Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched its multi-strand ‘Cruise Sale’ today, as part of its New Year promotional campaign.
The new promotion incorporates two offers: ‘Free upgrade to the ‘all-inclusive’ drinks package’ and ‘No single-supplements’ and is valid for bookings made until March 1, 2017.
Members of Fred. Olsen’s Oceans loyalty club booking between 1 and December 1 and 27, 2016 can take advantage of an exclusive booking period for two additional offers as part of its new ‘Cruise Sale’ – ‘Free on shore spending money’ and ‘Free door-to-door transfers’ – after which time they will be available on general sale until January 31, 2017.
Neil Herbert, head of sales at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
‘Our fantastic new ‘Cruise Sale’ has been designed to reward loyal Fred. Olsen guests, as well as targeting single-cruise bookers and removing any barriers for first-time cruisers.
“With the recent changes in the political landscape, holidaymakers have been exercising a certain amount of caution when booking foreign travel. To try to alleviate any concerns that they may have, our new ‘Cruise Sale’ focusses on ensuring that we continue to offer great value-for-money and that those all-important holiday ‘extras’ are covered, allowing guests to relax, safe in the knowledge that almost everything is included in their cruise price.
“We are also aiming to appeal to the growing ‘solo traveller’ market; 40% of over 55s in the UK now describe themselves as single, and Fred. Olsen offers more rooms for solos than any other cruise line.”
In its New Year ‘Cruise Sale’, Fred. Olsen guests can book any 2017/18 cruise of five-nights’ duration or longer and benefit from a ‘Free upgrade to the ‘all-inclusive’ drinks package’*, available until 1st March 2017.
Fred. Olsen is offering guests a ‘No single-supplements’ deal on a selection of 10 2017/18 cruise holidays**, available until 1st March 2017. A solo traveller can book from a selection of twin room grades without having to pay any sole-occupancy charge. Destinations available include Norway, the Caribbean, Spain, the Baltic and South America.
In addition to these two sales initiatives, Fred. Olsen is also promoting ‘Free on shore spending money’ on 16 voyages in 2017, available until January 31, 2017, and also ‘Free door to-door’ transfers and an ‘Enjoyment Promise’.
