Fred Olsen to connect the Canary Islands with route to the Peninsula
Passenger ship operator Fred Olsen Express has launched a new triangular route to mainland Spain, with the collaboration of the Baleària shipping company, through their alliance project announced last September “Canary Bridge Seaways” (CBS), which now links the port of Huelva with the two main ports of the Canary Islands, la Luz on Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
This new route will be operated aboard the ship Martín i Soler, owned by Baleària. The ship is to depart the Puerto de la Luz, in Las Palmas, every Tuesday and Sunday, at 12 noon and will take 44 hours to reach its final destination, the Andalusian port of Huelva, after a 4 hour stopover in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The ship will set sail from the Peninsular on Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and head to Gran Canaria where it will have a four-hour stopover and return to mooring in Tenerife.
The route will offer various services including a restaurant, bar, shop, Internet connection, outdoor areas, a children’s area and a pool as well as cabins and various seating rooms (tourist or superior).
