FPS partner Fred. Olsen crowned ‘Best Cruise Line’ for Groups, for the ninth year running

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has today been named the ‘Best Cruise Line’ at the Group Leisure and Travel Awards 2020 – for the ninth year in a row!

The ceremony for the awards, now in their 24th year, was held virtually for the first time this afternoon, presented by TV personality and magician Ben Hanlin.

On receiving the award, Ellie Fulcher, Sales Manager for Groups and Affinity at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Winning any award is always incredible, but when they are voted for by our guests and group travel organisers like this it really does mean the world, especially during such a challenging year for our industry. “From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone who voted for us. We can’t wait to welcome you all back on board when we resume sailing next year – and of course, to show you our two exciting new ships, too!”

Fred. Olsen was one of six cruise lines shortlisted for the award, alongside AMA Waterways, Arena River Cruises, Croisi Europe, Emerald Waterways and SAGA.

This latest accolade follows on from Fred. Olsen also being named the ‘Best Cruise Line Operator for Groups’ at the Group Travel Awards 2020 last month.

Last year, in addition to the ‘Best Cruise Line’ title, Ellie also received the Excellence Award for the enthusiasm, dedication and commitment she shows for creating exceptional group travel experiences aboard the Fred. Olsen fleet.

From groups of friends and families, club and society holidays to full ship charters, Fred. Olsen offers tailor-made experiences to suit any group.

We are delighted for Ellie and Jamie and the team at Fred.Olsen - a well deserved award. And, if you have not seen it already, we recently announced our next FPS Group Cruise with Fred.Olsen.

This cruise "Swedish Waterways with a taste of Denmark" departs on the 11 September 2021 fro 10 nights. You will sail from Dover on board the flagship Bolette - Cruise code T2122.
