Expensive drinks package.
Jan Westrope | November 15, 2021 | Fred Olsen Cruise Lines | Bolette
We had a lovely break on Bolette. The service, food and cabins were very good as expected. The entertainment crew on stage were the best I’ve seen in 25 years of cruising. My beef was the drinks package which only allows for house products or a 50% charge added for brands which are only pence more expensive. I really think this needs to be brought in line with other lines especially when paying £35 pppd on a 5 night cruise. It wouldn’t put me off sailing with the line again but wouldn’t entertain the package.
