Spotted: 4Bs in Bergen

fred olsen

Norwegian cruise line Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines brought together its fleet of four ships –Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – in Bergen, Norway on July 28, 2015.

This ‘4 Bs in Bergen’ event – named after the initial letter of each of the four Fred. Olsen ships – was the first time ever that the fleet has converged in one place, anywhere in the world.

Fred. Olsen’s four ships sailed into the Bergen harbour at just before 8 am local time yesterday, entering in formation and taking up their positions in the Port.

Flagship Balmoral was berthed at Bontelabo Pier, sister ships Boudicca and Black Watch at Skolten Pier and Braemar at Festningskaien Pier, nearest to the city centre.

‎Fred. Olsen’s four ships departed from Bergen in convoy at 6pm, and made an exit from the harbour in a ‘diamond’ formation, led by a fire tug boat ceremoniously spraying its water cannons.
