Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines extends its Reservations opening hours

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has announced that it will be extending the opening hours of its Reservations Department, with effect from Monday 5th March 2012. The new opening times will be as follows:

• Monday to Friday 08.00hrs to 20.00hrs
• Saturday 09.00hrs to 17.00hrs 
• Sunday 10.00hrs to 16.00hrs

The move has been made in response to increased demand from both travel agents and Fred. Olsen guests.

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

“These days, we all expect to be able to shop, do our banking, contact suppliers, and handle a host of other transactions at a time that suits us. This may be early in the morning, or later in the evening, to fit in with the working day, or at the weekend, when we are less pressurised.

“As a dynamic operator, we must listen to our guests and our travel agent partners, and respond to their needs. These extended hours will allow us to provide an improved and even more customer-friendly service all round.”

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.
