Fred. Olsen Launches Great-Value Group Offer

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched a great-value solo offer for groups on board its 156-guest river cruise ship, Brabant, for 2018. For a limited period only, Fred. Olsen solo guests can enjoy a twin room all to themselves with a reduced sole-occupancy supplement of just 25%.

All guests need to do to take advantage of this fantastic solo deal is to book their twin room on one of Fred. Olsen’s six selected European river cruises by 30th November 2017 inclusive.

Fred.

Fred. Olsen river cruise guests can choose to wander along the peaceful canals of the Petite France quarter in Strasbourg, take a trip from Koblenz to explore the mighty Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, from where they can take a cable car ride over the Rhine, or perhaps cruise past the Hassberge Mountains, decorated with rural castles, noble palaces and charming towns.

Built in 2006, 110-metre-long Brabant is a stylish and comfortable river cruise ship, and has everything that guests will need to make their holiday a memorable one: from bright and spacious public areas, to well-equipped bedrooms and ample deck space, from which to enjoy the superb views. With just four decks – Haydn Deck 1, Strauss Deck 2, Mozart Deck 3 and Sun Deck 4 – and fewer than 80 rooms and suites, staffed by 40 crew members, Brabant has the intimate and friendly feel that Fred. Olsen’s guests know and love.

Brabant’s classic design is smaller than many river ships, so guests will enjoy the usual hallmarks of Fred. Olsen’s ‘closer’ approach to cruising. In keeping with Fred. Olsen’s ocean-going fleet, this smaller-scaled vessel has the style, atmosphere and elegance of a country house hotel. Cherry wood interiors and contemporary colours combine to make guests feel relaxed from the moment that they step on board. Juliette balconies with panoramic windows are a feature of many of the rooms, so that guests can enjoy expansive views of Europe’s most impressive waterways.
