New and old destinations in Fred Olsen 2012/13 cruise programme
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' worldwide programme for 2012/13 features a comprehensive selection of ex-UK cruises from early 2012 to Spring of 2013 on the classic ships Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch.
And all the new cruises feature its No Fuel Surcharge Guarantee.
The 2012/13 programme includes an enormous choice of destinations, varying in duration from a mini-cruise of just two nights to an epic world voyage lasting 112 nights.
Itineraries feature new and exciting destinations along with many old favourites, and departures are from convenient regional British ports – Dover, Southampton, Portsmouth, Newcastle, Greenock (Glasgow) and Rosyth (Edinburgh).

New features for 2012/13
Fred. Olsen continues to make regular enhancements to its fleet. Boudicca benefitted from a major refit in January 2011, allowing for extra cabins, smart new shopping outlets and a top- deck fitness centre. The onboard experience continues to benefit from an ever-increasing choice of activities and interests for guests to pursue.
The cruise enrichment programme, Vistas , formerly The ArtsClub, has been re-launched and reinvigorated, with many distinguished new names joining the panoply of on-board experts, covering an even wider range of subjects.
Other additional attractions, on selected cruises, include the Flagship Golf programme boasting even more top courses in 2012/13, and the Music and Laughter programme. This gives guests a wonderful opportunity to enjoy live music and comedy in an intimate setting, from some of the top names in the business, and all at no extra cost.
Past favourite include the Divas of Motown, The Drifters and Lulu, and big names lined up for this season include The Operababes – back by popular demand – The Sounds of Boney M, featuring Sheyla Bonnick, and The Tornados – the first UK group to top the US charts with Telstar, and originally backing group to Sixties legend Billy Fury.
Nigel Lingard, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ marketing director, said: “It is hard to think of a better time to take a cruise with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. The latest programme really does have something for everyone, in terms of destinations, length of cruise, activities and entertainment on board – and with our No Fuel Surcharge Guarantee, our guests can book with absolute confidence.
“As the popularity of cruising continues unabated, especially ex-UK cruising, we are delighted to be able to offer this extensive selection of cruises from UK ports, and we very much look forward to welcoming guests, old and new, on board our four ships in 2012/13.”
