Most cruise ship companies favour a certain cruise on their homepage, such as when Disney was showcasing Alaska, and today we thought you would like to know that Fred Olsen is promoting their Istanbul to Southampton cruise on the Balmoral on June 27th, 2014.
It would seem that Fred Olsen still has a few cabins left to sell, as this cruise leaves in less than a month’s time, although this isn’t a bad thing because it gives you a chance to experience a Fred Olsen cruise. Ok, it is not going to be like a Royal Caribbean or Norwegian Cruise Line cruise, as they cater for different clientele.
The cruise in question is a 15-night fly cruise and begins in Istanbul and visits some lovely ports on the way home to Southampton. However, even before you get going you will want to book one of the Fred Olsen shore excursions to visit this amazing city.
Your Fred Olsen Istanbul to Southampton itinerary is as follows: Istanbul, Turkey, Izmir, Turkey, Piraeus (for Athens), Greece, Thira, Santorini, Cagliari, Sardinia, Cartagena, Spain, Lisbon, Portugal and finally, Southampton.
You can see a complete rundown of the pricing on the Fred Olsen website, but we can tell you that prices start from £1,349 with flights or £1,249 without flights.
