Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has unveiled a Welcome Back programme of British Isles cruises that include both scenic voyages and those calling at ports.
The programme is made up of 11 cruises, including regional departures from Dover and Liverpool.
New ship Borealis will be the first of the fleet to set sail, with a three-night scenic Maiden Voyage from Liverpool on July 5, with Bolette to depart on a three-night ‘Maiden Voyage’ from Dover on August 16.
Peter Deer, managing director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We are so excited to be unveiling these new summer cruises today. So often overlooked, our British Isles are home to some of the most wonderful wildlife, and so much spectacular scenery that is best enjoyed from the water.
“With this selection of shorter sailings, guests can dip their toes back into cruising and enjoy all that they love about being on board with us, before we all begin to venture further afield again.
“This is an incredibly important milestone for our business, and we can’t wait to welcome our guests on board our new-look fleet this summer.”
