UK & Ireland

WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

UK & Ireland Captivating scenery, sprawling countryside, ancient historical sites, culturerich cities and more: our home islands have inspired and enraptured visitors for centuries. Cruising to the highlights really is the only way to see the length and breadth of the region in one relaxed holiday. At Fred. Olsen we like to play to our strengths, which is why we’ve expanded on our most popular UK & Ireland sailings to create a bigger, bolder selection for you to choose from in 2017/18. Fresh from featuring in Fred.’s ‘Top 20 Highlights’ for the previous year, the Lochs of Scotland now feature four times in 2017, with the smaller-scaled Boudicca and Black Watch taking turns to navigate the most enchanting waterways that the country is rightly renowned for. Gloriously unspoilt landscapes combine with remote islands and charming towns to create a recipe for cruising perfection. What’s more, these itineraries have been expertlycrafted to pack in even more scenic highlights than before. Taking on a slight twist, our ‘Highlands & Lochs of Scotland’ cruise offers just as much adventure, but in only five nights. Becoming engrossed in the best of the larger destinations north of the border is equally rewarding: the ‘Scottish Highlands & Islands’ sailing departing in September 2017 is your chance to really get under the skin of this part of the UK, sailing from one fascinating port of the call to the next. Meanwhile, Black Watch’s unique ‘Winter Warmer’ is an enlightening cultural getaway devoted to all things traditionally and unashamedly Scottish. And keeping with the theme, Braemar will head to Scotland too, with an extended day in the historic city of Dundee expertly-timed for the annual Highland Games gathering in Braemar, Aberdeenshire. This special, historic event is one you won’t want to miss – among its many guests it’s attended each year by The Queen and Prince Philip. Elsewhere, there are two very special cruises that go “behind the scenes”, offering guests chances to visit UK & Ireland destinations that have featured in famous films and TV series’ both old and new. Famous titles featured range from Game of Thrones to Harry Potter to Poldark. Finally, Boudicca’s ‘Wildlife of England & Scotland’ sailing is a nature lover’s dream – binoculars are a must. 118 Visit fredolsencruises.com, contact your travel agent or call 0800 0355 105
