Fred. Olsen Cruises

Fred. Olsen offers traditional cruises on-board small and welcoming cruise ships. You will enjoy fabulous food and excellent service as you relax in comfort with like-minded British travellers. Fred. Olsen cruise ships sail from five different regional ports across the UK, with fly-cruises also available.

The Fred. Olsen fleet is designed to offer a more intimate and personal cruise experience. Each of the line’s vessels ensure you receive a warm and friendly welcome as well as great value cruises from the UK to a wide range of destinations worldwide. You can enjoy a quintessentially British ambience on-board, where the currency is in pounds.

The ships are smaller than many other cruise ships, meaning that you’ll feel more at home and will soon get to know your fellow passengers, as well as members of the crew. Whether you want to relax in the Atlantic Spa, indulge in a range of exquisite cuisine, keep active in the fitness lounge or enjoy a line-up of world-class entertainment each evening, you are sure to savour your time aboard a Fred. Olsen ship.

What to Expect

When you´re not exploring exciting destinations and experiencing new cultures ashore, you will have plenty of time to enjoy life aboard your fabulous Fred. Olsen cruise ship. No matter which of the ships you set sail on, you will enjoy a wealth of amazing entertainment, wonderful activities and marvellous dining experiences as you cruise from port to port.


Whichever vessel you choose, there are plenty of cabins and suites aboard to suit every party size, and each one comes with every amenity that you could possibly need during your time at sea.

Accommodation aboard Fred. Olsen ranges from Interior, Porthole, Picture Window, Balcony and Suite. Each cabin is equipped with climate control, smart TV, hairdryer, fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities. Your cabin stewardess will also turn down your room daily too.

Porthole or Picture Window cabins offer a view of the ocean, while a Balcony also offers a private place for you to enjoy the sea breezes as well. For the Suites, guests can indulge in the ultimate Fred. Olsen experience with little luxuries and extra special touches including a welcome bottle of sparkling wine, a fruit basket, flowers in your cabin and even afternoon canapés.


There is a wide assortment of daytime activities to enjoy for all guests on-board their Fred. Olsen cruise. Enjoy fun quizzes, yoga, arts and craft lessons, as well as the chance to see guest speakers and performers. There are also fitness activities to suit your needs and interests.

Indulge in a new hobby or skill from photography and ballroom dancing to singing and language. You could even join the Book Club! Guest speakers vary by sailing, though these are always leading experts from their field, with topics including wine tasting or aviation.


Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included in your cruise fare with Fred. Olsen, as well as afternoon tea and supper club. Start the day with a hearty breakfast, before enjoying a varied lunch menu or buffet; savouring scrumptious scones, cakes, and sandwiches for afternoon tea; before a five course a la carte feast for dinner. Delicious!

Each of Fred. Olsen’s dining venues offer tempting dishes, which are expertly crafted by chefs and presented with the personal touch of Fred. Olsen’s famous on-board service.

Speciality restaurants are another place to dine, whether you’re in the mood for something special or just a little treat. These vary by ship from the Grill, with finest cooked-to-order steaks and Poolside for a more relaxed venue taking inspiration from destinations.


Evening entertainment is not to be missed aboard Fred. Olsen, with live comedy, stage shows, music and cabaret just waiting to be enjoyed. Enjoy a range of live performances on-board your ship, as well as quick-fire comedy to tickle your funny bone.

You can also just sit back and relax with a cocktail or dance the night away to tunes from the ship’s very own resident band.


Children of six months and over can cruise with Fred. Olsen and, during peak times, the line’s Little Skippers Club offers a variety of fun activities for those aged between five and 11 years old. Here, your little ones can enjoy arts and crafts, discos, treasure hunts and more all supervised by the cruise line’s friendly team of hosts.


Fred. Olsen offers a welcoming home-from-home atmosphere, to enjoy with like-minded guests and friendly staff. The cruise line is so confident that you will enjoy your cruise with Fred. Olsen, that they offer an Enjoyment Promise as standard.

The cruise line has also been recognised by several awards in the industry, such as ‘Best for Itineraries’, ‘Best for Shore Excursions’ and ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ – all of which encompass the levels of standard you will receive with your Fred. Olsen cruise.

The cruise line also offers a Brexit Promise, meaning if your Fred. Olsen cruise is cancelled due to the UK leaving the EU, you will receive a full refund and a free cruise. What’s more, once your cruise is booked and deposit paid, Fred. Olsen promise that there will be no additional supplements or surcharges directly related to Brexit, on the confirmed price. Plus, Shore Tours and purchases made on-board your ship are priced in £ (GBP) – so you can enjoy your cruise without worrying about exchange rates.
