Fred Olsen Cruise Lines unveils 2023 Grand Voyage

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has released a Grand Voyage departing from Southampton next year.

Prices for the 93-night Intrepid Beauty of Africa and Indian Ocean Grand Voyage on Bolette (pictured), departing on November 19, 2023, start from £9,999.

Ports of call include Tangier, Morocco; Valletta, Malta; Zanzibar, Tanzania; and Praslin Island, Seychelles.

There are overnight stays in Victoria, Seychelles, Mombasa, Kenya, a two-night stay in Port Louis, Mauritius; and a three-night extended stay in Cape Town, South Africa.

Passengers will receive up to £500 per person to spend on board and those booking by June 30, 2022, will also receive free door-to-door transfers up to 200 miles to the port.

The sailing is included in the line’s 2023-24 programme, which is set to launch later this month.

Martin Lister, head of itinerary planning and destination experience at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “This sailing is a real adventure, and working closely with [chairman] Mr Olsen Jr himself, we have curated this itinerary to allow guests to have real, immersive experiences ashore.

“There will also be so many opportunities to encounter wildlife in its natural habitat, from seeking out the ‘Big Five’ in Kenya and South Africa or spotting endemic species such as the giant tortoise in Seychelles and lemurs and chameleons in Madagascar.

“It is a cruise that offers countless highlights, and we can’t wait to share these experiences with our guests.”
