Fred. Olsen lets guests choose the destinations

Boudicca

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines are putting faith in their guests by letting them choose the itinerary for Braemar over a 15-night course sailing round-trip from Southampton.

Guests will vote for one of two choices every 48 hours resulting in a unique cruise voyage planned through consensus. The first decision will be between Vigo (Spain) or Leixoes (Portugal). The second will be between Malaga (Spain) or Gibraltar. Next it will be between Barcelona or Palamós (both in Spain). The decisions will continue with a choice between Valencia (Spain) or Palma (Mallorca, Balearic Islands) and then Cartagena or Alicante (both in Spain). Guests will then choose between Cadiz (Spain) or Portimão (Portugal) before making the final choice between Ferrol or La Coruna (both in Spain).

This mystery cruise  departs on 10 October 2015 and prices start from £1,079 per person based on two adults sharing an inside cabin.
