Fred Olsen’s ‘Film Stars & Fast Cars’ take two
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ is repeating its ‘Film Stars & Fast Cars’ cruise in 2015, after its debut this year proved to be one of the company's quickest selling itineraries in 2014.

Next year’s 15-night cruise on Boudicca departs from Dover on May 16 and features the south of France and Spain. Once again it  coincides with the Monaco F1 Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival.

During a Nice stopover, guests can go to Monaco and purchase a choice of two special tours packages, each offering a grandstand view of the F1 race.

The first stop is Cádiz, used for backdrops to film sets, including James Bond’s, ‘Die Another Day’. Next up is Almeria where The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was filmed and opportunity to visit the film set where many famous westerns were shot on location, including A Fistful of Dollars, as well as sci-fi series, Doctor Who.

The call in Cannes coincides with the Cannes Film Festival.
