Press release   •   Jun 01, 2017 12:52 BST

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines will be commencing its 2017/18 cruise season from Dover on 4th June 2017, with a sold-out seven-night ‘Phenomenal Fjords of Norway’ itinerary, aboard its elegant 804-guest Black Watch. In total, the ship will be offering six unique, great-value holidays up to August 2017; guests can choose from a 10-night ‘Lochs of Scotland’ cruise, a 14-night ‘Iceland, Ireland & Islands’ adventure and a 27-night adult-only ‘Fjords of Norway, Iceland & Greenland’ voyage.

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

“We are once again pleased to be giving our guests in the South East the chance to cruise with us ‘from right on their doorstep’, from the convenient and accessible Port of Dover.

“Not only will Black Watch be serving our guests out of Dover from June to August, but Balmoral and Braemar have also offered cruise departures earlier in the year, reinforcing the popularity of Fred. Olsen’s sailings from this regional port.”

Examples of Black Watch’s ex-Dover cruises in 2017 are as follows:

- 10-night W1707 ‘Lochs of Scotland’ cruise, departing on 11th June 2017. Prices start from £1,299 per person (with limited availability).

Though only a short distance from home, guests will feel ‘half a world’ away, as they uncover this enchanting region. There will be photo opportunities galore: Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain; Fingal’s Cave, highly-rated by Fred. Olsen guests; and the beautiful Orkney Islands.
