New Hand-Crafted Sailings For Summer 2023 – Fred Olsen

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has unveiled a new programme of cruising for summer 2023, offering a host of scenic sailings, cultural discoveries and port calls that coincide with special events ashore.

The new sailings feature the chance to explore the Adriatic’s lesser-known cities of Durrës in Albania, Neum in Bosnia and Koper in Slovenia; witness the Midnight Sun in sailings to Arctic Norway and Spitsbergen; and sail the Amalfi Coast at sunrise and sunset.

Fred. Olsen is already developing an immersive programme of shore excursions for these new sailings, including opportunities to make Pasteis de Nata in Lisbon, the city from which they famously hail, and hike Bergen’s Mount Floyen with a local resident, away from the typical tourist vantage points.

Guests will be able to take advantage of up to £250 per person to spend on board, or up to £500 per person when booking a suite. In addition, on selected July and August 2023 cruises, there is the option to add a third guest from £199 when sharing with two others, plus a number of no single supplement offers for solo travellers too.

The new programme offers more than 40 sailings departing between June and October 2023, with regional departures available from Southampton, Dover, London Tilbury, Liverpool, Newcastle, Rosyth and Belfast.

A few highlights of Fred. Olsen’s new Summer 2023 programme include:
