Cruise experts at influential consumer website Cruise Critic have voted Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines ‘Best Value for Money’ in its ‘Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Picks Awards 2014’,for the third consecutive year.The winners are selected by Cruise Critic’s international team of Editors, based on the lines and ships that they feel best represent excellence in each of the 18 categories.

Adam Coulter, UK Editor of Cruise Critic, said:

“The cruise industry offers a wealth of choice, and the Editors’ Picks Awards share our expert insight and provide guidance to British holidaymakers who are interested in a cruise. With cruise lines constantly improving their products this isn’t an easy task, but we have identified the lines which have excelled in order to help cruisers plan their perfect cruise, and ensure the time and money they invest is well spent.”

The Cruise Critic Editors said of Fred. Olsen:

“Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offers a more traditional cruise experience at a great value – from two-for-one offers and drinks cheaper than UK pub prices, to tips that are lower than most in the industry. It also has great offers for solo passengers, with double cabins available at solo prices.”

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

“We are pleased that, for the third year running, our great-value cruises have been recognised by the expert Editors at Cruise Critic. We know that value for money is an important motivator to booking a cruise, along with the destination, and we are committed to providing a consistently high-quality cruise experience to our guests, which doesn’t cost the earth!”
