Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines was delighted to host its first-ever ‘Gala Dinner’ on board 929-guestBraemar on 18th November 2013, as the ship stayed overnight in the Port of Dover. Before departing on a seven-night cruise to Tenerife and Casablanca, Fred. Olsen invited a selection of over 500 of its most loyal and valued guests, potential new customers, travel agents and media partners from all over the country to view Braemar’s facilities and enjoy the fine dining and entertainment on board.
Whilst on this unique ‘cruise to nowhere’ in Dover, guests were treated to a ‘Welcome Cocktail Party’, sumptuous five-course Black Tie ‘Gala Dinner’ and entertainment from popular vocalists Irie J and Idreiss and comedy acts from Micky Zany and Bob Webb.
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “Our first ‘Gala Dinner’ evening was a great success, with some excellent feedback from previous guests who may not have cruised with us for some time. It was an opportunity to remind guests just what makes Fred. Olsen different – which can’t easily be articulated, but is so apparent when anyone experiences our unique boutique-style cruising”.
“I’m delighted that so many guests have already rebooked and we hope that many more will do so over the coming weeks.”
Barbara Buczek, Head of Business Development & Corporate Affairs at Dover Harbour Board, said: “The Port of Dover was delighted to yet again welcome Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines and MV Braemar to its shores. The evening gave us the perfect opportunity to promote Dover as a destination and showcase the port facilities to Fred. Olsen’s loyal cruise passengers. The cruise business is of huge importance to the Port, Dover town as well as the Kent Region as a whole.
“The Port continues to raise awareness of Dover’s position as the UK’s second busiest cruise port, especially amongst Kent residents who Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines are keen to see on-board their vessels that depart from Dover.”
Fred. Olsen will be departing on a total of 12 voyages from Dover for the 2014/15 cruise season, on a variety of exciting itineraries, from an eight-night ‘Paris, Antwerp & Amsterdam’ cruise on board Braemar to an 11-night ‘Highlands, Islands & Ireland’ sailing.
