Fred Olsen launches Limassol cruises

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines have instructed Century Travel as their representative in Cyprus for sales of their Worldwide cruises.


Fred Olsen Cruise Lines prides itself on bringing the world ‘closer’ to its guests, made possible by the smaller, more intimate, size of its four ocean ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – and it’s river boat Brabant.


In 2018, the cruise lines celebrated its 170th anniversary of shipping, with its heritage beginning in 1848 when Olsen brothers Frederik Christian, Petter and Andreas Olsen purchased their first ships operating from Hvisten, Norway. Since then the company has seen considerable growth, operating cargo vessels and cruise ships around the world. The company is now in its fifth generation of the Olsen family, with Fred. Olsen Jnr as Chairman.


In 2019/20, Fred. Olsen will be visiting no fewer than 219 destinations in 75 countries around the globe, including calls to and from Limassol, aboard 880-guest Boudicca.


The Boudicca has built up a loyal following of guests who appreciate a sense of class and timeless elegance not seen or experienced on modern ‘megaships’. On board, in keeping with the Fred. Olsen fleet, the emphasis is on providing an intimate and more traditional cruise experience, with guests disembarking after their relaxing and rewarding holiday as friends, not just guests.


Michelle Tingley, Specialist Sales for Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said: ‘We recognise the demand for cruise departures from Limassol and are delighted to appoint Century Travel as our representative in Cyprus because of their specialist knowledge of cruising in the region.  We look forward to carrying many passengers from Cyprus in 2019, 2020 and beyond.’


‘We have been working hard over the last couple of years to bring as many cruise lines to Cyprus as we can’ says Vicky Lewis, Head of Operations for Century Travel. ‘Our clients want more choice and a selection of itineraries, as well as longer voyages.  The introduction of cruises with Fred Olsen now brings the total to 3 cruise lines and we are excited to bring more departures to those living in Cyprus.’
