Cruise awards a festive hit


With Rachael Jackson, Public Relations Manager at Fred. Olsen, at the CLIA dinner.

Abbe Bates was very pleased to be invited by the team at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines to the CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) Annual Dinner before Christmas.

Onboard Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ Magellan, a cocktail reception in the Captain’s Club preceeded the presentation of the Cruise Excellence Awards for cruise agents, held in the Magellan Main Show Lounge.

The wonderful six-course Gala Dinner followed in the Waldorf Restaurant, where I had the chance to catch up with the Fred.Olsen team and meet fellow journalists amongst the almost 500 guests.
