With destination experience topping the over-50s ‘wish list’ when it comes to choosing a holiday, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has released four fascinating sailings ‘To the Top of the World’ in 2018/19, which take in remote parts of Northern Europe.
Holidaymakers can see dramatic landscapes, abandoned ‘ghost towns’, icebergs or the ‘Northern Lights’, on one of four hand-picked Fred. Olsen adventures to Arctic Russia, Remote Spitsbergen, Greenland and Norway, from June 2018 onwards.
As an added bonus, guests booking one of these selected Fred. Olsen cruises ‘To the Top of the World’ by 1st March 2018 can benefit from either a free all-inclusive drinks upgrade or up to £200 free shore tour credit.
Following a poll of 50,000 people aged 50 and over in October 2017 – the largest of its kind ever undertaken in the UK – Silver Travel Advisor has revealed in its ‘Industry Report 2018’ that the chance to learn about the destination holds the strongest appeal when it comes to choosing a holiday. In fact, nearly 50% of over-50s travellers book a getaway on this basis.
Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “These tempting sailings ‘To the Top of the World’ have been carefully selected to provide a lifetime of memories. Experiences range from exploring the abandoned Russian mining settlement of Pyramiden, photographing brilliant blue icebergs, or witnessing Mother Nature’s most sought-after light show, the ‘Aurora Borealis’, or ‘Northern Lights’.
“All guests need to do is to choose their voyage and they can sit back, relax and prepare to be inspired!”
