Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has the perfect holiday cruise for your client. Choose between two departures with calls at historic European ports that are glowing with candlelit cathedrals, holiday shopping markets, traditional food and drinks, special events and other seasonal enjoyments.

The 8-night Scandinavia & Germany Christmas Markets–the Balmoral itinerary departs on Nov. 30 Southampton and cruises to Gothenburg (Sweden), Copenhagen (Denmark), Hamburg (Germany), and Amsterdam (Netherlands). Prices start at $1,025 pp. The 7-night Scandinavia & Germany Christmas Markets–the Boudicca itinerary, meanwhile, departs Portsmouth on Dec. 10 and cruises to Gothenburg (Sweden), Copenhagen (Denmark), Bremerhaven (Germany) ,and Ostende (Belgium). Prices start at $886 pp.

The world-famous Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen is a featured port of call on both cruises. Every Christmas, the gardens are transformed into a spectacularly illuminated winter wonderland, full of colorful stalls with locally produced goods for sale, excellent restaurants, friendly bars and musicians performing throughout the park.

On board, guests will be served a traditional Christmas dinner with mulled wine, followed by an evening Christmas show and a carol concert for staff and passengers to take part in. There will also be a beautiful Christmas tree and maybe even a visit from Santa, himself.

Fred. Olsen’s smaller, more intimately sized ships help to create a warmer, friendlier atmosphere. Guests and crew quickly get to know each other, friendships are forged and soon everyone feels comfortable. Wherever your clients choose to travel, they will enjoy a level of service and warm camaraderie that’s unique to Fred. Olsen—and that is called the Fred. Olsen difference.
