Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched a new brochure of 52 specially selected, ex-UK cruises for 2011, offering exceptional value for money – The Captains’ Collection. All the featured cruises offer additional savings on the prices in Fred. Olsen’s second edition brochure, and selected cruises offer Double Savings. The special rates detailed in the Captains’ Collection are applicable on bookings made up to and including 28th February 2011 (subject to availability.)
The Captains’ Collection includes cruises on all four Fred. Olsen ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Black Watch and Boudicca. The selected cruises all sail from a variety of UK ports, and destinations include – Norway and the fjords, Greenland and Iceland, the Arctic and North Cape, Russia and the Baltic, the Mediterranean, the Adriatic, the Canary Islands and ‘Around Britain’.
The Captains’ Collection savings can be up to £400 per booking, and discounts vary, depending on the cabin grade and duration of the cruise. On a cruise of 16 nights or more, there are savings of £400 on a Suite, £300 on a Superior Outside Cabin, £250 on an Outside Cabin, and £200 on an Inside Cabin. These savings are all based on twin cabins; on a single cabin, the saving is between £100 and £200, depending on grade. Even on the shortest cruises – 2-3 night mini cruises – there are still savings from £40 - £100 per booking.
