Fred Olsen unveils 'The Bookmark Cafe' across its fleet

Fred Olsen unveils 'The Bookmark Cafe' across its fleet
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched its onboard coffee and luxury chocolate shops as the ‘The Bookmark Café’.

The line first introduced this relaxing, sociable area across its fleet of four smaller ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – during drydocks in 2013 and 2014.

The onboard facilities – which adjoin the ships’ Libraries – serves specialty coffees and teas from world-renowned Taylors of Harrogate, as well as high-quality Pralines, Champagne Truffles and other hand-made chocolates.
Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: 'They have quickly become firm favourites with our guests. Each one is located right at the heart of the ship, and retains a sociable and relaxing atmosphere for guests to pass the time with a luxurious latte or Taylors’ loose leaf tea, and delicious, hand-made chocolates as an extra treat.'
The Bookmark Cafés are located on Lounge Deck 7 on board Balmoral – Fred. Olsen’s flagship – on Lounge Deck 5 on Braemar, on Lido Deck 7 on Boudicca, and on Lido Deck 7 on Black Watch.
