Hurtigruten_2_navigating Raftsund Strait.jpgExplore Norway's fiords for 12 days on a Hurtigruten cruise for the price of a seven-day voyage. This special, which must be booked by Sept. 30, applies to Norwegian Coastal Voyage cruises departing Oct. 5-Dec. 31. The journey takes you to 34 ports along Norway's 1,250-mile west coast, from the charming Hanseatic port of Bergen to the town of Kirkenes near the Russian border. You'll visit Trondheim, one of the country's oldest cities; Tromso, the largest European town above the Arctic Circle; the Lofoten archipelago; and Alesund, which was destroyed by fire in 1904 and completely rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style. Prices range from $1,533-$2,140. Solo travelers are not charged single supplement fees, and AARP members receive an onboard cabin credit of up to $100.
