Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched a new ‘Summer Cruises 2013’ brochure, introducing some unbeatable savings on 38 selected Summer cruises, departing from a range of convenient, regional UK ports – Southampton, Dover, Liverpool, Newcastle, Rosyth (Edinburgh) and Greenock (Glasgow) – between June and September 2013. Prices on these special cruises start from just £59 per person, per night, and include accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, and port taxes, and carry a commission rate of 7.5%.

These ‘Summer Sale 2013’ cruises, aboard all four ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Black Watch and Boudicca – visit a variety of attractive destinations, including Scandinavia, the Arctic, the Baltic, Iceland and Iberia. 

Guests taking advantage of these Summer 2013 cruise deals can also choose to upgrade with the popular ‘all-inclusive’ drinks package, for a special price of just £10 per person per night, which includes selected wines, spirits beers and soft drinks (on mini cruises, this package is priced at £39 per person, per night). What is more, premium branded drinks and cocktails are also available at half price.

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

“We have some fantastic value-for-money cruises on offer this Summer, and guests can book with confidence knowing that they are benefiting from great savings on a holiday packed full of wonderful experiences and memories. 

“Our warmer, more sociable onboard atmosphere is perfect for people who wish to travel by themselves, and our new ‘Summer Sale 2013’ promotion offers a limited number of twin cabins for sole occupancy for only a 50% supplement to cater to solo guests.”
