10 Night Fred Olsen Cruise Oslo, Antwerp and Amsterdam £379 Travelzoo

Found 23rd Jul 2014
Ypu meed to book by phone with Fres Olsen direct but it was advertised with Travelzoo, not for me but may help anyone. Not sure if it is school half term too?

With overnight stops in three European cities, this £379 sailing is more like three mini breaks rolled into one. And at less than £38 a night, it's the cheapest 10-night cruise we've run in 2014. You'll have to be quick though, as the 50% saving is only available until midnight on Friday.

What's included
A 10-night full-board cruise aboard Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' Balmoral in an Inside Cabin.

When
Depart on 24 October.

Itinerary
After leaving Southampton, Balmoral will sail to Oslo for an overnight stay. While in the Norwegian capital, you can visit The Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park, or the Viking Ship Museum, where you'll find Oseberg and Gokstad, two of the world's best-preserved Viking ships.

Next is Amsterdam, where you can check out the Rijksmuseum, "home to thousands of masterpieces" (The Guardian), or take a wander behind the Royal Palace until you hit one of the four main canals that loop the city. This area, known as the Nine Streets, is home to trendy shops, cafes, boutiques and bars.

The last stop is Antwerp, Belgium's second city and the country's "capital of cool", according to Lonely Planet. Must-sees include the Cathedral of Our Lady, a Gothic structure that took 169 years to build, and the medieval fortress Het Steen. Balmoral then sails back to Southampton.

Ship details
Balmoral is described by the Berlitz Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships 2014 as a "well-designed ship with a homely British ambience". Key features include the Neptune Lounge, home to all of the onboard entertainment shows, and the main dining room, the Ballindalloch Restaurant, with ocean views. There are two swimming pools, gaming tables and both a spa and gym.

Other options

Upgrade to all-inclusive for £100 per person
Outside Cabins are £479 per person; Superior Outside Cabins are £549 per person
Single Inside Cabins are £649 per person
Book by midnight on 25 July.

Why we love it

A teacher friend has said in her area the last day is 24th October then the kids break up for half term, although this may differ area to area.

£375 on Iglu

May be worth using that to negotiate with Fred Olsen direct or get a better cabin, that said I have uswd Iglu before with no problems.

Forgot to mention if you book using a credit card Fred Olsen charge 2% extra Iglu are 2.5% but 4% for American Express. Debit cards are free for both.

Tipping is £2 per adult per day extra but it does say you can speak to Reception on board to vary this.

Agree SS the AI option is great for £10 extra p.p a day. A couple of cocktails and it would pay for itself.
