Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines named ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ at the Silver Travel Awards 2020 – for a record five years running

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has been crowned ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ at the Silver Travel Awards 2020 – for a record five years in a row!

More than 225,000 votes were cast as part of the Silver Travel Awards, with the winners announced at a virtual awards ceremony yesterday afternoon, hosted by writer and broadcaster, Gyles Brandreth.

Ellie Fulcher, Group Sales and Affinity Manager at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Thank you to each and every one of you who voted for us to win the ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ category. It has been a challenging year for us all in travel, not least in cruise.

“We know that our guests have been extremely supportive of us, and can’t wait to get back cruising again, but to win this title again really does mean so much.

“We can’t wait to welcome the wonderful Silver Travel Advisor members aboard our ships again soon. Here’s to many years of happy cruising ahead!”

Debbie Marshall, Managing Director, Silver Travel Advisor said:

“Over-50’s may not have had the opportunity to holiday quite as they intended this year, but they have been keen to show their support for the travel companies that have best delivered in these unprecedented times. Their awards are especially well-deserved this year and we’d like to add particular congratulations to Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines for having won Best Ocean Cruise Line for the fifth year running.”

The accolade follows on from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines being named ‘Best Cruise Line Operator for Groups’ in the Group Travel Awards 2020 earlier this month, for a record nine consecutive years.

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.
