  6. Found this information on Bolsovers web site: Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has announced the launch of its first river cruise programme with sailings in Europe from 2018. The programme will go on sale from 26th May 2017 and will operate from April to November next year. The 156-guest river boat, Brabant, will take in some of Europe’s most beautiful rivers, including the Danube, Rhine, Main and Moselle – on a total of 30 departures in 2018, with durations ranging from five to 25 nights. Fred. Olsen will be bringing its unique style of ‘destination exploration’ to the river cruise market, with exciting itineraries visiting some of Europe’s most stunning rivers, canals and valleys. Guests can choose to sail the breath-taking Danube, taking in the major cities and wildlife-rich Danube Delta; savour the highlights of the heart of Europe, along the twists and turns of the Moselle, Rhine and Main valleys; or enjoy a ‘taster’ cruise to Amsterdam, when the tulips are in full bloom. Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “At Fred. Olsen, we specialise in creating a ‘home-from-home’ atmosphere on our ocean cruises, and we are proud to be bringing our many decades of expertise and rich sailing heritage to the river cruise market for the very first time. In fact, the name Brabant harks back to Fred. Olsen’s historic passenger ship of the same name from the 1920s. “Guests can rest assured that the new Fred. Olsen river cruises will be underpinned by the usual high standards, award-winning customer service and understated elegance that they have come to expect of our ocean-going offer. We firmly believe that we have crafted the perfect formula to ensure that our new river cruise guests can get the most out of their holiday with Fred. Olsen.” From bright and spacious public areas, to well-equipped bedrooms and ample deck space, from which to enjoy the superb views, Brabant has everything guests need for a comfortable river cruise. With just four decks, and fewer than 80 rooms and suites, staffed by 40 crew members, Brabant has the intimate and friendly feel that Fred. Olsen’s guests know and love. Cherry wood interiors and contemporary colours combine to make guests feel relaxed from the moment that they step on board. Juliette balconies with panoramic windows are a feature of many of the rooms, so that guests can enjoy expansive views of Europe’s most impressive waterways. Fred. Olsen guests will feel right at home on board Brabant, with English spoken throughout and all transactions conducted in Pounds Sterling. The British taste will also be reflected in the cuisine, customer service and shore tours on offer.
  7. Hit and miss with Bay of Biscay. I have sailed on it may times and had a different experience each time
  8. i dont think we are getting the full story here.
  9. I dont live in Newcastle but my family live there and travel here several times a year. I have stayed in the Premier Inn next to the Royal Quays and although very accessible to the port not a lot going on in the evening. If you want to stay there and not stay in Newcastle you could maybe go into Tynemouth which is not far by car it is quite low key but there are some nice quiet restaurants but the coastline there is lovely with a couple of nice beaches.

  11. I have sailed both on Bramaer and Balmorel with Fred Olsen and on both sailings I didnt see anyone wearing T-shirts and jeans. People were even dressing up on the non formal nights. I also found the beds very confortable however we did have twin beds.
