Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines to partner with Go Stargazing for 26 cruises in 2024
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has teamed up with astronomy organisation Go Stargazing for a series of cruises setting sail next year.
The new partnership will see astronomers join a selection of 26 cruises on board Bolette, Borealis and Balmoral to destinations including Norway, Iceland, the Azores and the Canary Islands throughout 2024, encouraging guests to look up at the night skies.
The stargazing experts will spend time on deck helping guests aboard navigate the dark skies with laser-guided tours of the constellations, observing fascinating celestial objects from the Moon’s craters to distant galaxies and experiencing phenomena including meteor showers and the Aurora Borealis.
James Moss, Journey Experience Coordinator at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“We know that our guests love sitting on the open deck, snuggled in a blanket with a hot chocolate or a toddy, looking up at the beauty of the night sky.
“Now, thanks to our partnership with Go Stargazing, we will be able to offer 26 incredible itineraries where an astronomer will join our guests on-board and bring the darkness to life.
“The itineraries include the likes of the Natural Wonders and Wildlife of the Azores and Madeira in April and In Search of the Northern Lights at Christmas in December.
“To have the Go Stargazing experts on-board, sharing their vast expertise and insight, is something that we know our guests will enjoy and enable them to get even more from cruising with Fred. Olsen.”
In addition, the Go Stargazing team will host various presentations and answer questions about all things astronomical.
The new partnership ties in with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Signature Experience, the Sky at Sea, which celebrates a sunrise at sea or the beauty of the night sky from the deck of the ship.
