Fred. Olsen – Most Successful Day Ever

Black Watch, Tilbury – 14-12-16

It’s not all about big new ships:

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines said it had its most successful sales day ever on Tuesday, March 7, 2017,  with bookings totalling over £3 million for the day, following the launch of its exciting new 2018/19 cruise program to its top tier loyalty club members.

This represents an increase of 15 percent on the same launch day in 2016, said the company.

In 2018/2019, the line’s four ships, Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch, will be visiting no fewer than 228 destinations in 73 countries around the globe, plus 91 areas of scenic cruising, on over 135 different itineraries.

Malcolm says: I’m a big fan of the Olsen product. Us lucky Brits have the choice of cruising on four of Olsen’s smaller/classic ships and there’s not a ‘rock wall’ in sight.

I particularly like ‘Black Watch’ and her sister ‘Boudicca’. At around 28,000 gross tonnes, they are the perfect size. However, ‘Balmoral’ and ‘Braemar’ are very nice ships too.

    Well done Edwin!

    There is a review on my blog. She’s still small compared to most other ships. I see nor reason why you would not enjoy the experience, as long as your don’t expect a six-star one.

    Do let me know how it goes.

    We have just booked a cruise on Balmoral for 2018. Fjords from Rosyth. Our first cruise with Fred. Olsen. I know she is the largest ship in their fleet and much bigger than anything we have cruised on before, but the itinerary ticks all the boxes for us. Now very much looking forward to it.
