Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines
Fred. Olsen are proud of their tradition of smaller ships. Each one in the fleet has its own unique personality, but never loses that friendly, home-from-home atmosphere, where friendships are forged with fellow-passengers and crew alike. The ships are comfortable, well equipped and stylish, but they are not vast and impersonal. Instead, they are big enough to provide everything you need, but small enough so that you can feel at home from the moment you step on board.
When you cruise with Fred Olsen you will soon recognize the feeling of being completely at ease. The crew are carefully selected for their warmth and charm and will look after you with a unique combination of efficiency and friendliness. It’s therefore no surprise that so many people come back year after year, often with friends made on previous voyages.
Your cabin on board a Fred. Olsen cruise ship is your home from home. They have a wide variety of comfortable en suite cabins to suit your needs which include TV, hairdryer, air conditioning and in cabin safe. They also have a substantial number of single cabins on all their ships, so if you’re a solo traveller you can avoid the expense of paying a supplement for a twin cabin.
When dinning on board a Fred. Olsen ship you will find a choice of restaurants, bars and Cafes, so whatever your taste there’ll be something for you. Choose a full English breakfast in one of the restaurants or continental-style in your own cabin. Lunch might be alfresco by the pool or in the cafe, then for the evening you might like to enjoy cocktails followed by a formal dinner.
All of the ships in the Fred. Olsen fleet have a wide range of on-board activities and pastimes, including swimming pools, Jacuzzis, gyms and deck sports. On Boudicca and Black Watch you can play the traditional cruise-ship game of quoits. When you just want to chill out, you can relax on deck or in one of the comfortable lounges, maybe with a good book selected from the ships library.
Fred. Olsen’s 2012/13 programme includes an enormous choice of destinations, varying in duration from a mini-cruise of just two nights, to an epic world voyage, lasting 112 nights. The itineraries feature a number of new and exciting destinations, along with many old favourites. Departures are from convenient regional British ports – Dover, Southampton, Portsmouth, Newcastle, Greenock (Glasgow) and Rosyth (Edinburgh.)
