet too so you can stay connected!

Cruising is fabulous value for money. It’s a great way to celebrate a special event and is a safe travel experience. One of the best aspects of cruising is in knowing that even though you are going to visit different cities, once you have unpacked, you don’t need to pack until your last day. Remember, it’s up to you if you wish to get off a ship during a port docking. You might want to get off at every opportunity or instead choose to relax and enjoy the ships onboard facilities. There is a cruise that can satisfy everyone – families, singles, couples, groups, young and young at heart, sports lovers and more. Few other holiday experiences can make that claim.


Why cruise?

How to Book?

Did you know that according to a research by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), cruises have the highest percentage of satisfied customers than any other holiday experience! There are plenty of holiday options available, but few can match the value of a cruise holiday. Consider, for one up-front price you get your stateroom, unique dining and entertainment on the ship, plus you are comfortably transported to a myriad of fantastic ports-of-call providing a different adventure every day. Match that up with a holiday at an all-inclusive resort or a hotel and cruising is the clear winner. You can ask us for pre- or post-cruise accommodations, as bundling your entire holiday together could enhance your savings. Let us help you navigate all the details of planning your cruise holiday. Next few pages are full of select itineraries easily accessible from the Arabian Gulf.

Please contact your Cruise Specialist to book your Cruise Vacations featured in this brochure. In order to process your request quicker, we need following information: • Name of the Ship and departure date • Accommodation type: Suite, Balcony or Ocean-View. • Guest Information: Full names (as it appears on the passport), date of birth, nationality and passport details. • Contact Details: Full postal address of all guests plus at least one contact telephone number. • Emergency Contact Details: The name and number of a person who can be contacted in the event of a holiday emergency. • Dinner Seating Preferences: Table size, time of sitting and whether you are travelling with another party. Special Requirements: Special dietary or medical requirements. • Mobility: Please make us aware of guests who are not fully mobile or who use wheelchairs at any time. • Special Occasions: Birthdays, Honeymoon or Anniversary or Family Get Together.

If you can afford a holiday, you can afford a cruise.

Deposit: A deposit is required at the time of confirmation. If booking within 90 days of departure, full payment is required.

In fact, you could save money by taking a cruise. Just to prove it, use the handy chart below to compare the cost of a cruise to a typical land-based holiday. Chances are, when you add it all up, you will probably get a lot more holiday from a cruise for a lot less money.

Final Payment: Cruise Lines must receive the balance of your fare as per the time frame given in the initial letter of offer or confirmation failing which Cruise lines reserve the right to resell the accommodation held in your name. This will also result in cancellation charges.

Winter and Hunting the Lights

norway A winter expedition along the coast of Norway is a beautiful experience. The landscape is covered in pure white snow; the air is fresh, pure and crisp. Clusters of cosy houses glow on the shores like embers, and the stunning backdrop of snow-clad mountains reflects the polar twilight.

A major element of the winter journey is hunting the Aurora Borealis. In the winter, the sun is low on the horizon and, north of the Arctic Circle, can even be below the horizon for some weeks. This natural phenomenon creates beautiful shades of light. The Northern Lights are something else entirely! For thousands of years people in the northern part of the world have marvelled at the spectacular displays that occasionally light up the night sky. Sailing with Hurtigruten provides the best possibilities to experience the magic colour show from light green to dark purple flickering across the Arctic sky. “Hunting the Light” is a signature of Hurtigruten’s winter voyages, hunting and experiencing the many and beautiful types of light visible during the winter months.

Midnight sun Day

Destination

The sun never takes a break here in northern Norway - a land where the light never fails to inspire. The country has always been known as “the Land of the Midnight Sun”, but even this cannot convey the enduring beauty to be found here in “the Land of Light and Darkness”.

Kirkenes, the voyage turning point

The variations of light associated with the special coastal landscape is the most distinctive feature of the region. In addition to the midnight sun and the dark winters, the period of dusk between light and dark creates a relaxing and calming mood compared with the energising force of the sun. In northern Norway, the dusk often lasts a couple of hours every day during the winter, a season which also sees the heavenly cascades of the Northern Lights. Nothing can equal the sight of moonlight playing across the ocean and the snow-clad mountains.

Departures every day!

One cannot experience northern Norway to the full without being captivated by the variations in light and the sheer emotional experience of the “Land of Excitement”. This far north, you’ll come to understand that the locals yearn for the sun when it hasn’t been seen for two long months.
