Book early for free upgrade - First come, first served! polar offers cabinDate: Ongoing while available
Ship: Expedition 2017/18/19 voyages

Booking your polar voyage early doesn't just give you more time to get excited about your holiday; it also means you can take advantage of our great cabin upgrade offer. On each departure of our Arctic and Antarctica voyages aboard the Expedition, the first booking in a twin-share category 2 cabin will be automatically upgraded to a twin-share category 3 - free! Category 3 cabins have a larger window rather than a porthole, with the benefit of being on a higher deck; this gives you the best vantage point from which to view the passing scenery. So, make sure you book as early as possible and be the lucky one to take advantage of this offer.

Terms & Conditions
The upgrade offer is ongoing, on a first-come-first served basis (until further notice) and is specific to the Expedition departures only. This offer is subject to availability at the time of booking and is only applicable to the cabin types as listed above. Upgrades are per person and cannot be combined with any other offer except Explore loyalty discounts. The offer does not apply to pre or post voyage services such as flights, transfers or hotel accommodation. .
