APD causes Fred. Olsen to drop Caribbean fly-drive cruises

Fred. Olsen has announced that it will stop selling fly-cruises to the Caribbean next year following the rising costs of air travel and APD. The cruise line’s Braemar will sail its last programme this winter in the Caribbean and will then voyage from UK ports. “This was not an easy decision to make, as our Caribbean fly-cruises have always been popular,” said Lol Nichols, general sales manager at Fred. Olsen.  “We feel that the wide choice of ex-UK ports that we feature gives greater convenience to guests from all over the British Isles, and the addition of Braemar to the year-round ex-UK programme will allow for a greater variety of cruises, as well as allowing those loyal Braemar fans to cruise on the ship all-year-round from the UK.” The cruise line will continue to visit Caribbean ports.
