    Fred's advertisements

    Any Fred Olsen fans out there who could possibly answer, or shed a light on, this question.

    Why does national press Fred Olsen cruise advertisements feel the need to include
    'Baggage porterage to and from your cabin' is included in your Exclusive Package.

    No worse than other lines who use descreptive pictures which were taken when the Ship was new or even computer generated images.But your example is a true fact by Fred Olsen and would help first time cruiseres.

    Wouldn't by any chance have been being run at the side of an ad for a short cruise? Many cruise lines make you porter your own bags on cruises of 3nts or less so maybe they were highlighting the difference of their short cruises?

    Just a thought....

    We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.

    I didn't think you were allowed glasses by the pool

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
