Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests the chance to 'sail and save’ with its new 'Summer Sale' campaign, which starts from 10th May 2017, on a selection of 35 holidays, departing from June to December 2017.
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 – and include all the firm favourites, from Spain and Portugal, to Norway and the Arctic, as well as the Caribbean and 'Around the UK & Ireland', on a variety of durations.
With the exception of its fly-cruises, the getaways featured in Fred. Olsen’s new ‘Summer Sale’ brochure depart from six convenient regional UK departure ports: Southampton, Dover, London Tilbury, Liverpool, Newcastle, and Rosyth (Edinburgh).
Fred. Olsen’s new ‘Summer Sale’ brochure showcases, for the very first time, exotic fly-cruises to the mesmerising, far-flung Indian Ocean, Madagascar and South Africa.
Fred. Olsen guests can ‘sail and save’ on three of Boudicca’s adventurous fly-cruises in 2017: a 33-night sailing to ‘The Mediterranean, Zanzibar & Mauritius’, ex Liverpool on 14th October 2017; a 14-night ‘Indian Ocean Islands & Zanzibar’ fly-cruise, ex Port Louis, Mauritius on 14th December 2017; and a 14-night ‘Madagascar, Mozambique & South Africa’ departure, ex Port Louis, Mauritius on 28th December 2017 (ending in Cape Town, South Africa).
Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
"Fred. Olsen's latest promotion features great-value offers on a choice of tempting destinations over seven months this Summer; guests can discover faraway cultures, fascinating wildlife and exotic landscapes on a fly-cruise of the Indian Ocean, or embark on an island-hopping adventure to the sun-kissed Caribbean.
“Choose your favourite place to visit, and Fred. Olsen’s friendly, welcoming crews and traditionally-built, smaller-scaled ships will be the perfect companions, allowing you to get 'closer' to the very best highlights around the globe.”
