The guests have spoken… Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ next fleet get-together is named ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’ in social media poll

Guests have named Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ third fleet get-together ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’ in a social media poll, ahead of the event in October 2021.

Last week, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines gave guests the chance to vote for their favourite name for the upcoming event. There were three names to choose from – ‘Four Fred.s in Lisbon’, ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’, and ‘Four B’s in Lisbon’ – as well as the opportunity for voters to suggest their own. Other options that were put forward included ‘Fred.s Portuguese Parade’, ‘Fred.s Lisbon Liaison’ and ‘Liners in Lisbon’.

The vote closed on Sunday evening with ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’ the resounding winner, attracting a total of 63% of all votes.

Ben Williams, Head of Digital at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“It was great to get our guests involved in the naming of this event. So many have been enjoying our virtual cruising programme online, and this was the perfect way to say thank you for all their support.

“We had some fun looking over the entries as they came in, with some of the more entertaining options including ‘Four Lucky Ladies in Lisbon’, ‘Four Legends in Lisbon’ and ‘Four Portuguese Tarts’, but we had a clear winner.

“We look forward to seeing many of you at ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’ next October!”

Fred. Olsen’s four ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – will come together in Lisbon on 22nd October 2021. The new fleet get-together was launched in April, following the cancellation of the planned ‘Four Fred.s in Funchal’ event, which was due to take place on 4th April this year.

All guests who book to join one of the ‘Four Ladies in Lisbon’ sailings before 30th June 2020 can enjoy up to £200 per person to spend on board and the cost of tips covered, as well as a choice of cabin, restaurant and dining time, plus a number of other benefits.
