Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines asks guests to help name next fleet get-together in Lisbon in 2021

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is giving guests the opportunity to name its third fleet get-together in October 2021, when the company’s four ocean ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch - will reunite in Lisbon, Portugal.

A poll is now live on the Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines website, giving guests the chance to choose from three names for the event, or suggest their own. The options include ‘Four Fred.s in Lisbon’, ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’, and ‘Four B’s in Lisbon’.

It forms part of Fred. Olsen’s virtual cruise programme, which this week is reminiscing on the past two fleet reunions and the destinations they have visited. In 2015, Fred. Olsen’s four ships came together for ‘Four B’s in Bergen’, followed by ‘Captains In Cádiz’ in September 2018.

Ben Williams, Head of Digital at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“We know that our guests have loved taking part in our virtual cruises, and this week has been particularly special as we look back to these fantastic events. So we thought what better way to get them involved than to allow them to choose the name for the next one?

“We can’t wait to get our four ships back together again in Lisbon next year, and look forward to seeing our guests, old and new, there with us.”

Fred. Olsen launched the new fleet get-together in April, following the cancellation of the planned ‘Four Fred.s in Funchal’ event, which was due to take place on 4th April this year.

All guests who book to join one of the itineraries encompassing the event before 30th June 2020 can enjoy up to £200 per person to spend on board and the cost of tips covered, as well as a choice of cabin, restaurant and dining time, plus a number of other benefits.

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.
