There are now three new additional sectors available, all with extremely competitive discounts. Sectors are:-

  • Singapore – Yokohama
  • Yokohama – Los Angeles
  • Los Angeles – Dover

The 22-night middle sector of the world cruise is from Singapore to Yokohama (BL03425) and visits Ho Chi Min City in Vietnam, Hong Kong, China and South Korea before reaching Japan. Prices for this fly/cruise are from £1,798 per person.

Next new sector (BL03456) is of 26 nights from 6th April 2009 and is from Yokohama to Los Angeles, via Alaska, Canada and the USA, priced from £1,982 per person.

Final sector (BL03461) is a US and Caribbean cruise from Los Angeles via Mexico, South America and the Caribbean sailing back to Dover via the Azores, and is priced from £1,575 per person.

These new cruise sectors are in addition to the three sectors already on sale, so there are now six different sectors to choose from. The original sectors are:-

  • Dover – Singapore (32 nights)
  • Singapore – Vancouver (40 nights)
  • Vancouver – Dover (35 nights)

All prices are per person based on two sharing an inside twin cabin and include all meals and entertainment on board, port and airport taxes and flights where indicated.

Lol Nichols, general sales manager for Fred. Olsen said: “Our world cruises visit such a fantastic array of wonderful ports worldwide, but of course there is a limited number of people with the time and resources to take a complete world cruise. By increasing the number of sectors available, we are offering a greater choice of more manageable sectors at a very competitive price, so more people can be a part of this wonderful cruise. These new shorter sectors offer great value for money as all meals and entertainment on board are included in the price.”

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.
