Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests cruise deals from £67 per person, per night on Black Watch.
A series of seven cruises from Tyneside are available through to October on a variety of worldwide itineraries – from a seven-night ‘Norwegian Fjords’ cruise to a 15-night ‘Canary Islands’ sailing.
Guests taking advantage of the deals from Newcastle can choose to upgrade to the ‘all-inclusive’ drinks package for a special price of £10 per person, per night. The deal includes selected wines, spirits beers and soft drinks, while premium branded drinks are available at half price.
The line will also be offering guests its exclusive ‘Enjoyment Promise’ to encourage people to try cruising. Under the promise, people who have never cruised with the company before will be able to try a cruise and, if they do not enjoy it, will be flown home and refunded their cruise fare. The promise is valid for bookings made at least 14 weeks in advance, and does not apply to cruises of six nights or less, or with a duration greater than 35 nights.
The line's sales and marketing director, Nathan Philpot, said: “We have made a considerable investment in adding our unique branding to the Port of Tyne’s International Passenger Terminal, and we are committed to our cruise programme in the North East. We will be offering an even greater number of cruise departures from Newcastle in 2015, with eight in total, and we are happy to be making our own contribution to the estimated £54million that the cruise industry generates for the economy in the North East each year.”
As an example of prices, a 14-night ‘Stockholm & St. Petersburg’ cruise, ex Newcastle departs on September 14 and costs from £999 per person. Ports of call include Oslo, Stockholm, Tallinn, St. Petersburg and Travemünde.
