Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines launches inaugural ‘Authentic Japan’ cruise in early 2021

One of the highlights of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ new 2020/21 ocean programme is its inaugural 14-night D2101 ‘Authentic Japan’ fly-cruise, from Tokyo in January 2021, aboard Boudicca

This sumptuous itinerary features three maiden calls in Japan – Beppu, Hiroshima and Nagoya – and focusses upon the themes of ‘authenticity’ and taking guests ‘closer’, as part of Fred. Olsen’s range of new ‘Community & Way of Life’ cruise experiences.

This enlightening and enriching adventure around the islands of Japan is full of immersive experiences, which will allow guests to unearth the country’s fascinating way of life.

Embark on an unforgettable tour to Kamakura, the place where the Samurai originated; don a traditional Kimono, as part of a traditional tea ceremony in Kobe; be captivated by Geishas, as they perform dances to Japanese music in Tokyo; sample classic cuisine, such as Sake rice wine and sushi; and relax in the thermal hot springs at Beppu. This exotic fly-cruise finishes off in style with a visit to the capital of Taiwan, Taipei (via Keelung), and takes in the iconic skyline of Hong Kong.
