Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines unveils 2018/19 itineraries
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has announce that, in 2018/19, it will be visiting no fewer than 228 destinations in 73 countries around the globe, covering 91 areas of scenic cruising, from the UK departure ports of Southampton, Dover, Liverpool, Newcastle and Edinburgh (Rosyth).
Fred. Olsen’s new 2018/19 itineraries will go on general sale from 9th March 2017 and will include nine maiden calls: Anavilhanas, Amazonas, Brazil / Chioggia, Province of Venice, Italy / Georgetown, Ascension / Khasab, Oman / Kirkenes, Norway / Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico / Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia / Porbandar, Gujarat, India / Sanremo, Liguria, Italy
In 2018/19, Fred. Olsen will be making the most of its smaller-sized ships – which can sail right into the heart of the destination, where larger ships cannot reach – by featuring even more river, fjords and scenic cruising.
Fred. Olsen will be adding new areas of scenic cruising in 2018/19: cruising Erfjorden, Hjørundfjord, and Jøsenfjord; Norway. The cruise line will also be offering guests more of its signature ‘Lochs of Scotland’ itineraries, along with its popular ‘German Waterways’ and ‘French Rivers’ sailings.
With the publication of its first-ever dedicated fly-cruise brochure, Fred. Olsen is highlighting new exotic holidays to Arabia and India, and growing on its best-selling ‘Indian Ocean’ itineraries – taking in some of the world’s most stunning scenery and giving guests a ‘closer’, more authentic experience in the destination.
In 2018/19, guests will be offered an even greater choice of shorter five-night ‘taster’ cruises – to the Norwegian fjords and along the scenic Seine – which enable new-to-cruise guests to get a feel for the three main elements of a Fred. Olsen holiday: the destination exploration, the scenic sailing, and the onboard experience.
They will also be offering more ‘experience-led’ cruises than ever before – a total of 117 in 2018/19 – specifically ‘built’ around a key global event, such as the Edinburgh Tattoo, the ‘Northern Lights’ and New Year’s Eve in Sydney.
