Fred Olsen Unveils 20 Adults Only Cruises For 2016/17
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has unveiled 20 new “adults-only” cruises planned for their 2016/17 worldwide brochure. The cruise line has launched its new brochure featuring a wide range of sailings taking in a total of 253 destinations across 84 countries around the world.
Fred. Olsen’s four fleet members, Braemar, Balmoral, Boudicca and Black Watch will showcase 23 maiden ports of call including Arendal (Norway); Baltimore (Maryland, USA); Fort William (Scotland, UK); Tasiilaq (Greenland); Pyramiden (Svalbard); Holy Loch (Scotland, UK); Laguna San Rafael (Chile); Isla de San Andrés (Colombia); Gloucester (Massachusetts, USA); Klaksvik (Faroe Islands); Charlotte Amalie (St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands); Falmouth (Jamaica); Banana Coast (Trujillo, Honduras); Tampa (Florida, US); Rosslare (Ireland); Aabenraa (Denmark); and Rovinj (Croatia).
There are 20 “adults-only” cruises in total, designed for passengers aged 18 or above. These sailings will offer passengers the opportunity to sail with people of a similar age and include such itineraries as Braemar’s 11-night ‘Great British Cruise’ and Balmoral’s 14 night ‘Portuguese Islands & Cities’ sailing.
As well as the “adult-only” itineraries, the cruise line has also taken the decision to continue with the unique concept of ‘mystery’ cruises and will offer a ‘Maiden Call Mystery Cruise’ in the calendar where destinations will only be revealed to the passengers who book a place on board. This concept follows the success the cruise line has seen with similar ventures.
Furthermore, Fred. Olsen’s Black Watch and Boudicca will set sail for two ‘Grand Voyages’ in January 2017, visiting 67 destinations across 38 countries between them.
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We are very excited to be launching our new ‘Worldwide Cruises 2016/17’ brochure, as it brings to life the vast array of destinations that we visit and the unique cruise experiences that we offer. As a brand, we have a clear focus on ‘Bringing the world closer to you’: we are ‘closer’ to the market, with more regional departures; ‘closer’ to the destination, with our smaller, more intimate cruise ships; ‘closer’ to our global partners, offering our guests the best possible experiences in ports around the world; and we are ‘closer’ to our guests, with award-winning customer service across our fleet.”
Fred. Olsen are extremely popular for their multiple UK departure points and that is set to continue following the release of the new brochure. The cruise line will offer ten regional departure points in 2016/17 including Southampton; Dover; Harwich; Tilbury; Falmouth; Liverpool; Newcastle; Rosyth (for Edinburgh); Greenock (for Glasgow); and Belfast.
