Fred. Olsen Adds Third Solar Eclipse Cruise

Following huge demand for its recently-launched Total Solar Eclipse cruises in 2015 - with both voyages on Boudicca and Black Watch already fully booked - Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has added a third opportunity to witness this rare solar phenomenon on board Braemar.

The new cruise (M1505) will depart from Dover on March 11 for 13 nights and will be positioned off the coast of the Faroe Islands on March 20, 2015, when the longest duration of ‘totality’ of 2 minutes 47 seconds – the best opportunity to view the full solar eclipse – occurs. During its voyage, the cruise will also visit Ã…lesund (Norway), Leknes (Lofoten Islands, Tromsø (Norway) and Runavik (Faroes), before returning to Dover. 

Prices for this ex-UK cruise start from £1,699 per person, based on two adults sharing an inside, twin cabin Grade ‘I’, and include accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, and port taxes. Guests can also upgrade to Fred. Olsen’s ‘all-inclusive’ drinks package for just £29 per person per night.
