Fred Olsen Ships

 

Fred Olsen Highlights

DINING

Dining at sea is anything but bland with Fred Olsen. Each ship has at least two main restaurants, with buffet and à la carte options throughout the day and a lavish five-course dinner served every evening. There are speciality restaurants for even more variety, as well as the option to enjoy an afternoon tea for an extra special treat. Whether you're dining à la carte or ordering room service, you can expect delicious dishes crafted by talented chefs and delivered with Fred Olsen's renowned attentiveness.

ENTERTAINMENT

Quality entertainment is a given onboard Fred Olsen ships. With live music, stand-up comedy and cabaret on offer in the main show lounge, the evenings are certainly never dull. After the show, it's time to take to the floor and have a dance to tunes provided by the resident band, or head to one of the bars and lounges for a laid-back drink, perhaps with some new friends.

THINGS TO DO

When it comes to onboard activities, there's something to suit every taste on Fred Olsen cruises - from arts and crafts and dance classes to lectures and quizzes. Foodies will love the chance to participate in tasting sessions and the cookery demonstrations on the Bolette and Borealis ships, while those looking to indulge in pure relaxation can unwind by the pool or enjoy a sumptuous spa treatment.

FAMILY

Fred Olsen cruises are generally not aimed towards families. You won't find water slides or babysitting services onboard, and there are only a limited number of highchairs on each ship, but there is a children's menu and the Little Skippers Club, providing activities for kids aged 5 to 11, runs during the peak holiday seasons.
 

USEFUL INFORMATION

The four Fred Olsen cruise liners - Bolette, Borealis, Balmoral and Braemar - are smaller ships carrying fewer passengers, therefore providing a more intimate cruising experience. There is a good range of room options to choose from, including interior, ocean view and balcony cabins, as well as cabins adapted for use by guests with mobility issues. Solo cruise travellers are also well catered for, with single cabins and suites and special activities and parties to mix with fellow guests.

DESTINATIONS

From the Norwegian Fjords to the jungles of Central America, Fred Olsen offers itineraries in some of the world's most spectacular locations. With UK cruise departures ranging from two-night Mini Cruises to worldwide cruise voyages, it's easier than ever to make your travel dreams a reality. And whether you're visiting the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, South America or the Arctic, Fred Olsen's ships can take you to incredible locations that larger ships can't reach.
