Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests a trio of Caribbean cruises in Autumn and Winter 2017, aboard its popular Braemar and Balmoral ships. Guests can choose from a 32-night ‘Caribbean Discovery’ sailing in October, or a 16-night ‘Voyage to the Caribbean’ fly-cruise and 14-night ‘Caribbean Christmas & New Year’ fly-cruise in December.

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

“Our trio of great-value Caribbean cruises means that guests can escape the chilly British weather and enjoy the beauty and laid-back atmosphere of these sensational sunshine islands, aboard Fred. Olsen’s smaller, more intimate ships.

“Just imagine leaving the UK behind this Winter and embarking on an island-hopping adventure, going in search of sea turtles in Barbados, or just relaxing on the beach and soaking up the tropical climate over Christmas and New Year. Our cruises will give you amazing experiences and unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!”
