Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Launches "world Cruises 2014" Promotion

Suffolk, United Kingdom, March 27, 2013 --( Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is making it even more attractive to take a "Voyage of a Lifetime" in early 2014 with a promotional offer on its two "World Cruise" on Balmoral and Black Watch, on bookings made for the full cruises from 16th March 2013.

Fares will be available on selected cabin grades from as little as £6,999 per person*, with savings of up to 25%. Bookings can be secured with a special low deposit of just £750 per person deposit, and cabin numbers can be chosen by guests at the time of booking.

Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, we have always been proud of our focus on bringing our guests closer to the destinations that they really want to visit, and giving them experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.

“With this special promotion on our exciting 2014 'World Cruises', on our flagship Balmoral and our most traditional ship, Black Watch, there is something for every kind of Fred. Olsen cruiser, and we are pleased to be able to offer an even more cost-effective way to see the world with us."

Fred. Olsen's two epic cruises in 2014 will be Balmoral's L1401 104-night "Around the World," sailing, departing from Southampton on 5th January 2014, and Black Watch's W1401 114-night "Around the World" odyssey, departing from Southampton on 14th January 2014 – which will be the Fred. Olsen's longest-ever cruise.

The first 100 bookings will receive a Free onboard credit of up to £550 per person.

The offers will be supported by an advertising campaign starting from 16th March 2013.

Although there is no obligation by Fred. Olsen to do so, the cruise line will be rewarding existing guests who booked early by offering complimentary cabin upgrades**, free onboard spending credit or a combination of both to the value of the difference between their existing booking and the new promotional fares.

In 2014, Fred. Olsen's "World Cruise" on Balmoral will be making maiden calls at Yangon, capital of Burma (now Myanmar), Osaka and Hiroshima in Japan, and Nawiliwili in Hawaii.

* Promotional fares will be available on A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H and I grades on Balmoral only, and on JS, B, C, D, E, F, H and I grades on Black Watch, subject to availability.
