Fred Olsen Cruise Lines today [Wednesday] unveils its turn-of-year sales push with a triple offer designed to encourage bookings.

The line is offering three cruises for the price of two, a free drinks and gratuities paid deal and up to £100 per person cashback on selected 2016-17 departures.

The promotion is available until March 2, targeting single cruise bookers, multiple cruise purchases and new to cruise bookings.

A £1 deposit is also being introduced for passengers taking their first cruise with the line and who re-book while on board.

Sales and marketing director, Nathan Philpot, said: “Research has shown that 53% of cruisers take more than one cruise holiday per year.

Therefore, with our great-value offer of ‘Three Cruises for the Price of Two’, our loyal guests can plan ahead for 2016/17 by booking all of their holidays, knowing that they are making excellent savings.

Our ‘Free Tips & Tipples’ upgrade also gives guests complete peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that almost everything is covered in the price of their holiday.

“Our exciting cashback offer means that we will credit a guest’s onboard account with up to £100 on 20 selected 2016 cruises, and they can choose to indulge in a spa treatment, a shore excursion or a little shopping in the onboard shops.

“However, if none of that appeals, the amount can also be claimed back as cash at the end of the cruise.”
