Europe

WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

Europe Combining scenic waterways and stunning rural landscapes with some of the finest destinations the world has to offer... experiencing the delights of Europe is effortless when you’re in the hands of award-winning Fred. Olsen, with over 20 expertly-tailored itineraries to choose from. When we say our ships can take you places that others can’t, we really mean it. Our oceangoing ships will showcase the superb scenic highlights of narrow canals, winding rivers, unspoilt countryside and more in 2017, making the most of their smaller size to reach hidden gems and beautiful ports that larger vessels simply can’t access. There are even more opportunities to discover captivating French rivers; enjoy the ever-popular navigation of Spain’s Guadalquivir River to seductive Seville; and glide along tranquil waterways en route to historic cities in Germany – three of our fleet have been given special permission to transit the River Weser to Bremen. Meanwhile, new highlights include the handsome Belgian city of Ghent, accessed via the Ghent-Terneuzen Canal. With our ships able to dock right in the heart of towns and cities across Europe, you’ll have the convenience of the highlights being only a short distance away, making everything so much easier. Plus, throughout this incredible selection of European cruises, you’ll find overnight stays galore, allowing for a more in-depth exploration of the likes of beautiful Bordeaux and Hanseatic Hamburg, all at a pace that suits you. Alongside popular favourites there are two opportunities to discover ‘España Verde’ (Green Spain) on an authentic exploration of this spectacular region. Join Boudicca or Balmoral and you’re sure to be spellbound from start to finish as you delve deep into the four coastal communities that make up this breathtaking region – Galicia, the Basque Country, Cantabria and Asturias. The lush landscapes, modern cultures and age-old traditions of this area blend to present a diverse array of experiences for you to enjoy. As you would expect from Fred. Olsen we have also timed a variety of voyages to coincide with special events across the continent. Admire tulip displays at their most vibrant at Amsterdam’s legendary Keukenhof Gardens; call into the maritime city of Kiel during Kiel Week (‘Kielerwoche’), considered the largest sailing event in the world; sample the annual Seville Fair; and don’t miss the chance to embrace the festive spirit on board Black Watch as you take in some of the best Christmas markets of Germany – a truly magical, memorable adventure. 142 Visit fredolsencruises.com, contact your travel agent or call 0800 0355 105
