Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has been voted winner of the Best Value for Money category of the Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Pick Awards for 2014.

It is the third year runing that the Ipswich-based company, a member of the EADT/EDP Top 100 listing of the 100 largest companies in Suffolk and Norfolk, has received the accolade which, together with 17 other awards, is based of the views of the international team of editors from the consumer website Cruise Critic,

The Cruise Critic editors said of Fred. Olsen: “Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offers a more traditional cruise experience at a great value – from two-for-one offers and drinks cheaper than UK pub prices, to tips that are lower than most in the industry. It also has great offers for solo passengers, with double cabins available at solo prices.”

Nathan Philpot, sales and marketing director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We are pleased that, for the third year running, our great-value cruises have been recognised by the expert editors at Cruise Critic.

“We know that value for money is an important motivator to booking a cruise, along with the destination, and we are committed to providing a consistently high-quality cruise experience to our guests, which doesn’t cost the earth.”
