Hi - A friend and I are thinking of doing a 'Crossing the Antarctic Circle' trip in the 2015/16 season, and are seriously considering Akademik Ioffe in January 2016. At the moment, the exact dates are not out yet, and so we are being offered a 5% discount on the assumption that the dates will remain unchanged. I just wanted to check if anyone knows whether there are usually any early bird (or any other discounts) on Ioffe/Vavilov *after* the dates are announced? In the latter case, we better wait. The 5% discount apparently expires once the dates are announced. Quite weird to be honest.
