A Fred Olsen cruise offers a traditional cruising experience. On board their small ships you will enjoy a personal and intimate ambience as well as exceptional friendly service.

Life on Board

You’ll never be short of things to do on a Fred Olsen cruise, with a wide range of activities and entertainment on offer. You'll have the opportunity to learn a new hobby or skill such as ballroom dancing and language classes, or you can keep fit with yoga, pilates and fitness activities. In the evening, sit back with your favourite tipple and be entertained by brilliant cabaret shows, comedy acts and live music. 

Food & Drink

Food is such an important part of a Fred Olsen cruise and you will discover that dining at sea is a special occasion every day. You will be treated to award-winning food created daily by expert chefs whenever and wherever you like. Whether you want to indulge in an elegant 5-course a la carte dinner or opt for something more relaxed, there’s something to suit your every taste and mood. And if you're still feeling peckish, there’s also a late night buffet available. 


There are room types to suit every need and budget on a Fred Olsen cruise, from cosy interiors to large suites as well as single rooms. Fred Olsen cruises are a popular choice for single cruisers as you can stay in a single room without paying a supplement for a twin room. Treat yourself to the added luxury of a suite if you’re looking to make your cruise extra special. And, when you book selected suites you can enjoy a complimentary Suite Dreams benefits package.

            Further Afield 

            Fred. Olsen's itineraries really come into their own when sailing further afield. Our journeys are carefully planned to ensure that you’ll visit your destination at the best time to go, such as America’s famous fall, or crossing the Arctic Circle at the perfect time to witness the Midnight Sun. They also sail where larger ships simply cannot, so you can experience unique scenic cruising through rivers, fjords and canals, only made possible because of their smaller size.

                Our first holiday in 2 and a half years

                Initially spoke with Naomi, was given a pricing, didn’t feel that I wanted to book there and then, wanted some time to think it over. Had a few queries rang her back, all questions answered, still felt I needed some time, when I was ready rung her back and sainted to speak to her and booked without any issues. Naomi was clear in her explanations at every stage of our conversations.
