To support the travel trade in getting behind this campaign, Fred. Olsen's Sales team are visiting agents in the Southampton area during July, and are providing them with a variety of 'point of sale' materials to highlight the benefits of booking a Fred. Olsen Summer cruise. The campaign also features prominent TV and radio advertising, door drops and national and regional press promotions.

Fred. Olsen has a clear focus on ‘bringing the world closer to you’, taking guests from convenient, regional UK departure ports to hundreds of exciting destinations around the globe, aboard its fleet of four smaller, more intimate ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudiccaand Black Watch.

Fred. Olsen’s classically-styled, smaller-scale ships are able to access many ports around the world that larger cruise ships cannot: taking guests into the heart of iconic cities, river cruising through breathtaking landscapes, past soaring fjords, and to soft, sandy beaches, bathed in sunshine. During its 2016/17 cruise season, Fred. Olsen will be visiting 253 destinations in 84 countries – more than ever before!

The relatively small size of Fred. Olsen’s ships means that there is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere on board, where guests and crew quickly get to know each other; Fred. Olsen’s famous ‘service with a smile’, fantastic five-star cuisine and elegant, stylish ships all help to create a holiday to remember!

Fred. Olsen is pleased to have been awarded the ‘Gold Trusted Merchant’ status by independent review site Feefo in 2015, for the second year in a row. This accreditation is based on genuine customer feedback and, to date, Fred. Olsen has received over 11,000 reviews, with 95% of these being in the ‘Good’ or ‘Excellent’ categories.

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.
