Last chance to enjoy dedicated solo savings as end of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Cruise Sale approaches

Solo travellers looking to plan their next adventure have until the end of February to take advantage of great savings in Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Cruise Sale, offering solo sailings from just £699 plus a free all inclusive drinks package or credit to spend on board.

The campaign, available on selected sailings when booked by 28thFebruary inclusive, features journeys to the cultural capitals of Northern Europe, scenic cruising in the Scottish isles alongside marine conservation charity ORCA and, later in the year, to seek out some winter warmth in the Canary Islands, or meander some of Europe’s Christmas markets.

On-board, solo travellers will find events dedicated to them and a warm welcoming atmosphere, with their service for solo guests seeing them awarded a number of accolades, most recently ‘Best Cruise Line for Solo Travellers’ at Cruise Critic’s UK Editors’ Picks Awards 2022.

Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Travelling the world is one of life’s many great highlights, and we don’t want travelling alone to be a barrier to that.

“Our Cruise Sale offers some exceptional savings for solo guests looking to plan their next adventure, and they can be sure of a warm and welcoming atmosphere to help them explore with other like-minded travellers too.

“Whether you’re looking to spot wildlife, enjoy the cultural highlights that Europe has to offer or enjoy a relaxing break in the sun, there’s a cruise for everyone.”

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines we are very proud of our smaller ships – Bolette, Borealis and Balmoral - and the imaginative and unusual itineraries they allow us to offer. Every cruise is hand-crafted from scratch by our team of in-house Journey Planners to make sure you are not only visiting the best destinations, but at the best time to experience them.

For us, it’s not just about where we go but how we take you there. We put as much time into planning scenic cruising as we do in choosing the destinations themselves. On board, our Signature Experiences showcase the history, culture, nature and flavours of the destinations you’ll visit – from Treats of the Region, where you can enjoy local delicacies, to our Sky at Sea star-gazing sessions where you can relax with a hot toddy out on deck while our astronomer talks you through the night sky.

Plus, with each ship carrying 1,300 guests or less, our ships are small enough for us to offer a warm, friendly and personal service where nothing is ever too much trouble, as we visit a host of exciting ports in every corner of the globe.
