Two Fred Olsen cruises in 2012 to feature Jonathan Meades


If you are traveling on a Fred Olsen cruise in 2012 you may be lucky enough to see Jonathan Meades, the popular food critic, speaking while you’re on holiday. He will be a guest speaker on the Black Watch cruise ship, and will feature on two separate cruises, one to the Baltic for 13-nights and one to the Western Mediterranean for 16-nights.

This event will be part of the Vistas programme, which aims to educate cruise ship passengers with no extra cost. You can find out more about Vistas over on Not only can you go on a cruise and relax; you can also come home with a lot more knowledge.

Fred. Olsen’s Baltic cruise will leave Dover on August 20, 2012 and will visit Warnemunde (Germany), then Tallinn in Estonia, St. Petersburg in Russia, Helsinki and Turku in Finland, and finally on to Copenhagen and Aalborg in Denmark.

The Black Watch cruise to Western Mediterranean is another beautiful Fred. Olsen cruise leaving October 23, 2012 and will take you to Spain and Algiers. You can read the full cruise itinerary and more about Jonathan Meades in this article on Fred. Olsen’s official website.
