Festive Fred. Olsen Mini-Taster Irish Cruise Underway

#FestiveMiniCruises – Boudicca (1973/28,551grt) of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has this evening departed Dublin Port on a 2 night mini-cruise for Irish passengers bound for Liverpool, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The cruise which departed Ocean Pier is one of several festive 'taster' Irish Sea cruises before Christmas.

Fred Olsen, the four-star operator is offering a choice of 1, 2 and 3 night cruises to attract the Irish market as well as the UK.

Last night, Boudicca departed Liverpool's Cruise Terminal to Dublin to where passengers experienced the Irish capital before embarking this evening with Irish passengers to Merseyside.

The other cruises will have an intinerary to include Belfast, Cork (Cobh) and Liverpool plus en route calls to Dublin to collect Irish guests.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
