Thanks to the adventurous spirit of three brothers on the shores of Oslofjord in Norway, Fred. Olsen have been sailing the world for 175 years. And every little thing they've learned informs the way they cruise today.
There are many reasons why cruising with Fred. Olsen is so special.
It's their award-winning, hand-crafted itineraries designed to take you to the most amazing places on earth, at the very best possible times. The Azores when the Perseid meteor shower streaks the night sky, Canada, to witness the famous 'Fall' leaves, and to seek out the mesmerising Northern Lights, when they are at their strongest.
It's their smaller ships, where the atmosphere on board is always warm and friendly, as well as being able to get to the more interesting places - like the furthest reaches of Norway's lesser-known fjords, and through Europe's narrow waterways and canals, to the very heart of some of the world's most fascinating cities.
And it's their unrivalled on board experience, where a great amount of care and consideration goes into ensuring that every single day is as enjoyable as possible. Because of this, guests can enjoy Signature Experiences on board, which include hosted stargazing on deck, regional cuisine - with cookery demonstrations and tastings, wildlife experts that host engaging talks, as well as off-the-beaten-track scenic cruising.
The cabins all feature interactive televisions, air conditioning, a safe and en-suite bathrooms with a shower. Cabins with a balcony are available and suites also feature a sitting area and fridge. If you choose the suite dreams package you will also receive sparking wine and fresh fruit upon arrival, as well as daily afternoon canapés, a bathrobe and slippers, a world atlas, binoculars and complimentary shuttle vouchers for use at your various ports.
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has dining to suit every taste for every meal of the day. The buffet breakfast offers everything from cereals and fruit to cooked options including; omelettes, kippers and pancakes. Or enjoy a continental breakfast in your cabin every morning. There is also a cabin service of light snacks throughout the day for if you get peckish.
Afternoon tea of finger sandwiches and cream scones, a great British tradition, can be enjoyed whilst a pianist plays along in the background in the Observatory Lounge.
Dinner offers five courses of delectable options all created to perfection. Fred. Olsen are able to cater for most dietary requirements and always offer vegetarian options and sugar free desserts. If you get peckish again later on in the evening or are late back from an evening excursion you can take advantage of the supper club with a hot and cold buffet until 11pm.
The ships have swimming pools so you can enjoy a cooling dip in between sunbathing sessions. If you want to relax you can treat yourself to a spa treatment, an afternoon playing bridge, or enjoy a good book from the library. If you prefer something more active you can try out the golf nets or fitness centre, partake in a fitness class or get involved with one of the ships enrichment programmes.
Fred. Olsen promises top flight evening entertainment for your enjoyment; with cabaret, dancing, comedians and music. Each ship has a range of bars and lounges for you to relax in, each with a unique feel and style.
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines shore tours offer excursions at a range of paces depending on what you are after. Leisurely sightseeing tours are available for those after a gentler pace or more energetic adventure tours for those looking for a little more excitement.
