Shearings Holidays expands its ocean cruise programme

Shearings Holidays has grown its ocean cruise programme for 2020 with the introduction of Fred Olsen Cruises, CroisiEurope and three additional worldwide cruise and tour itineraries.

The tour operator continues to offer a selection of cruises from CMV onboard MV Columbus and MS Magellan. Eleven itineraries are currently on sale across both ships including a three-day 'Dublin Mini-Cruise' departing from Liverpool onboard MS Magellan and an eight-day 'Majestic Fjordland' cruise, departing from London Tilbury onboard MV Columbus.
