Ramblers Cruise & Walk Holidays

We are delighted to announce that our wonderful partner Ramblers Walking Holidays have created an opportunity for Silver Travellers to apply to attend an exclusive ship visit, which they will host.

Ramblers Walking Holidays have an exciting arrangement with another of our partners, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines whereby a few of Fred. Olsen’s cruises are designated 'Ramblers Cruise & Walk Holidays'. Ramblers Cruise & Walk Holidays combine the flexibility of a traditional cruise with one of their expert small group, guided, walking holidays, allowing you to enjoy much more walking and sightseeing, all included in the price.

There are some very important differences to our usual ship visits, however:
By applying for this visit you are confirming that you have a genuine interest in rambling/walking and cruising, in combination.

GUESTS WITH A FUTURE BOOKING ON THE RELEVANT SHIP, OR THAT HAVE CRUISED ON OR VISITED THE SHIP PREVIOUSLY CANNOT ATTEND THE VISIT. The only exception to this will be where guests have cruised on the vessel prior to their recent refurbishments and do not have a future booking in place, but now wish to view the changes made.

The usual Silver Travel Advisor/Fred.Olsen affinity discount will not apply to any bookings for a Ramblers Cruise & Walk booking.

Your ship visit will include brief presentations by both Ramblers Walking Holidays and Fred. Olsen, whilst enjoying a welcome drink, followed by a tour of the ship’s public areas and viewing some of the various room grades. After the tour, visitors will enjoy an early buffet lunch with wine in the main restaurant.
