Fred Olsen amends world cruise itinerary

Date Posted: 01 May 2009
Category:
Fred Olsen Cruise has announced that it has changed the itinerary for its 106-night Balmoral world cruise next year.

The move will see the vessel avoid sailing through the Gulf of Arden as a result of security issues in the region.

Previously, the ship was due to stop off at ports in the Indian Ocean, but will cross it from Fremantle in Australia instead.

Matt Grimes, director of planning for the cruise line, said the safety and wellbeing of passengers and staff members was a prime concern, adding that the cruise will return to Dover as scheduled on April 21st.

"Although our passengers will no longer visit places such as Dubai and Salalah, their cruise experience will include the breathtaking beauty of Mauritius and South Africa," he commented.

The company recently launched a mini-brochure featuring a number of northerly destinations for summer and autumn 2009, including the Baltic states, Lapland and the Norwegian fjords.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
