Register for our Advent Calendar

Merry Christmas to one and all, and welcome back to the Cruise Trade News advent calendar.

There are many festive season traditions, including here at Cruise Trade News with our special cruise-themed advent calendar. This special initiative, in partnership with Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, offers a large dose of fun, as well as fantastic prizes to win and sign off the year in style.

The calendar, running from 1 December to Christmas Eve, will operate in both print and digital formats to provide a true multi-platform experience.

You could win:

  • Cuddly elephant toys
  • Fred Olsen branded holdalls
  • Eco refillable coffee cups
  • Branded water bottles
  • Vouchers
  • Fred Olsen backpacks
  • The big prizes: Two cruises, of up to seven nights, on board Bolette or Borealis, in suite accommodation, taking place in 2023

Cruise Trade News editor Gary Peters said: “As we all know, Christmas is a unique and special time of year, and our advent calendar will hopefully make it that little bit extra special for many of you. So, get involved and good luck winning the prizes.”

Fred Olsen head of sales Geoff Ridgeon added: “As we approach the end of the year, it’s a great opportunity to reflect – and what a year it has been. It has been a year of many highs for our industry, and it is great to see the world of travel back on its feet again.

“I know I say it every year, but we simply couldn’t do what we do without you, as agents, and this is the perfect way for us to say thank you for all of your support, and to help spread a little bit of festive cheer in the days leading up to Christmas.”
