The ‘Pre-Launch Offers’ brochure is on general sale from 8th March 2012, with special launch prices available until 26th April 2012 inclusive. It includes ex-UK cruises from no fewer than eight UK regional ports; departures from Harwich and Belfast are offered for the first time, and the brochure also sees the welcome return of cruises from Liverpool. The other UK ports featured are Southampton, Dover, Newcastle, Greenock (Glasgow) and Rosyth (Edinburgh).
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ ‘Pre-Launch Offers’ brochure offers a huge array of exotic and attractive cruises, on a fascinating variety of cruise itineraries. Coupled with the increased number of departure ports, I think that this is the best ex-UK cruise programme that we have ever offered. In addition to ex-UK cruises, the brochure also features our popular new Canaries, North Africa and Cape Verde fly-cruise programme, for a quick getaway to some winter sun. We would advise agents to encourage their customers to book now to benefit from these extra special prices and to make sure of getting their cruise and cabin of choice.”
Highlights of our new 2013/14 cruise programme include a 28-night ‘Greek Odyssey’ on Black Watch, a 17-night exploration of undiscovered Lapland from Harwich, 10 nights visiting the ‘Highlands and Islands’ of the British Isles and a month-long, indulgent sailing of the Caribbean on Balmoral. And of course, there are short breaks, week-long holidays to Norway, two-week sailings to the Baltic, Europe or the Mediterranean, and fly-cruises on Braemar to the Canaries, Cape Verde and Africa.
A sample cruise is as follows:
Braemar ‘Voyage to the Arctic, White Sea & Midnight Sun’ cruise, M1316
