Fred. Olsen offers All Inclusive Drinks on 15 Alluring Norwegian Fjords Cruises

Travel Agent News for Fred Olsen Cruises Promotions and Sales

September 25th, 2018 – Holidaymakers looking to set sail to the scenic Norwegian fjords in 2019 can enjoy a free all-inclusive drinks upgrade on 15 selected itineraries with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines next year, when booked by 31st October 2018 inclusive.


Fred. Olsen’s free all-inclusive drinks upgrade offer is available on board all four of its ocean ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – on selected Norwegian fjords sailings between April and August 2019. Durations range from five to nine nights, departing from all five of Fred. Olsen’s convenient UK ports – Southampton, Dover, Liverpool, Newcastle and Edinburgh (Rosyth).


Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Norway is where our four more intimately-sized ocean ships really come into their own, as their smaller stature allows them to navigate right into the depths of the stunning fjords where many of the larger lines simply cannot reach.


“This tempting new offer means that guests can sail alongside the sheer cliffs, towering mountains, mighty waterfalls and rolling valleys of the Norwegian fjords next year without the worry of a bar bill to settle at the end of their holiday.”


Fred. Olsen has included the following phenomenal Norwegian fjords itineraries in 2019 in this offer:
