Small ships, not small print

No clauses, no tricks, no caveats. Just a plain and simple guarantee that your booking is safe with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, no matter what the world throws at us all. Designed to give you every reassurance during these unprecedented times, our enhanced Plain Sailing Guarantee applies to all cruises departing in 2021.

No risk deposits

We know the world feels a little uncertain at the moment which is why we have updated our Plain Sailing Guarantee to include a no risk deposit. Make a new booking now for a 2021 cruise and if you change your mind about travelling nearer the time, we will either move the deposit you have paid to an alternative cruise with no admin fees or refund it to you in full. Just let us know no later than when your final payment is due (or your interim payment for a longer cruise) and the team will take care of the rest.

Transfer on your terms

We will also transfer your cruise or give you a sailing credit if you cannot travel due to testing positive for Coronavirus. There will be no administration fees and you can choose any cruise within 12 months of your original sailing date.

No quibble refunds

If we have to cancel your cruise for any reason, whilst we would love it if you transferred to another, you can of course have a full refund with no quibbles, at any time.

Fred. Olsen's unique Enjoyment Promise

We want you to book your cruise with us with complete confidence. That’s why Fred. Olsen Jnr himself insists each and every booking is covered with his Enjoyment Promise. It means that if within 48 hours of sailing, you are not enjoying your ocean cruise, we will arrange to take you home at our expense and give you a full refund. 

As the world is changing constantly, it may also be necessary for our Plain Sailing Guarantee to change without notice. You will always be able to see our latest version on our website (fredolsencruises.com/travel-confidence). The benefits above replace our standard transfer policy detailed in our Booking Conditions.

We’ve kept things beautifully simple and straightforward, just like the family-run business we are. We look forward to welcoming you on board when the time is right for us all.

Destinations & Excursions

Cruising from ports across the UK and Europe, Fred. Olsen cruises offer a vast array of exciting ocean cruise itineraries to every corner of the globe—helping you to experience more of this amazing world amid truly relaxed and laidback surroundings.

From the timeless seas of the British Isles to some of Europe’s most iconic destinations, including the Norwegian Fjords, the Greek Islands, and the historic charms of the Adriatic—Fred. Olsen offer an eclectic range of 7-14 night itineraries departing from ports around the UK. Or, if you’re longing to travel further afield, Fred. Olsen can take you to Asia, Australia, and the Americas thanks to their collection of outstanding intercontinental cruise holidays.

Having clocked up millions of miles cruising the world’s great oceans, Fred. Olsen are also perfectly placed to offer their guests a range of exciting shore excursions. Whether you want to trek with camels in Algeria, enjoy a delicious tea sampling experience in Morocco, or visit the Taj Mahal in India—you can experience more of the world’s wonders with Fred. Olsen.

Meet the Fred Olsen Fleet

The Fred Olsen Fleet comprises four elegant ocean liners, including Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca, and Black Watch.

Balmoral

Balmoral is named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, and the Scottish theme runs throughout the main dining venues – the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey – where guests can enjoy tantalising menus prepared by expert chefs.

Balmoral is small enough to navigate size-restricted waterways such as the Kiel Canal, providing fantastic scenic cruising opportunities, and retains the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for.

Braemar

A timeless style flows throughout Braemar's interiors. Large windows bathe the ship's public areas in natural light and provide spectacular views, and the polished wooden fixtures, decadent fabrics and elegant décor assume the feel of a traditional country house hotel. One of the focal points on Braemar is the beautifully painted, five-deck-high Atrium area, while the cascading outside decks at the stern enhance the ship's elegant profile and offer stunning vistas no matter which outside deck you're on.

Boudicca

Welcome aboard Boudicca, the most beautiful, timeless, and elegant ship of the Fred Olsen fleet. Taking design influence from the ocean liners of old, this stylish liner is beloved by long-term Fred Olsen fans—providing a sense of nostalgia and charm not often seen on modern ocean liners. Boudicca carries 880 guests, and offers a range of restaurant and lounge venues, so you can get acquainted with new friends in blissful comfort and luxury.

Black Watch

Sleek, intimate, and stylish, Black Watch harks back to a time when cruise ships were revered for their elegance and charm—providing an authentic, no-gimmicks cruise experience. With space for up to 804 guests, an intimate and relaxed environment is guaranteed, and Fred Olsen have taken care to flood the public spaces with natural light—making for a warm, welcoming, and relaxing stay on board.

Bolette

Fred. Olsen’s flagship Bolette is everything that guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship. Proudly bearing the name of Fred. Olsen Jr.’s great-great-grandmother, as many other Olsen vessels have over the years, she exudes classic, elegant style in her exterior and interior design, features spacious and comfortable public areas, and has all the facilities and special touches you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

While she’s one of the largest ships, by overall size, in the Fred. Olsen fleet, Bolette has capacity for less than 1,400 guests. So, in keeping with the smaller-ship ethos, you’ll find that you’re not overcrowded on board, and have plenty of space in which to indulge yourself in the stylish dining venues, enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and fantastic entertainment at the bars, lounges and theatres, and while away the hours by the all-season pool. And of course, with our friendly staff providing our typical level of personal, attentive service, there’s an intimate feel to the on board experience too.

Borealis

Bearing a name that previously bestowed an Olsen-owned vessel in the 1940s, and inspires thoughts of the Aurora Borealis, elegant Borealis proudly connects with, and represents, Fred. Olsen’s founding family’s history and Norwegian heritage. Stylish, spacious and comfortable, with capacity for fewer than 1,400 guests, she’s in keeping with Fred. Olsen's commitment to offering a more traditional style of cruising.

But while Borealis’ capacity is smaller than many cruise vessels, she’s still one of the largest ships, by size, in the fleet. On board Borealis you’ll find you’re never overcrowded. There is always ample room in which to indulge yourself in the stylish dining venues, enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and fantastic entertainment at the bars, lounges and theatres, and while away the hours by the all-season pool. And of course, with friendly staff providing typical level of personal, attentive service, there’s an intimate feel to the on board experience too.
