Fred Olsen Cruise Lines
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is a history-rich, family operated cruise line. It operates a fleet of four small- to medium-sized, old fashioned ships with comfortably attractive, though plain interior decor. These small sized ships are perfectly suited to small ports, and depart from many different ports throughout the United Kingdom to worldwide destinations. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is renowned for its friendly, "British country house" atmosphere and modest, though efficient service. Passengers are promised a truly traditional British cruising experience onboard each of the four ships, where emphasis is on cosy intimacy rather than on luxury. Activities and events onboard are lowkey and rather old fashioned, including traditional singing and dancing.
Cuisine onboard is classified as being rather affordable and of decent quality. Dinner consists of a five-course meal and requires a formal dress-code. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines are preferred by those who relish peace and quiet, the gentle art of conversation and essentially by lovers of old-style cruising.
