Fred. Olsen ships to undergo multi-million refits this winter

Three of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' ships will undergo multi-million pound refits this winter – in preparation for the start of the 2018/19 cruise season.

Two ships – Braemar and Balmoral – will be refurbished before Christmas with the third, Boudicca, upgraded in March 2018. Black Watch, benefitted from extensive improvement work at the end of last year.

Mike Rodwell, managing director of the cruise line, said: “We are very proud of our smaller, classic cruise ships and we recognise the importance of investing in ongoing upgrades to ensure that our guests can continue to enjoy them at their best. The refreshed Black Watch has been very well received by both new and existing guests so we are delighted that the rest of the fleet will also benefit.”

Upgrades will include work on the existing public areas, creating new facilities – such as a new restaurants and gelato bar on Balmoral, a new dining room on Boudicca, a new buffet restaurant on Braemar – and cabin enhancements across the fleet.
