Sail from the uk

As a British-led company, it comes as no surprise that Fred. Olsen offers plenty of cruises from UK departure ports. Indeed, it is a firm philosophy of the line that your holiday begins the moment you step on-board, so if you are heading straight to your ship, your holiday can start a whole lot quicker than when you have to fly to a departure port overseas. In keeping with the line´s British heritage, all on-board costs are in pounds, maintaining a home from home environment for UK cruisers. Fred. Olsen offers sailings from Southampton, Portsmouth, Dover, Bristol, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh, and even offers options for fast check-in as well, so you can truly experience a hassle-free journey from start to finish.

Olsen Cruise Lines, you will find that plenty of marvellous extras and special services are included within your original great value cruise fare, from fine dining and room service options, to leisure activities, entertainment, cocktail parties, enrichment programmes and more. Everyone who cruises with Fred. Olsen will also automatically become a member of the Oceans loyalty scheme, a programme designed to reward loyal guests with added incentives and special discounts. The more you cruise with Fred. Olsen, the more Cruise Points you will acquire, moving you up through the various membership levels and opening up new perks both on-board and ashore.


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.

Special occasions

Planning to celebrate a special occasion on-board? Fred. Olsen always works hard to make your cruise as special as can be, no matter what the event. Whether it´s a birthday celebration, wedding anniversary or you are cruising to celebrate your retirement, the line offers packages to suit. With the help of Fred. Olsen, you can treat someone special to a celebration that they truly deserve.

Worldwide destinations

Fred. Olsen sails to just about anywhere on the planet. Due to the smaller size of its fleet, this line can easily slip into more remote, intimate and secluded ports that the larger cruise ships cannot reach, enabling you to explore a world that is untouched by most. Just some of the destinations you can discover include the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Arctic and Greenland, or even the mighty Amazon River, and when you book with Fred. Olsen, you are also sure of great value for money.

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines Ships

Fred. Olsen ships are designed to offer a more intimate, personal cruise experience. Each of the line’s vessels ensure you receive a warm and friendly welcome and offers great value cruises from the UK to a wide range of destinations worldwide. Fred. Olsen 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. Each vessel in the Fred. Olsen fleets boasts a quintessentially British ambience on-board, where the currency is in pounds and UK cruisers of all ages will discover a truly home from home atmosphere. 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.
