Fred Olsen Cruises

The Fred. Olsen Cruises name is synonymous with elegant, high quality, traditional cruising. Common Misspelling: Fred Olson.

The Fred. Olsen Cruise Line fleet, of much loved ships, the Black WatchBraemar, plus the modern Boudicca and Balmoral, offer 4 different types of cruise holiday experiences all with exceptional friendly service.

During the summer months Fred. Olsen cruises depart from the UK (ports include Southampton, Dover, Liverpool, Newcastle, Rosyth, Greenock, Belfast and Dublin) on Med cruises, Canary Island cruises, Scandinavia cruises and Baltic and Fjords cruises. With these sailings you can avoid flying, and begin your holiday the second you step aboard a Fred. Olsen cruise ship.

What's included:

Stand out Fred Olsen Features:
•Morning coffee with biscuits and afternoon sandwiches and cake
•Gala buffet
•Vistas special interest programme
•Transfer service from select UK Rail Stations to the Cruise Terminal

Also included:
• All meals plus afternoon in-cabin snacks
•All evening entertainment including cabarets and dancing
•Comfortable en-suite accommodation including TV, hairdryer and safe

•Fitness Centre

Its smaller ships mean that you can moor in the very heart of the ports for your convenience. As such, Fred. Olsen Cruises have established themselves as a cruise line with an excellent reputation for interesting and varied itineraries, many with musical themes or special interest programmes.

With a generally smaller type of cruise ship, service aboard a Fred. Olsen cruise is more attentive than you would find on some larger cruise lines. In the evenings, chefs will ensure everything is cooked to your liking, likewise the bartenders will mix your cocktails exactly as you please.

Every night Fred. Olsen cruises provide lively and diverse onboard entertainment, ensuring an evening to remember, alternatively amble around the open decks under a star kissed sky.

Anniversary cruises, traditional cruises, those interested in interesting destinations, or musical themed cruises.

What our customers say

Dear Iglu, we had a wonderful holiday to the Baltic on the Eclipse departing in August. All of the departments at Iglu, pre-booking, post-booking, accounts, tours and upgrades were extremely helpful to us and we will definitely recommend to friends and will use you again when we next want to book a cruise. I would mention Mike, Mic, Violetta, Emma, Janice and Carol who were all very nice people to talk with and who all helped us in different ways. The advice to book our tour in St Petersburg with Tour de Force was the best tour we could have had.

Best Regards
E & J. Hamilton
(September 2014)
