Fred Olsen VIP fam: A memorable cruise for so many reasons

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines VIP fam trip

It’s the final day on the Fred Olsen VIP fam cruise, with agents expressing their gratitude for what has been a memorable 10 days.

The day began with an exclusive chat with the Borealis entertainment team, who explained the work that goes into putting on the incredible shows, night after night.

Following this, some of the group went for a sumptuous afternoon tea, and then took part in a fun-filled treasure hunt around the ship.

Speaking today, agents have been keen to stress their sadness at the trip coming to an end, but also their thanks to Fred Olsen and fellow shipmates for creating a “special” experience.

Brogan Doyle, Fred Holidays marketing and creative design executive, says the tour with the entertainment team made her feel like a “real VIP”.

“It was great to hear from them about their experiences and to see how the amazing shows all come together.”

Lincolnshire Coop Travel’s Lisette Barnes says: “I don’t want our journey to end. It has been an amazing experience.

“Thank you to the Fred Olsen team – they have gone over and above to make our cruise special.

“Every member of crew has been so kind and thoughtful. They will go that extra mile for you, no matter what the request is. It has surpassed my expectations in every way.”

Fred Olsen Travel assistant manager Tom Holland echoes Barnes’ comments, explaining: “Sadly our Fred Olsen journey is coming to an end.

“Today was such a relaxing day, with some more behind-the-scenes encounters and fun activities. This included looking around backstage, which provided an insight into how hard working the entertainment team is.

“We also got to run around the ship for a treasure hunt, and in the afternoon were treated to a food and wine pairing experience with the resident sommelier.

“I will be ending the day with a delicious meal in Vasco with a big smile on my face and a tear in my heart.”

Holland adds that the Fred Olsen team and other agents on board have “made this such a special and memorable trip… we arrived as strangers but will be leaving as friends.”
