Meet the Fred Olsen Fleet

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

Balmoral

Balmoral is the flagship of the Fred Olsen fleet, and features 710 well-appointed guest cabins and suites. Named after the Scottish residence of the Royal Family, Balmoral has a distinct Scottish feel, with each of its wonderful public dining venues named after areas of the Highlands. Despite her size, Balmoral is still small enough to navigate narrow waterways, including the Kiel Canal, so guests can look forward to some truly inspiring scenery aboard this wonderful liner.

Braemar

Marrying timeless style and elegance with a wealth of innovative features, Braemar is a classic ocean liner built to ferry her passengers in absolute comfort, safety, and style. More akin to a luxury country house hotel than a modern ocean liner, Braemar carries just 929 guests, providing an intimate feel that’s bolstered by the friendly and attentive crew.

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.
