Discover the ‘Wonders of the World’ with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines in 2018

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has unveiled a specialist new brochure, dedicated to Black Watch’s epic 108-night ‘Wonders of the World’ cruise, departing from Southampton on 5th January 2018. This brochure has been carefully and creatively designed with a ‘high-end’ feel, to showcase the very best of this exclusive, ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ cruise experience.

Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“This is one of the most incredible voyages we have ever planned! Guests will take in 23 countries, on six continents, as well as two major canal transits, 37 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, one ‘Ancient Wonder of the World’, five ‘New Wonders of the World’, and two ‘New Wonder Cities’, all on one unforgettable journey!

“This circumnavigation of the globe also offers a host of other destinations, including islands in French Polynesia – which are hard to reach and can be very expensive to visit – plus, on Black Watch’s return journey, we will be calling into a number of stunning western Mediterranean ports, including Civitavecchia, for tours to romantic Rome, and Livorno, to visit picturesque Florence.”

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.
