Fred. Olsen Silver travel awards 2019

Fred. Olsen Silver travel awards 2019

Fred. Olsen has been named ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ in the prestigious ‘Silver Travel Awards 2019’ – for a record fourth consecutive year. The Awards are run annually by Silver Travel Advisor, an independent travel reviews, information and advice website, especially for mature travellers aged 50 and over. This year’s 'Silver Travel Awards 2019' were held at the home of British film and TV-making, BAFTA, in London and hosted by Dame Esther Rantzen. More than 140,000 votes were cast by the public, in a total of 21 categories overall.

Ellie Fulcher, Group Sales & Affinity Manager at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “Congratulations to our partners Silver Travel Advisor for another amazing awards ceremony, and we would like to thank all those who took the time to vote for us, and our loyal travel agents who continue to recommend our cruises to their customers. It means such a lot to all the team at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines – both at our Head Office and across our fleet – to be recognised in this significant way.

“The 50-plus cruise market is a growing sector, and we are working extremely hard across all the areas of our business to ensure that we continue to deliver the kind of product and offer that our ‘silver travellers’ expect from us, whether it be more exotic itineraries, immersive enrichment programmes, more authentic experiences, or exceptional cuisine.”

Debbie Marshall, Managing Director of Silver Travel Advisor, said: “It’s a privilege and a pleasure to recognise so many great travel players in the Silver Travel Awards. Fred. Olsen – have really stood out for making their products relevant, valued and accessible to the mature traveller.”

All four ships in the Fred. Olsen fleet have a human scale - large enough to be spacious and comfortable, yet sufficiently intimate to remain friendly and relaxed. This company has stuck to its core values, one where passengers can share an unpretentious atmosphere and enjoy camaraderie in the company of a few hundred souls as opposed to a few thousand. A unique facet of the Fred. Olsen Cruises’ fleet is the personable and long-serving crew, many of whom extend a special welcome to repeat passengers returning to their ‘home-away-from-home’.
