Cruising allows you to explore a different destination every day in comfort and safety, which is why it’s one of the fastest growing sectors within travel.

Potters Abroad have been helping guests, particularly groups, to cruise the world since 2012. Renowned for our Bowls Cruises, which are hosted by Former World Number 1 Greg Harlow and a Potters Abroad Representative, we have taken guests around the UK and to many destinations in the Mediterranean over the last 7 years.

Every year we have returning guests and new faces joining us on our great cruise adventures with Fred Olsen, enjoying fantastic accommodation, facilities, food and entertainment.

With full and fun-packed daily itineraries you will never be short of something to do. Or simply choose to do nothing but relax and enjoy the lull of the ocean as you take in the sights at any of the wonderful destinations you will experience.

All Potters Abroad cruises will depart from, and return to a UK port. Although the ports will depend on the cruise, you can be safe in the knowledge that your ship will be waiting for you locally, taking away the stress of travel and making your journey as easy as possible.

Potters Abroad will take care of everything for you in terms of the organisation, so all that’s left for you to do is relax and let your cares float away.

Potters Abroad Bowls Cruises T&C's

All prices are based on full board accommodation. The 'prices from' price, is for a twin inside cabin. Higher grades and single cabins are available.

The free drinks package is Fred. Olsen’s standard inclusive drinks package. Some exclusions apply. Ship organised excursions are not included in your Potters Bowls Cruise price and can be purchased on board or prior to your cruise.

A 15% deposit, plus your full bowls supplement (if applicable) is required at time of booking, with the full balance due 15 weeks prior to departure.

It is a requirement that travel insurance is taken out before travelling on FOCL cruise holidays. This should cover all appropriate travel, cancellation, medical and repatriation liabilities for the holiday. Final cruise documents cannot be released until FOCL have received notification of your insurance.

he Bowls Supplement of £200 is not included in the advertised price. This supplement includes games at the destinations identified in the itinerary, free return coach transportation from the ship to the club, rink fees and the services of your Bowls Captain, Greg Harlow.

Please note that although our Bowls Cruises are scheduled on dates that give the best opportunity for optimum weather conditions, there may, in exceptional circumstances, be rough seas that will not allow the ship to enter a particular harbour, or for the tender boats to be in operation.

In addition, the ports and days shown on the itinerary may be altered by Fred. Olsen for operational reasons. In these circumstances, Potters Abroad will endeavour to re-schedule bowls matches on different days and/or ports, but cannot be held responsible for the cancellation of one or more of the Bowls excursions as detailed in the itinerary but will, at its discretion, refund part or all of the bowls excursion supplement (up to a maximum of £200 per person), dependent on the circumstances.
