Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines reveals new ‘South Africa Fly-Cruise’ adventure in January 2018

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has revealed more exciting ‘breaking news’, with the launch of its inaugural ‘South Africa Fly-Cruise’ on board Boudicca in Spring 2018, which existing guests can book from 19th May 2016, and which will go on general sale from 24th May 2016. This 14-night* itinerary will depart from London / Manchester airports on 10th January 2018, flying into Cape Town.

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

“This immersive itinerary has been created to give you the opportunity to visit a whole range of wonderful Game Reserves. For example, we arrive early and stay overnight in Port Elizabeth, Richards Bay and Durban, so you will have the best chance to see the ‘Big Five’, by taking a Game Drive at dawn and again at sundown – not forgetting the obligatory G&T, as you watch the sun descend across the African plains!

“The highlight for me is the beautiful, award-winning city of Cape Town: there is so much to do here that we are staying for three nights. Scale Table Mountain by cable car; discover the winelands of Stellenbosch or Constantia; take a stroll along Camps Bay; dine, shop and be entertained at the impressive Victoria & Alfred Waterfront complex; and visit what is perhaps the most beautiful cricket ground in the world, at Newlands. You might like to discover Cape Town on the back of a Harley Davidson; take a boat out whale- and dolphin-watching; or even go shark diving!”

Details of this exotic new Boudicca fly-cruise are as follows:

- 14-night* D1801 ‘South Africa Fly-Cruise’, ex London / Manchester on 10th January 2018, via Cape Town (*16 nights with flights) Prices start from just £2,699 per person, based on two adults sharing a twin-bedded, Interior Room, and include accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, plus port / airport taxes, flights and transfers.

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.
