Save an impressive £260 with this early May bank holiday deal from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. For £249 per person, you get a 3-night mini cruise to France and Guernsey on Black Watch, including all meals, snacks and taxes.

Black Watch sets sail from Southampton on 4 May -- the spring bank holiday weekend -- and visits Boulogne-sur-mer (France) and St Peter Port (Guernsey), before ending in Harwich. There will be a complimentary coach transfer between Southampton and Harwich available for all guests at the beginning or end of the cruise.

Boulogne-sur-mer is a fishing port in the north of France. Two of the city's top attractions are its 12-century bell tower and the Nausicaā Centre National de la Mer, one of the largest aquariums in Europe.

Guernsey, the second-largest of the Channel Islands, lies about 30 miles off the west coast of Normandy. Its capital, St Peter Port, is a pretty, bustling harbour with museums, including Les Misérables writer Victor Hugo's home-in-exile. Overlooking the port is the imposing 17th-century Castle Cornet.

The price is based on two sharing a Balcony Cabin. Upgrade to a Balcony Suite for £50 more per person and to a Superior Suite for £100 more.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Line's Black Watch has ample room on deck for strolling. Dining options include the spacious Glentanar Restaurant, the Orchid Room and the more casual Braemar Garden Café. Lounges include the nautically themed Lido Lounge and The Observatory. Other facilities include the Neptune Lounge, which hosts regular shows and cabaret acts, a small cinema, two swimming pools, a tennis court and a fitness centre.
