Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Cruises with service and value, taking you all over the world.
Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Fred Olsen 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 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 low-key and rather old fashioned, including traditional singing and dancing.

Dining onboard a Fred Olsen cruise ship is a high point of every day. Light and healthy or hearty full-English breakfasts, lunches of salads and seafood or British favourites and fabulous, five-course á la carte dinners: you'll find deliciously-tempting dishes every time. Fred Olsen is preferred by those who relish peace and quiet, the gentle art of conversation and essentially by lovers of old-style cruising.
