Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched its 2011 Preview brochure with details of itineraries and prices for 63 cruises from April through to November. All four cruise ships are included, and cruise destination areas are the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and Baltic, the Canary Islands, Iberia, UK and Ireland. There is also a selection of mini cruises lasting from between two to four nights’ duration. Cruises depart from six different regional ports: Dover, Southampton, Liverpool, Newcastle, Greenock (for Glasgow), and Rosyth (for Edinburgh).
Key points in the brochure are:
- Preview pricing saves on prices that will appear in the main 2011/2012 brochure.
- Best pick of cabins on the ship and itinerary of your choice.
- Small, friendly ships with a very British atmosphere
- Book a suite on any ship on any cruise and you automatically receive the Suite Dreams package – including in-cabin binoculars, and a world atlas for reference.
