Frequently asked questions

1893 Ambassador is free and open to anyone interested in travelling. You can signup by clicking on the button on the top this page “Join the programme”. If you would like to invite others to become members, you can share the link to this page.

Among other things, your membership comes with a range of benefits with the Hurtigruten Group, including discounts on all our expedition cruises and coastal voyages.

You also get reduced prices and unique benefits from our selected partners.

When booking online, your Ambassador number can be added together with personal data. The shopping basket will then be updated accordingly and any discounts will be deducted if applicable. 

Since the number is added at the very late stage in the booking process, the end user will not see discounted fares on the fares and availability page, but in the shopping basket/invoice.

1893 Ambassador is a cardless programme, but you will receive a digital card with your unique membership number and level. If you prefer, you can print this out and keep it with you.

All our partners provide fantastic offers and benefits to our members. To find out more about these, you can click the relevant links under Partner Benefits.

As a member of 1893 Ambassador, you will elect to receive information on the programme from the Hurtigruten Group so you’re always up to date on your benefits and opportunities. Unfortunately, it is not possible to opt out of receiving e-mails or other communication from the Ambassador programme. Find out more about 1893 Ambassador terms and conditions.

You can unsubscribe from 1893 Ambassador here.

When you unsubscribe, you will lose access to the benefits you have as a member and we will no longer contact you. You can re-subscribe at any time.

If you choose to re-subscribe, you will join at the same membership level you had before unsubscribing. So, if you are currently a Level 2 member, you would start again at Level 2 when you re-subscribe at a later date.
