Fred. Olsen drops Caribbean fly-cruise

Fred. Olsen drops Caribbean fly-cruise

Fred. Olsen has revealed plans to withdraw from the Caribbean fly-cruise program due to rising costs of air travel, together with the high cost of Air Passenger Duty (APD).

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’  Braemar will operate cruises exclusively from UK ports, following the conclusion of her winter 2011/12 Caribbean season.

The ship has operated a winter fly-cruise program, for its British passengers, flying from the UK to Barbados, since she joined the Fred. Olsen fleet in 2001.

The end of departing from Barbados will not mean an end to Caribbean cruising with Fred. Olsen and the choice of destination areas visited will not be reduced, according to the Cruise Liner..
