Fred. Olsen Cruise Traces has confirmed that it will be extending its pause in sailings further than May perhaps 23rd in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Peter Deer, controlling director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Traces, mentioned: “At this stage I am not ready to validate a day when we can count on to resume ordinary functions, as what I really do not want to do is set an expectation and not be ready to deliver what we assure.

“What I can say is that we are holding a very shut eye on the newest guidance from the related authorities, such as the United kingdom federal government and General public Wellbeing England, as very well as overseas procedures.”

He included: “We are very clear on our situation that we will not resume cruising until we know that it is risk-free for us to do so.

“The security of our friends and crew is often our utmost priority, and this is primarily correct now.

“All friends on afflicted cruises will be notified with at least thirty days’ notice in advance of their cruise was thanks to depart.”

On March thirteenth, Deer declared that all Fred. Olsen ocean sailings would be paused until late May perhaps.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Traces will be evaluating all future cruises from May perhaps in day order.

The initial 5 sailings aboard its European river cruise ship, Brabant, have also been cancelled.

“It is regrettable that we will not be welcoming friends back again on board at the close of May perhaps as we experienced initially hoped, but we cannot hold out to commence sailing yet again as shortly as the entire world is all set for us to do so,” included Deer.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ ocean fleet – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black View – will keep on being in Scotland’s Firth of Forth, just outside the house the Port of Rosyth, during the company’s pause in cruise functions.
