Northern Lights Promise If spectacular green light does not dance across the night sky during your Round Voyage in the period (1.10-31.03), you get a new 6 or 7-day voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes (Voyage North) or vice versa (Voyage South) completely free of charge. The journey is with an inside cabin and includes all meals; breakfast, lunch and dinner.*

Terms and conditions for the Northern Lights Promise

*The Northern Lights Promise applies to all passengers who have booked the Round Voyage Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen, departing between October 1 and March 31 .

The Northern Lights Promise is only valid if you have activated the Northern Lights warning system on board. The ship determines whether a Northern Lights event has occurred, regardless of weather conditions and actual visibility.

If the Northern Lights do not occur during your voyage, you will be given a new 6 or 7-day trip completely free of charge, either Voyage North or Voyage South, for the next season's Northern Lights Promise period (October 1 - March 31). 

The Northern Lights Promise must be redeemed – and a new trip ordered – within one month of returning from your original trip. Cabin category (inside cabin) can be upgraded at an additional cost based on availability. The offer is only granted in the form of one free trip as described above and has no cash value.
