Having swept the board in last year’s first-ever ‘Cruise International Awards’, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is calling upon its loyal guests and fans to show their support once again, with the chance to win a number of attractive prizes, including a luxurious week-long holiday in Fort Lauderdale, Florida – so there’s no excuse not to vote!
Fred. Olsen won the hotly-contested accolade of ‘Cruise Line of the Year’ in the 2011 awards, which attracted some 180,000 votes from readers of Cruise International magazine and keen cruise customers, across 20 categories. The cruise line was also voted ‘Best Educational Cruise’ for its Vistas onboard enrichment programme – which has featured the likes of The Archers and an Agatha Christie-themed cruise – and ‘Best Live Performance’ for classical duo, The OperaBabes, who electrified audiences on board Black Watch’s Mediterranean cruise in October 2010 and on Braemar’s ‘Spain and Portugal’ M1123 in October 2011.
Nathan Philpot, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Sales and Marketing Director, said:
“We were delighted to have been voted ‘Cruise Line of the Year’ in the inaugural ‘Cruise International Awards’, and we are hoping that the Fred. Olsen fans out there will get behind us once again and show their support.
“The feedback from our guests is that they continue to enjoy our wide range of exciting destinations – to no fewer than 240 destinations in 78 countries in the 2013 / 14 cruise programme, featuring 12 new ports – and we remain dedicated to being the ‘local global cruise line of choice’, with more departures from convenient, regional UK ports than any other cruise line. Thank you for voting for us!”
