From around the corner to around the globe

WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

DESTINATIONS From around the corner to around the globe You’re sure to love our sensational new programme of itineraries for 2017/18. Many months of painstaking planning have gone into each and every cruise to give you the best possible holiday experience. Of course we’ve stuck to the true Fred. Olsen formula: our smaller-scaled ships and friendly, welcoming crews will continue to bring the most spectacular destinations on earth closer to you. Wish to savour the natural wonders of the Arctic and Norway; escape to the sunshine of the Canaries; islandhop in the Caribbean; discover Europe’s most engrossing destinations; treat yourself to an invigorating Short Break; or embark on the full Grand Voyage adventure? It’s time to get on board with Fred. CRUISING TO DESTINATIONS WORLDWIDE Each year we create new, exciting itineraries that inspire and enchant, to include alongside those sailings most popular with past guests. Within this brochure you’ll find everything from explorations of our beautiful homeland to Black Watch’s unprecedented ‘Wonders of the World’ sailing in January 2018: the undoubted highlight of our new programme. There are even more chances to get closer to places that larger vessels simply can’t reach. Encounter the most remote, untouched corners of the Arctic; come face to face with fabulous fjordland in Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Greenland and even the hard-to-reach Faroe Islands; choose from an expanded selection of cruises taking in the breathtaking Scottish lochs; get to the heart of captivating cities in Scandinavia and the Baltic; and sail iconic European waterways galore, including Seville’s Guadalquivir River, Bremen’s River Weser, the Kiel Canal, the Gironde and Garonne rivers (into Bordeaux), and more. While authentic experiences have always been a hallmark of our itineraries, the new programme takes this to another level. Quenching the thirst for pure, unabashed exploration in depth are our ‘Authentic’ cruises – a brand new feature for Fred. in 2017. From embracing the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera to uncovering ‘España Verde’ (Green Spain), or up-and-coming Croatia, cruising from one distinct destination to the next is the only way to really focus and get under the skin of a particular region. Meanwhile, new chances to try popular cruises from previous years include Boudicca’s voyage to ‘Rugged & Rural Canada’, a choice of two Amazonian adventures on board Braemar, and another ‘Mystery Cruise’ – only this time the top-secret itinerary has been chosen by the Captain! Last but not least, we have an extensive wish list of cruises either timed to capture a world event or specially-themed for your ultimate pleasure. Alongside the ever-popular Monaco Grand Prix, guests will have opportunities to be a part of the Tall Ships’ Races, the Seville Fair, the Braemar Highland Games, Kiel Week and even the awe-inspiring America’s Cup (in Bermuda in June 2017). There are two unmissable chances to go “behind the scenes” of famous TV and movie locations around the UK and Ireland too. And for something more extensive, two 46-night adventures aboard Balmoral feature the iconic Rio Carnival and the energetic Mardi Gras in New Orleans. 10 Visit fredolsencruises.com, contact your travel agent or call 0800 0355 105
