How long have you been working for Fred.\ River Cruises?
I recently transferred from the Fred.\ Holidays department to Fred.\ River Cruises. I have worked for Fred. Olsen Travel for a total of 10 years within various departments.
What, do you believe, makes river cruising unique?
The joy of arriving in a new city most days. The ships are able to dock very close to the city centres enabling you to explore on your own or to take an escorted tour.
Which river cruise lines have you cruised with?
I recently went on board Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, Brabant. This gave me a good insight in to river cruising and the benefits of it.
I also went to the River Cruise convention in Amsterdam and had the opportunity to see various cruise lines, this was extremely beneficial and allowed me to see the differences between the river cruise companies.
Are there any rivers or regions that you would particularly recommend?
I have experienced the Rhine and the Moselle, both are very popular with many cruise operators. I would recommend both of these for the wonderful cities they visit.
What is your most memorable river cruising experience?
Waking up in the early hours whilst docking in Cologne and seeing the Dom Cathedral all lit up.
What are the unique factors of booking with Fred.\ River Cruises?
The vast operators we work with and the flexibility to tailor make to your specific requirements.
