Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has today unveiled a brand new programme of cruising for 2022/23, with 126 new cruises taking in 82 countries, including 26 new sailings from Liverpool.
The programme, which has been released to Oceans members today ahead of general on sale on Monday, includes closer to home excursions around the British Isles; shorter, five-night breaks and a number of sailings for those looking to venture further afield.
Plus, those booking onto the new cruises can choose between a free all inclusive drinks package or money to spend on board.
Martin Lister, Head of Itinerary Planning and Destination Experience at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“We are always incredibly proud to unveil our new cruise programmes, but this year it feels particularly exciting as it is the first time we will do so with our new look fleet.
“Every year we craft our new itineraries from scratch to ensure that we continue to offer our guests exceptional experiences in the destinations they visit with us. This has felt even more important this year, with the past 12 months having left us all dreaming of our next adventures and really considering what we all want from our holidays.
“A big part of 2022 will be making the most of our beautiful British Isles, with scenic cruising just as rewarding as the wonderful ports of call.
“For those looking to set sail on a shorter cruise, there are plenty on offer, each with the opportunity to experience time ashore, entertainment-packed sea days and scenic cruising aplenty.
“Our ships really come into their own in the Norwegian fjords, and of course we are continuing to celebrate that. Aboard our smaller-sized fleet, guests will be able sail size-restricted waters, away from the well-sailed route, right into the heart of the fjordlands.
“But the shorter escapes are not just bound to Norway, with sailings to Belgium and France also available in seven nights or less, made possible by the impressive sailing speeds of our new ship
“We also have some exceptional sailings further afield for those ready to explore the world again, taking in the rugged beauty of Canada, the warmer climates of Cape Verde and Morocco, and even the chance to follow in the footsteps of Phileas Fogg with an around the world cruise.”
