Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has appointed GAC UK as its agent in Newcastle and Liverpool.
Under the deal, GAC will manage 18 calls during 2018 for the 804-pax cruise ship ‘Black Watch’ at Liverpool and a further 16 for the 1,350 pax ‘Balmoral’, at Newcastle.
Clare Ward, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’Director of Product and Customer Service, said:
“Turnaround calls are always busy days for everybody involved in the operation, with crew changes, immigration and customs formalities, stevedoring activity, receipt of supplies and much more all going on at once.
“Having the support from our port agent and knowing they have local contacts in the area to assist when needed gives us great confidence. Knowing that the day will run as smoothly as possible from start to finish.That’s why Fred Olsen has chosen to partner with GAC,”she said.
