Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines takes up the 'Ice Bucket Challenge', in support of Macmillan

Staff at Ipswich-based Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines have taken up the 'Ice Bucket Challenge', in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, which is one of its three staff charities for 2014.

Fred. Olsen was nominated by John Cooper at Liverpool Cruise Club and a group of brave staff leapt to the Challenge! In turn, Fred. Olsen has nominated its cruise ship Braemar to take up the gauntlet!  

Here you can see Fred. Olsen staff get an icy soaking in front of their Head Office at Fred. Olsen House in White House Road, all in support of an excellent cause!

To donate £3 to Macmillan Cancer Support, text ICE to 70550. To find out more, visit the Macmillan website at www.macmillan.org.uk or Twitter at #IceBucketChallenge

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.
