Celebrate on Your Cruise Holiday
Birthday, Anniversary? Why not treat yourself, and the people you care for, to one of our extra special celebration packages?
Celebrating a wedding anniversary or a special birthday should always be a great occasion – but a Fred. Olsen cruise gives you the chance to make it extra special. Whichever cruise ship you are on, we’ll do everything we can to help you celebrate in style. Our crew will be delighted to make this an unforgettable cruise holiday, because if it’s special for you, it’s special for us.
Whether they are cruising with or without you, surprise the ones you love with our Welcome Aboard package. A card will be placed in the cabin to say who the gift is from, or you can forward your own message. This cruise ship package includes a floral bouquet on arrival, sparkling wine and canapés, handmade chocolate and a fruit basket. The price is £60 per package.
