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

“It is fair to say that we were expecting a very encouraging start to the launch of our exciting new 2016/17 cruise programme, but these levels of customer demand are quite unprecedented.

“What these excellent booking volumes show is that – as I said at our PR Launch event in London last week – Fred. Olsen is all about ‘destination, destination, destination’, and this is what cruise customers are most interested in. It is not about the ship; it is not about the amenities on board; it is about where guests can go and what they can experience.”

In 2016/17, Fred. Olsen will be visiting a record 253 ports in 84 countries around the globe. A key factor in Fred. Olsen’s booking success is its focus upon ‘bringing the world closer to you’, sailing from a total of ten convenient, regional UK departure ports: Southampton, Dover, Harwich, Tilbury, Falmouth – a new addition – Liverpool, Newcastle – where flagship Balmoral will be based in 2016 – Rosyth (for Edinburgh), Greenock (for Glasgow) and Belfast.

Coming in as the Number One best-seller in Fred. Olsen’s new 2016 cruise programme is Braemar’s ten-night ‘German Waterways’ cruise, which will sail along three German rivers – the Elbe, the Weser and the Trave – as well as taking in a canal and a fjord, at Flensburg.
