Each week we invite three companies to offer their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a June cruise in Scandinavia. Prices per person, based on two sharing, with all meals.
£2,574: "Classic Norwegian Discovery"
A 10-night cruise in an inside cabin stopping at a number of Norwegian ports en route to Kirkenes, and returning to Trondheim. Includes SAS flights from Heathrow to Bergen on 8 June, returning from Trondheim. "June is a fantastic month for exploring the Norwegian coast, under the beautiful midnight sun," says Kathryn Beadle of Hurtigruten (0844 448 7601; hurtigruten.co.uk).
£3,119: "Norwegian Fjords Sojourn"
A nine-night cruise in an ocean view cabin, with calls at Stavanger, Bergen, Alesund, Oslo, Gothenburg and Copenhagen.
