This has been a day for receiving interesting emails from cruise lines. In addition to the incorrect credit card pre-authorisation email from P&O I also received this email from Fred. Olsen:
We just wanted to share with you the exciting news that Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is making a significant investment across its fleet and moving in a different direction…
More details to follow on Monday 13th June 2016, so save a space!
I’m quite intrigued by this. Obviously Fred. Olsen are faced with the fact that two of their ships, Black Watch and Boudicca, are now very old – 40 years+ in each case. I know they’re very well maintained, but they are old and show it in their on-board arrangements. Perhaps Fred Olsen are going to announce a new build? – although the comment “… making a significant investment across its fleet” does seem to the talking about the current fleet. Then there’s the comment “… and moving in a different direction…” at the end; the possibilities for that are endless.
We must wait until Monday to learn more.
