Fred Olsen Summer Cruises
We know that, for many of you, a summer holiday is the highlight of the year; an escape from the stress and strain of daily life, or simply the chance to enjoy some spectacular sunshine and scenery in some of the most beautiful and sought-after destinations on earth.
With this is mind, we’ve created a fantastic summer cruise programme packed with a wide choice of sailings, making the most of our fleet of smaller, more intimate ships to bring an abundance of unforgettable sights and experiences closer to you. There are cruises from 7 local UK ports – departing from May to September 2016 – and a smorgasbord of destinations to choose from, so we’re sure you’ll find the perfect summer break.
You could discover historic and attraction-packed cities in France and Spain; cruise Germany’s incredible Kiel Canal and beautiful Weser and Elbe Rivers; immerse yourself in the outstanding natural beauty of Canada or the Norwegian fjords; soak up the Canaries’ soothing sunshine; explore the breathtaking islands of the Adriatic with a call to enchanting Venice thrown in for good measure and much more. There’s even an incredible circumnavigation of the home isles, taking in some of Britain and Ireland’s most iconic historic sites and scenic delights.
And, as usual, you’ll find there’s ample room to relax and enjoy your holiday on board, cruising with hundreds – not thousands – of like-minded guests, and enjoy a high level of personal, attentive service from our friendly staff no matter which of these expertly crafted cruises you choose. Plus, with great value fares on offer and almost everything included in the price, you can book with confidence knowing you’re getting a fantastic deal.
The sparkle of the light on your wine glass; the perfectly seasoned meal you won’t forget; the personal greeting from your stateroom steward. Just like you, Cunard know that luxury’s all about making time for you to savour new experiences, in impeccable style. That’s why you don’t have to imagine a cruise with the highest standards of service, iconic journeys and amazing entertainment, you can experience it for yourself aboard Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria or Queen Mary 2.
Cunard believe great service is warm and sincere, never stuffy or pretend. Always friendly, yet never over-familiar. There for you when you call, otherwise almost imperceptible. At Cunard, we call it White Star Service because it's a shining example of how best to treat every guest.
The Cunard Fare offers you flexibility, 15% deposit, prioritised choice of dining and stateroom and additional benefits, including complimentary on board spending money.
Whatever you like to dine on, you’ll find it on Cunard’s menus. Healthy, hearty, light or haute cuisine, everything’s delicious and there’s an array of places to eat. You can even sample local flavours while you’re at sea as Cunard’s chefs like to source fresh ingredients, wherever you are in the world.
Grill Suites are the epitome of luxury at sea. With bespoke dining, personalised service (including your own butler in Queens Grill suites) and an exclusive lounge and terrace, everything’s designed around you. It’s the kind of experience you’ve been dreaming of.
