Fred’s with Benefits

Having recentely returned from a Fred Olsen cruise to the Canary Islands I thought it may be interesting for you to get a feel as to the extras which can be added on for you onto your cruise, me and my hubby had both the drinks package added and the Wi Fi package too.

On some of the sailings the drinks or Wi Fi may be added on complimentary – but not all of them so what is on offer?

All Inclusive Package…….

Whats included a wide variety of soft drinks by the glass, also Draught Pepsi, Lemonade, diet Lemonade, Low Calorie tonic water, tonic water, ginger ale, juices and mineral/spring water.

At The Bars..

House wines by the glass- White, Red & Rose and a choice of which you prefer

Beers – Big selection such as Stella, Carlsberg, Heinekin Ciders etc

Spirits – White Rum, Gin, Vodka, Whiskey, Brandy, Irish Cream

At the Restaurants & Buffet areas

Selection of soft drinks served by the glass, along with Beers and Wine

Regular Tea & Coffee

At Room Service

Orange Juice/Grapefruit Juice or Milk

Tea’s – traditional English or Darjeeling, Assam, Earl Grey, Cammomile.

Items Not Included – Cocktails, Branded & Premium drinks, Wines Champagnes and sparkling wines not on the list, Mini Bar.

Discounted drinks – Guests on the All Inclusive package are also entitled to 50% discount off of premium and branded drinks, this proved popular especially with the Presecco drinkers and the Sangria Cocktail Drinkers – like me..

Speaking to some of the guests the Fred Olsen drinks package was not the best they had experienced, but you have to take into account the cost of the package with Fred Olsen is a lot cheaper than the likes of  – Royal Caribbean or Celebrity Cruise, who’s prices are a lot more than Fred Olsen’s, so I guess it is you get what you pay for scenario…

Wi Fi

We purchased the 7 day package with unlimited use, easy enough to log on and you can switch it over to other devices if you wish, you can also view your on board account, Daily Times and Daily Mail whilst  on board. Guest services  were very helpful and they also have a supply of iPads to loan out

So why not give it a bash?
