Fred. Olsen have announced that four of their Canary Islands and exotic cruises will be all-inclusive in 2013. The four sailings are onboard the Braemar and must be booked by July 31st 2012.
The all-inclusive package includes house wines and spirits, beers and soft drinks, though excursions and premium drinks will be charged onboard. The price also includes the return flights from Tenerife to London Gatwick or Manchester and transfers to and from the ship. Gratuities and additional extras such as spa treatments will also carry an onboard charge.
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: "We know that many of our guests are on a tight budget in these difficult times, and we are delighted that we can offer this very generous inclusive price for four of our exciting new fly-cruise itineraries — including African Beaches and Tropical Islands and Morocco, Madeira and the Canaries — which will be departing from London Gatwick and Manchester airports between 17th February and 17th March 2013.
With this added drinks package, these cruises offer exceptional value for money and it will be easier for our guests to budget and allow more leeway for spending on other holiday extras, such as shore excursions. We would advise guests to book early to make sure that they can take advantage of these excellent deals!"

With Fred. Olsen following in the footsteps of several other cruise lines that have chosen to add all-inclusive to their ships — whether as part of the cruise or as a pre-bookable extra — there has been a real shift of late in the cruise industry to offer even greater value onboard. These winter sun sailings to exotic locations are bound to be popular and the inclusion of house drinks to the package only make them more appealing. The biggest question is which cruise to pick?
