Fred. Olsen issues ‘Around the World 2018/19 with Sydney at New Year’ brochure

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ new dedicated ‘Around the World 2018/19 with Sydney New Year’ brochure details a 107-night itinerary that takes in Sydney’s New Year’s Eve fireworks, the jungles of Costa Rica and Komodo Dragons in their natural habitat.

The ‘World Cruise’ in November 2018, on the smaller, more intimate Black Watch, departs Southampton on November 12 and visits a total of 35 ports in 22 countries.

Justin Stanton, the line's sales and marketing director, said: “We are delighted to be offering guests the chance to take a once-in-a-lifetime holiday on board Black Watch, circling the globe from late 2018. Every stop on this unique voyage to the Americas, Oceania, Asia, Arabia and the Mediterranean will be simply unforgettable; topped-off by an extended stay in Sydney, planned to coincide with the city’s spectacular New Year celebrations – the first time that we have visited at this fun-packed time of the year.”

Black Watch crosses the Atlantic from Funchal in Madeira to St. John’s, Antigua. The ship continues to Colombia, before transiting the Panama Canal and exploring the Polynesian islands, and arriving in Sydney on New Year’s Eve, for a two-night stay.

The cruise skirts along eastern Australia and the Great Barrier Reef, then onto Komodo Island in Indonesia – home to the Komodo Dragons – Singapore, Phuket in Thailand, Kerala, Goa and Mumbai in India, for an overnight stay. Black Watch then calls at Dubai in the UAE, Muscat in Oman and Aqaba in Jordan, for another overnight stay.

A transit of the Suez Canal follows, before the ship navigates the Strait of Messina through to Naples en route to Southampton, via Gibraltar and La Coruňa in Spain. Prices lead in at £11,999 per person based on two sharing a twin-bedded Interior room. It includes accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, plus port taxes.

The line is offering savings of up to £960 per person off the cruise price or free door-to-door transfers for up to 250 mainland UK miles each way for bookings made by April 30. To book, quote the code W1825MAR when calling 01473-746164 or see fredolsencruises.com/travel-agent-centre
