Fred Olsen Cruise Lines
The company originated in Hvitsten, a small town on Oslofjord in Norway, in 1848 when three Olsen brothers – Fredrik Christian, Petter and Andreas – bought their first ships and began an international shipping company.

Now into the fifth generation of the family, they operate companies skilled in various aspects of the cruise and passenger shipping trade as well as aviation, ships’ crewing, shipbuilding and offshore industries.

Aside from the transportation industries, the Fred Olsen group also has interests in the luxury hotel sector, estate management, property development, and electronics companies.

Named after the Scottish home of the Royal Family. Still smaller than most cruise ships today, there are 710 cabins and suites and generous public space for the 1,300 guests on board.

The main restaurant is Ballindalloch (named after the Speyside village and castle), while the two other formal restaurants are Avon and Spey – named after two of Scotland’s most beautiful salmon rivers.

There’s a comfy pub with occasional live music or comedy, cabaret and shows in the Neptune Lounge, or drift away with a cool drink and spectacular seascapes in the Observatory Lounge.

Cruise ships were once famous for their style and charm. And our Black Watch cruise ship is a hark back to those days, when quality and service were taken for granted. Sleek and intimate, with cabins and suites for 804 people, Black Watch has a warm welcome waiting for you.

Black Watch was voted 'Best for Entertainment' in the 2012 Cruise Critic 'Cruisers' Choice UK Awards’*. Only UK cruisers voted, and they were especially impressed with our service: “they consistently went the extra mile”.

So, be captivated by the entertaining cabaret at the Neptune Lounge,and fire-up your taste buds for a treat at the Glentanar Restaurant. Or, share a relaxing drink over panoramic views across the ocean in our Observatory Lounge.

Boudicca was the heroic warrior queen of the British Iceni tribe. And we like to think our truly British, world class cruise ship lives up to the name.

Up to 800 people can enjoy a cruise on board Boudicca – not the thousands to be found on most ships these days – so there’s plenty of space for everyone. And our cruise ship is small enough to reach shores many rival cruise ships cannot.

Inside, indulge yourself at the Tintagel and Four Seasons Restaurants. Lounge around on the Lounge Deck, or in one of our two Jacuzzis. Or splash around in one of our three pools. And when the sun’s shining, our tasty poolside buffet will hit the spot.

There’ll be days and nights to remember on board Boudicca.

Braemar will capture your senses - with large windows, polished wood, shining brass fittings and decadent fabrics. A five-deck high atrium area and cascading decks at the stern give Braemar space and intimacy in perfect balance.

Have a tasty lunch at the Palms Café and a delicious dinner at our grand Thistle and Grampian restaurants. Refresh at the Marquee poolside bar, or have a cosy drink in our Morning Light Pub. Spin to the music at the Neptune Lounge, and take afternoon tea at the Coral Club. Leave the world behind in our serene Atlantis Spa, and surround yourself with horizon, as you walk the promenade.
