Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has launched a brand-new selection of fly-cruise sailings to offer guests a shorter, immersive cruise experience in 2025.

As part of the 2025/26 Worldwide programme, a selection of seven to 12-night cruises to the Mediterranean have been unveiled on board the smaller ship Balmoral.

Guests will be able to visit destinations such as the cliff-top towns of Cinque Terre and Amalfi, the Bay of Kotor and the Greek islands with activities such as Flamenco dancing, Greek dancing and Turkish baths.

On board, guests can also look forward to a host of specially curated activities, including sampling authentic flavours from the destinations they will visit such as Jerez sherry, limoncello and Turkish tea.

Those making a booking can also take advantage of dedicated launch offers, with up to £20 per person per night to spend on board selected five to 13-night cruises.

They can also opt for £20 credit per person per night or free door-to-door transfers within up to 200 mainland miles from the port on sailings of 14 to 28 nights.

There are also a series of dedicated offers for solo travellers.

Martin Lister, Head of Itinerary Planning and Destination Experiences at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Our expert Journey Planners have poured their passion into hand-crafting a programme that they are truly proud of.

“Our new range of shorter fly-cruise options to the Mediterranean offers a range of journeys to some of its most inspiring destinations, where guests can really maximise their time for exploring ashore and with the benefit of less sailing time than departing from the UK.

“Among the itineraries, guests will have chances to visit the captivating La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, cruise along the spectacular Makarska Riviera in Croatia, see the stunning Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul and witness the whitewashed dome houses in Santorini.”

Balmoral’s 10-night L2524 ‘Spanish Colours and Cultures’ cruise, departing from Southampton on 17th September 2025. Prices start from £1,599 per person.
