The 170th anniversary of Fred Olsen’s beginnings in the shipping industry is to be marked in 2018 with a special event in Spain.
The Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ fleet of four ships - Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch - will dock together in Cadiz on September 10, 2018.
The ‘Captains in Cádiz’ get-together will feature celebrations and festivities on four themed cruise itineraries which go on sale from September 28.
The announcement comes ahead of the full details of the line’s 2018/19 cruise programme being released in its main Worldwide Cruises brochure next spring.
Managing director Mike Rodwell said: “In July last year, we brought our four ships together for the very first time in Bergen and it was one of the most celebrated events that we have held since the shipping line’s inception in 1848.
“To mark our milestone 170th anniversary in 2018, we will be looking to build upon the tremendous success of our ‘Four Ships in Bergen’ event with ‘Captains in Cádiz’ – so-called because the ships’ captains will be leading on many of the day’s activities.
“We know that for many of our guests, Cádiz is a highlight of their cruise with us, and the city is renowned for its historical architecture, warm welcome and generous hospitality.
“This port’s excellent facilities within the city will allow all four Fred Olsen ships to berth alongside each other, meaning that Cádiz is the ideal location for this important moment in Fred Olsen’s history.”
