Fred Olsen To Refurbish Three Ships

Date Posted: 10 Nov 2014
Category:

Fred Olsen have revealed plans to refurbish Black Watch, Braemar and Balmoral before the end of the year.

In preparation for the 2015/16 season, this is the first time so many Fred Olsen ships have undergone refurbishment within such short succession. All ships will enter Blohm+Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Germany in November and December 2014.

Work has already began on Black Watch who entered the ship yard last week. On completion of her refurbishment she will sail to Tilbury for the first ever ‘Mystery Cruise’ that sold out in record time.

Braemar will begin her refurbishment on 12th November 2014 and Balmoral on 9th December 2014.

Some of the changes include; Black Watch gaining 27 new cabins on Lido Deck 7 with balcony terraces. Balmoral and Braemar will gain ‘Café Venus’ serving high-quility coffee and luxury chocolates.

Mike Rodwell, Managing Director of Fred Olsen Cruise Lines said "We experience extremely high demand for balcony cabins across our fleet, and in particular on board the smaller-sized Black Watch, and our new Balcony Terrace cabins are an innovative response to this. We are also looking forward to being able to give guests the experience of fine coffee and chocolates on board Balmoral and Braemar, as they have already been enjoying on Boudicca and Black Watch."
