Ipswich, United Kingdom, October 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Cruise experts at influential consumer website Cruise Critic have voted Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines ‘Best Value for Money’ in the fifth annual ‘2013 Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Picks Awards’, for the second consecutive year. The winners are selected by Cruise Critic’s international team of Editors, based on the lines and ships that they feel best represent excellence in each of the 18 designated categories.
Fred. Olsen was also voted ‘Best Affordable Cruise Line’ in the prestigious ‘Cruise International Awards 2013’, for the second year running.
Commenting on Fred. Olsen’s win in the ‘Best Value for Money’ category, the ‘2013 Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Picks Awards’ Editors said:
“When it comes to drinks packages, Fred. Olsen leaves the competition standing, with an extraordinarily good value all-inclusive drinks offer for the 2014/2015 season. If you don’t opt for the package, you'll pay UK pub prices for beers and wines. The line offers deeply discounted supplements for solo cruisers and overall, keenly priced fares.”
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is delighted to have been recognised as offering the best value cruises in the industry by the knowledgeable Cruise Critic experts, for the second year in a row.
“Readers of Cruise International magazine also judged us to be the ‘Best Affordable Cruise Line’ in 2013 and 2012, so our message of taking our guests to the most exciting locations on earth at a consistently competitive price is clearly getting through!”
Fred. Olsen has been helping guests to budget for their cruise holidays and benefit from significant cost savings with its ‘all-inclusive’ drinks package, introduced last September, where guests can choose from a selection of discounted drinks on board for an extremely competitive per person, per night rate.
