Fred Olsen launches new travel ready service

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines launches Travel Ready Service

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has launched its new Travel Ready Service to reassure guests regarding future cruises with the line.

As part of the package, Fred Olsen will take care of the necessary guest paperwork, including passenger locator forms and NHS vaccination letters. The cruise line will also order any tests that will be required.

Guests can add the service to their booking three weeks before departure, to ensure Fred Olsen “can act on the most up-to-date travel requirements for each destination”.

Prices for the service start from £49pp.

Fred Olsen director of product and customer service Clare Ward said: “We know that there continues to be change when it comes to travel just now, and we don’t want that to be a barrier to exploring the world again.

“We want our guests to look forward to their cruise from the moment they make their booking, whether they are looking to seek out the Northern Lights, explore a European city on a short break or venture further afield.

“With our Travel Ready Service they can feel reassured that, should any requirements change in the days leading up to, during or after their cruise, we will have it covered.

“Guests can let us know in the three weeks before they sail if they wish to add this to their booking, so we can make sure the guidance is as up-to-date as possible.

“Knowing they can add this package before they sail allows them to book with confidence and look forward to their holiday with peace of mind.”

Fred Olsen is also offering risk-free deposits on all new bookings for sailings in 2022.

Guests will be able to move their deposits to any other cruise within 12 months of their original sailing with no transfer fees. The only requirement is that Fred Olsen needs to be notified before the final balance has been paid.

In late December 2021, Fred Olsen announced it will repeat its record-breaking transit of the Corinth Canal in May 2023.
