Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests attractive savings on over 40 ocean and river sailings from June to September 2018, in its new ‘Summer Sale 2018’, on all new bookings made from 11th April to 2nd July 2018 inclusive. Guests can save up £400 per person on ocean cruises, and up to £300 per person on Brabant river cruises. Special solo cruising offers are also available on selected sailings.
The itineraries featured in Fred. Olsen's new ‘Summer Sale’ brochure are all offered on board its fleet of four smaller, more intimate ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – along with 156-guest river cruise ship, Brabant. Sailings include all the firm favourites, from Norway and the Arctic, to scenic French river cruises and leisurely voyages along the Rhine, on a variety of durations.
The ocean cruises featured in Fred. Olsen’s new ‘Summer Sale’ brochure depart from five convenient regional UK departure ports: Southampton, Dover, Liverpool, Newcastle, and Edinburgh (Rosyth).
Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
