Fred Olsen to Mark 170th Anniversary With Full Fleet In Cadiz
On 10th September 2018, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ fleet of four ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – will join together once again to mark their 170th anniversary in one of Europe’s most historic cities, Cádiz in Spain.
The get together named ‘Captains in Cádiz’, will be full of celebrations and festivities, on four special themed cruise itineraries, to go on sale from 28th September 2016.
Mike Rodwell, Managing Director of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“In July last year, we brought our four ships together for the very first time in Bergen, Norway, and it was one of the most celebrated events that we have held at Fred. Olsen since the shipping line’s inception in 1848. To mark our milestone 170th anniversary in 2018, we will be looking to build upon the tremendous success of our ‘Four Ships in Bergen’ event with ‘Captains in Cádiz’ – so-called because the ships’ Captains will be leading on many of the day’s activities.
Mike Rodwell also went on to say:
“Fred. Olsen is committed to the city of Cádiz, and we have been calling there since 1997. We know that, for many of our guests, Cádiz is a highlight of their cruise with us, and the city is renowned for its historical architecture, warm welcome and generous hospitality. This port’s excellent facilities within the city will allow all four Fred. Olsen ships to berth alongside each other, meaning that Cádiz is the ideal location for this important moment in Fred. Olsen’s history. We don’t want our guests to miss out, so book now to avoid disappointment!”
Further details of Fred. Olsen’s ‘Captains in Cádiz’ event will be released over the coming months, but it is expected that the festivities on the day will include:
» Themed entertainment on all four ships
» The chance to visit all four ships and meet up with the Captains and crew
» Unique menus, especially-created for the event
» A schedule of exciting shore tours
» Celebrations on the quayside, with performances from the ships’ Production Show teams and local entertainers
