Escape the winter blues on selection of sunshine sailings with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, including £100 per person saving

Travellers looking to escape the winter blues can join Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines aboard a number of international sailings, departing between October 2021 and February 2022 - including extra savings of up to £100 per person.

As the darker mornings and evenings draw in, Fred. Olsen is shining a spotlight on its autumn and winter cruises, with hand-crafted sailings including those visiting the shores of the Mediterranean and Adriatic. Departures are available from Liverpool, Dover and Southampton. Earlier in August, Fred. Olsen were the first cruise line to sail internationally on their journey to Iceland – they now have an extensive programme of international sailings on board their two new ships lined up for the rest of the year.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering an extra £100 per person off a selection of its winter sun sailings, on all new bookings made from today until 29th October 2021 inclusive. Plus, guests booking a Freedom Fare can enjoy up to £100 per person to spend on board and have the cost of tips covered too.

Jackie Martin, Director of Marketing and Sales at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“There is already a real sense of autumn drawing in, and with so many of us missing out on summer holidays now really is the perfect time to book an adventure for later in the year.

“Our journey planners have hand-crafted these itineraries specially to make the most of some winter sun as the cooler temperatures set in at home, while also bringing opportunities to delve into the local history and cultures found in each of the destinations too.

“With some uncertainty remaining with international travel, the beauty of cruising on board our smaller ships is that, should we need to, our Journey Planners are on hand to change course and make any additional requirements as seamless as possible for our guests.

“We have added these extra incentives to help you to make the most of your time with us, whether on board or ashore, and can’t wait to welcome you on board very soon.”

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.
