Fred Olsen VIP voyage: Going above and beyond

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines VIP fam trip

Borealis arrives in Tórshavn for a bonus port of call, as Fred Olsen Cruise Lines once again demonstrates its commitment to going above and beyond for its guests.

Agents on Fred Olsen’s VIP fam trip today explored the capital city of the Faroe Islands.

The stop in Tórshavn was quickly arranged by the cruise line following the cancellation of the previous port, Seyðisfjörður, due to bad weather.

However, this is not some sort of special treatment – it simply encapsulates how Fred Olsen treats all its guests.

The group walked through the old town, spotting many quirky sights along the way, including the wooden grass-roofed houses.

As Fred Olsen Travel assistant manager Tom Holland puts its: “I love it when an unfortunate turn of events turns into something positive.

“The whole Fred Olsen team has pulled together to organise fun activities. Yesterday, we had dinner in Colours & Tastes, one of the speciality restaurants.

“The cuisine was exquisite. In my opinion it was better than what I’ve experienced with some high-end luxury cruise lines. And then, today, we were lucky enough to wake up in Tórshavn.

“A big thank you to everyone at Fred Olsen. Once again, the line’s commitment to its values has been proven.”

Newmarket Holidays’ Stephanie Blackmun adds: “The sun came out for us upon our unexpected arrival in Tórshavn. What a beautiful place, with its multi-coloured houses and old town. It was great to be able to explore.”

Lisette Barnes, from Lincolnshire Coop Travel, was equally delighted with the short but sweet visit, saying: “The city is quite quirky, with its grass-covered houses and personal touches. On the plus side, the weather was kind to us, too.”

“I’m so glad we were able to visit Tórshavn,” says Fred Holidays marketing and creative design executive Brogan Doyle. “It was a lovely walk through the pretty streets and the peaceful national park. It was another wonderful day with a lovely group of people.”
