Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched a new brochure, entitled ‘Discover the Norwegian Fjords’, dedicated to its range of Norwegian fjords holidays in 2017. Showcasing 16 unique itineraries, from a ‘Five-Night Fjords’ cruise, departing from Newcastle on 25th May 2017 – the ideal ‘taster break’ for those who have not cruised before – to an eight-night ‘Scenic Fjords & Waterfalls of Norway’ sailing, departing from Southampton on 8th July 2017.
Neil Herbert, Head of Sales at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“There is no better way to take in the Norwegian fjords – one of nature’s most spectacular phenomena – than on a scenic cruise on Fred. Olsen’s smaller ships!
“We recognise that the reason that guests book a fjords cruise is to actually see the fjords, so the scenic cruising element is just as important – if not more important – than the destinations themselves. We don’t just take our guests from port to port; as the Norwegian cruise specialist, we take the time to deviate away from the direct routes, bringing our guests ‘closer’ to the sheer mountainsides, stunning scenery and breath-taking waterfalls, and showcasing the majestic fjords at their very best.”
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 on the independent review site, Feefo:
“The fjords were a wonderful experience, particularly on a smaller ship which has the ability to travel where the large ships cannot.”
“The mixture of cities, towns and beautiful fjords on the cruise was perfect – we enjoyed every location.”
“The whole holiday surpassed all our expectations. The Norwegian fjords are amazing to see – photographs don’t do them justice.”
