Fred Olsen unveils 2023/24 programme featuring new Journey Navigators concept

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has released its full 2023/24 programme, featuring more than 100 sailings and the introduction of a new Journey Navigators concept.

Itineraries range from two to 93-nights, with regional departures from Liverpool, Newcastle, Rosyth, Southampton, Dover, London Tilbury and Belfast.

In addition, a fly-cruise programme has been included, with Braemar to be based in the Caribbean for the winter months.

Fred Olsen’s new Journey Navigators programme will see experts such as nature scouts, culture curators, maritime guides and entertainment hosts join guests on board to enhance the experience.

Guests who book a 2023/24 sailing can benefit from up to £250pp to spend on board, or up to £500 when booking a suite.

Plus, those who book a 2023 cruise but are also looking to get away this year can get 10 per cent off any new booking for 2022.

Fred Olsen to offer ‘authentic experiences ashore’

Fred Olsen head of itinerary planning and destination experience Martin Lister said: “This has been such an exciting programme to curate.

“Our smaller ships allow us to offer so many special experiences for our guests, and we’ve been really creative with our itinerary planning to shine a spotlight on this.

“We will be cruising scenic waterways that are out of reach to larger ships, including the Kiel Canal and the Seine and Loire rivers.

“Other highlights include docking close to the heart of Seville, Antwerp and Havana. Braemar is also set to repeat her record-breaking feat of transiting the ultra-narrow Corinth Canal – an experience not to be missed.

“We also know that our guests want to have authentic experiences ashore, and so we are developing a programme to support this.

“In Madeira, for example, rather than simply visit the world-famous gardens, guests can meet with a local orchid expert for a tour of the gardens, including a family-run orchid farm.”

Also in 2023, Fred Olsen will bring together its new-look fleet with a special event in Funchal, Madeira.
