Silversea CruisesJune 02 - 2010 : FRED. OLSEN CRUISES TO ICELAND PROVING

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has confirmed that both of its cruises sailing later this summer visiting ports of call in Iceland, are continuing to sell well. With the effects of the volcanic ash cloud having disrupted air travel in and out of the UK and across Europe in recent weeks, travel to the area by cruise ship is regarded as the best way to visit that part of the Arctic.

The cruises, both on the 804-passenger Black Watch, depart from Southampton in early August, and early September, with the August cruise having the additional benefit of Photography as The ArtsClub subject, hosted by self taught freelance photographer Paul Howard.

Black Watch cruise W1013 is a 15-night Greenland and Iceland cruise, departing from Southampton on 7th August, 2010. Ports of call are Qaqortoq, Narsarsuaq and Nanortalik (all in Greenland), and Isafjordur and Reykjavik (Iceland). The cruise returns to Southampton on 22nd September.

The ArtsClub is Fred. Olsen’s programme of special interest cruises, which are free of charge and cannot be pre-booked. Passengers are free to dip in and out of the lectures and activities as they please. On this cruise, the advice and guidance of a photography expert Paul Howard should prove very useful for passengers in order to make the most of the spectacular flora and fauna that might be seen. Prices for this cruise currently start at £1,094 per person for an inside twin-bedded cabin.

The second Iceland cruise is 12-nights’ duration, and runs from 5th to 17th September, 2010. Ports of call are Heimaey, Reykjavik, Isafjordur, Akureyri (all in Iceland), and then Alesund, Bergen and Farsund which are Norwegian ports. Prices for this cruise start at £1,335 per person in an inside twin-bedded cabin.

All prices include accommodation, meals and entertainment on board, and all port taxes. For more information on these, and all Fred. Olsen cruises, log on to the website For reservations visit the website or call Fred. Olsen reservations on 01473 742424, or see your travel agent.
