Enjoy free drinks on selected festive 2022 sailings with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines


Travellers looking for some Christmas cheer this winter can enjoy a free all inclusive drinks package on board selected 2022 festive sailings with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines when booked before Sunday 20th November.

The offer includes chances to seek out the mesmerising Northern Lights, visit Funchal’s famed New Years Eve fireworks or even soak up some winter sun in the Canaries.

Clare Ward, Director of Product and Services at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“There’s so much to be excited about during the festive period and what better way to celebrate than with a cruise. On board our smaller, friendlier ships, guests can enjoy a warm and civilised atmosphere, with all the special festive touches, from beautifully decorated ships to carol singing and sipping mulled wine out on deck.

“We know these added value packages mean a great deal to our guests, and we’re pleased to be offering all inclusive drinks on a selection of our festive sailings. With a drinks package, guests can really make the most of their time on board, whether that be sipping a glass of house wine or enjoying a soft drink whilst sitting back in one of our bars or lounges enjoying the festivities.”

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has defined and redefined the cruise experience, and judging by the number of passengers that come back time and again, we seem to have styled it to perfection

The company originated in Hvitsten, a small town on Oslofjord in Norway, in 1848 when three Olsen brothers – Fredrik Christian, Petter and Andreas – bought their first ships and began an international shipping company.

Now into the fifth generation of the family, they operate companies skilled in various aspects of the cruise and passenger shipping trade as well as aviation, ships’ crewing, shipbuilding and offshore industries.
Aside from the transportation industries, the Fred. Olsen group also has interests in the luxury hotel sector, estate management, property development, and electronics companies.

Offices for the company are spread throughout the world, although the company headquarters remain firmly in the family’s hands in Oslo and Tenerife. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is based in Ipswich in Suffolk.
