First time cruisers looking for a taster cruise with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines can now take a one-night voyage without having to take out cruise travel insurance policy.

Throughout its 2017/18 cruise season, the line is offering a selection of short UK ‘taster cruises', which allow guests to stay on its ships for one night to enjoy a 'snapshot' of the facilities and a cruise holiday, experiencing a five-course dinner, entertainment and accommodation.

Neil Herbert, head of sales for the cruise line, said: “We are always looking to attract new-to-cruise customers and to make the cruising experience as easy and straightforward as possible. Our range of one-night taster cruises offer the perfect opportunity for potential cruisers to sample our product, without committing too much time or money. And, with the news that travel insurance is no longer required on these sailings, we hope to attract even more first-timers to try out our friendly and relaxed holidays.”

To further remove a barrier for guests looking for a taster cruise, but who do not hold a current passport, the range of short sailings do not require a valid passport. Instead, guests can choose another form of photographic ID at check-in.
