BMB Bridge Cruises

  • Daily Bridge on board (evening duplicate).
  • Team leader and hosts to co-ordinate the group.
  • Drinks parties.
  • On days at sea there are also open seminars and afternoon bridge.
  • Beginners lessons on board.
  • Special solo's fares - bridge partners are always found.

On a BMB bridge cruise you can choose how much bridge you want to play. Some play a little and some play a lot! You will be in a party of like-minded travellers and with a bridge leader and team you will find that a pleasant atmosphere develops. We always have a variety of single players and find partners for everybody who needs one. Non-players are welcome - there is plenty to do on board other than bridge and as you will notice above, there are even beginners lessons.

Sharing a Cabin

Like all cruise lines, Fred. Olsen charge a supplement for single occupancy cabins. If you wish to explore sharing a cabin with a fellow BMB member in order to avoid the singles supplement, you can post on our Cruises- Willing to Share a Cabin Forum, or join our Willing to Share Private Members List. This is a service from BMB to help like-minded members connect. BMB's involvement is to simply make the introduction.
