Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched its most exciting, innovative and unique cruise yet! Braemar’s 15-night ‘You Choose The Next Port of Call’ sailing, which departs from Southampton on 10th October 2015, is a brand-new concept for Fred. Olsen, and quite possibly within the cruise industry as a whole. Guests on board will get to ‘tell the Captain where to go’, as they vote for the next port of call as the cruise progresses, from two choices every 48 hours.
This incredibly exciting and innovative cruise gives Fred. Olsen guests the chance to ‘steer the ship’! Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, are always striving to offer guests a special cruise experience and this is certainly a very different type of holiday! And with a host of warm and sunny Mediterranean destinations to choose from, guests on board this fun cruise will not be disappointed!”
The first decision that guests will make on this ‘curiosity cruise’ is whether to point Braemar towards Vigo in Spain, or Leixoes in Portugal. Vigo is a fascinating old town where guests can visit the historic quarter, Cidade Vella, with its many narrow streets and quaint, interesting museums. From Leixoes, guests can visit Oporto – which was recently voted as the ‘Best European Destination 2014’ by European Consumers Choice – famous for its rich Port wine.
Next on this ‘first for Fred.’ cruise is a choice between Andalucian Malaga in Spain, where guests can visit the Alhambra Palace and Granada, or indulge in one of the local tapas bars, or they can opt for Gibraltar, with its unique blend of Anglo-Spanish culture and tax free shopping!
Braemar will then cruise to either the vibrant and cosmopolitan Gaudi-inspired city of Barcelona (Spain), where guests can enjoy some of the local bars and restaurants, or they can choose to visit traditional Palamós, on the Spanish Costa Brava.
The options continue, with a host of Spanish ports, choosing between either cultural Valencia or Mallorca’s cathedral city of Palma; then they must decide between the pleasant, ancient city of Cartagena, or the classic Costa Blanca harbour city of Alicante.
Guests will then pick between Andalusian Cadiz (Spain), for tours to beautiful Seville, with its traditional heritage of art and architecture, or opt to visit the Algarve region of Portugal, with a call into Portimão. In this western area of the Algarve, guests can take in the beautiful beaches or go shopping at one of the local boutiques.
The final choice for guests on this unusual cruise is the Galician city of Ferrol in Spain or La Coruna, also in Spain, with its stunning old town; from here, guests can take a tour to UNESCO-listed Santiago de Compostela Cathedral.
Prices for this intriguing ‘cruise with a difference’ start from just $2,259 per person, based on two adults sharing a twin, ‘Inside’ cabin, and includes accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, plus port fees.
Fred. Olsen is also offering guests the chance to save on multiple cruise bookings; if they book before 7th May 2014, they can benefit from 20% off two cruises, and if they buy three or more cruises, they can save 30%.*”
