Be spellbound by Norway’s mighty fjords on a Fred. Olsen smaller-ship cruise

Press release   •   Apr 24, 2017 17:07 BST

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched a new brochure, entitled ‘Spellbinding Norway’, dedicated to its range of ‘Norwegian Fjords’ holidays in 2017 and 2018. It showcases nine unique itineraries in 2017, and nine in 2018, ranging from a ‘Five-Night Fjords’cruise aboard Balmoral, departing from Newcastle on 23rd August 2017 – the ideal ‘taster break’ for those who have not cruised before – to Braemar’s eight-night ‘Scenic Fjords & Waterfalls of Norway’ sailing, departing from Southampton on 16th May 2018.

Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“With Norwegian heritage that dates back to 1848, and smaller ships that can sail into places out of reach to larger vessels, Fred. Olsen can show you this remarkable region like no one else.

“As the Norwegian cruise specialist, we take the time to deviate away from the direct routes, bringing our guests ‘closer’ to sheer mountainsides, stunning scenery and breath-taking waterfalls…and sailing from a northeastern departure port, such as Newcastle, means that you can be in the fjordland just 24 hours after slipping anchor in the UK!”

Fred. Olsen’s ‘Norwegian Fjords’ itineraries are the Number One best-seller for new-to-cruise guests, and receive some of the cruise line’s best feedback.
