Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests the chance to get closer to some of Europe’s prettiest destinations in 2017, sailing from Southampton, with its new ‘Into the heart of your destination’ brochure.
Guests can take advantage of Fred. Olsen’s four smaller, more intimate ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Black Watch and Boudicca – to sail along the River Weser to Bremen, Germany; cruise along the entire length of Nærøyfjord, Norway; or dock alongside Bordeaux’s beautiful promenade.
Guests can also come face to face with the stunning fjordland in Norway, get to the heart of captivating cities in Scandinavia and the Baltic and canals and rivers that are restricted to ships Fred. Olsen’s size.
Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“Southampton is well-known as the UK’s most popular cruise departure port, and this demand has brought with it even more ships, which seem to grow larger and larger every year.
“However, this is not the case with Fred. Olsen; our smaller ships bring our guests an experience that can’t be super-sized! We can take you closer to enchanting cities and navigate waterways that are out of reach to larger vessels. This means our guests can be confident that they will see the best sights, get closer to city highlights and reach the most remote, untouched corners of the globe that some of the larger ships simply cannot go to.”
