Fred Olsen Cruise Lines is offering a free all-inclusive drinks package or no single supplement on a selection of its ‘Welcome Back’ sailings.
The line is running six cruises on new ships Borealis and Bolette, with departures available from Liverpool or Dover.
Some itineraries include ports of call, including Falmouth and Portland in the south, or the northerly ports of Lerwick and Kirkwall.
Guests can choose between an all inclusive drinks package, offering selected house wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks, and their tips covered, or no single supplement on each cruise. Solo sailings start from £699.
The offer runs until Tuesday 8 June.
Fred Olsen Cruise Lines director of product and customer service Clare Ward said: “This summer is set to be like no other when it comes to holidaying in the UK. Adding an all inclusive drinks package is a great way to help our guests make the most of their time with us, and to enjoy the many facilities and new venues we have on board our new ships. We also have a selection of cruises with no single supplements, designed especially for our solo travellers.
“Experts from marine wildlife charity ORCA will join us aboard for our scenic no port sailings this summer, with our British waters known to be frequented by common, Risso’s and bottlenose dolphins, as well as harbour porpoises and minke whales.
“A cruise offers a unique way to see so many wonderful destinations right on our doorstep.”
Speaking to CTN in a recent interview, Fred Olsen head of sales Geoff Ridgeon said: “It can be very easy to overlook all the wonderful experiences that immediately surround us. We have a real opportunity to showcase our home turf this year.
“Many people may look to try a cruise for the first time this year, as an alternative to an overseas land-based holiday.”
