Fred. Olsen has reacted to recent events in the Black Sea region by cancelling cruises to the area next year
Amid tension in the region, Fred. Olsen has cancelled its cruises to the Black Sea in 2015.
A spokesperson from Fred. Olsen said: “Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines adheres to all Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice and we have, unfortunately, had to cancel our proposed 2015 ‘The Black Sea’ cruise, which was due to depart on 15 September 2015 from Avonmouth (Bristol) on board Black Watch.”
“Due to the current uncertainties within the Black Sea region, we will not be scheduling further cruise itineraries to this area at the present time. However, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and adhere to current Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice,” they added.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has advised against all travel to the Crimea, Donetsk oblast and Lugansk oblast regions.
The FCO office also states on its website: “Events in Ukraine are fast moving. You should monitor this travel advice regularly, subscribe to email alerts and read our advice on how to deal with a crisis overseas.”
Check the FCO website or speak to your travel agent for any concerns about your holiday.
