Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines on October 22 marked one year until its new-look fleet gets together for the first time, celebrating in Portugal’s capital, Lisbon.

On October 22, 2021, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' 4 ships Balmoral, Bolette, Borealis, and Braemar will host ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’, with support from the Port and organizations within the city.

It is the 3rd time that Fred. Olsen has hosted such an event, but the first time with new vessels Bolette and Borealis, which joined the fleet earlier in 2020.

The sailings are featured in the Virtual Cruising program on Fred. Olsen Facebook page, and until November 6 guests can book with up to GBP 150 off the advertised price via quoting “VCOFFER”.

The ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’ sailings include:

  • Braemar’s 27-night ‘Iconic Sites of Croatia & Italy’ voyage, departing from Southampton UK on September 30, 2021. Prices start from GBP 3,800 per person.
  • Balmoral’s 16-night ‘Heritage Sites of the Med’ voyage, departing from Newcastle on October 12, 2021. Prices start from GBP 2,000 per person.
  • Borealis’ 15-night ‘Exploring the Azores and Portugal’ voyage, departing from Liverpool on October 18, 2021. Prices start from GBP 2,000 per person.
  • Bolette’s 15-night ‘Escape to the Canaries’ voyage, departing from Dover on October 18, 2021. Prices start from GBP 1,900 per person.

The event was named ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’ by passengers following a vote as part of Fred. Olsen's Virtual Cruising programme in June. There were 3 names to choose from – ‘Four Fred.s in Lisbon’, ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’, ‘Four B’s in Lisbon’ – as well as the chance for voters to suggest their own.
