Ipswich-based Fred Olsen Cruises created a first for the company when all four of its liners came together for a stop at the Norwegian port of Bergen.

The Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch came together for “4 Bs in Bergen” event – the first time ever that the fleet has converged in one place, anywhere in the world.

Company chairman Fred Olsen Jnr was among the guests who watched the ships sail together for the first time.

‎Fred. Olsen’s four ships departed from Bergen in convoy and made an exit from the harbour in a diamond formation, led by a fire tug boat ceremoniously spraying its water cannons.
