Press release -

Book now to benefit from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ ‘Book with Confidence’ campaign

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is encouraging guests to book their 2017 cruise holiday by 5th August 2016, in order to benefit from its ‘Book with Confidence’ campaign, which aims to reassure guests that a Fred. Olsen cruise holiday offers complete peace of mind.

The campaign is applicable on all 2017 cruises of five nights’ duration and more, and is made up of the following three strands:

  • Free-of-charge cancellation – guests can book any 2017 cruise of five nights’ duration and more and – if they cancel up to 90 days prior to departure – Fred. Olsen will refund the full deposit, no questions asked!
  • Free spending money ashore – guests will receive 200 Euros (or equivalent currency, depending on the cruise) per room spending money, courtesy of Fred. Olsen.
  • Weekly ‘added value’ benefits – each week throughout the campaign, Fred. Olsen will be offering an additional benefit to any guest making a booking within that week.

    Launched in mid-July 2016, the campaign is now in its third and final week. Guests booking their cruise within this final week, running from 30th July until 5th August 2016, will benefit from a free Spa Treatment, worth £35 per person. Fred. Olsen’s ‘Atlantis Spa’, which is available on all four ships, offers a wide range of indulgent beauty treatments and therapies, including waxing, massages, facials, hair styling and colouring, manicures and pedicures, with prices starting from just £10. Plus, there is a variety of fitness classes on offer, from Yoga to Pilates and fit ball training, from just £5 a session.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines we are very proud of our smaller ships – Bolette, Borealis and Balmoral - and the imaginative and unusual itineraries they allow us to offer. Every cruise is hand-crafted from scratch by our team of in-house Journey Planners to make sure you are not only visiting the best destinations, but at the best time to experience them.

For us, it’s not just about where we go but how we take you there. We put as much time into planning scenic cruising as we do in choosing the destinations themselves. On board, our Signature Experiences showcase the history, culture, nature and flavours of the destinations you’ll visit – from Treats of the Region, where you can enjoy local delicacies, to our Sky at Sea star-gazing sessions where you can relax with a hot toddy out on deck while our astronomer talks you through the night sky.

Plus, with each ship carrying 1,300 guests or less, our ships are small enough for us to offer a warm, friendly and personal service where nothing is ever too much trouble, as we visit a host of exciting ports in every corner of the globe.
