Entertainment and shows

At Fred. Olsen we work tirelessly to ensure your on board experience is just as memorable and enjoyable as your time ashore. From relaxing with a good book in the library to savouring a captivating evening performance, there’s so much to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice. And of course how much or how little you join in is entirely up to you.

Daytime entertainment

You’ll find plenty to engage and inspire on days at sea; take the chance to brush up on a favourite hobby or perhaps learn a new skill. There are language classes, theatre workshops, photography talks, dancing lessons to get you in the ‘Strictly Ballroom’ spirit, and watercolour tutorials, just to name a few examples.

Don’t miss the opportunity to attend absorbing, insightful lectures from experts in their field. Previous subjects have ranged from astronomy to maritime history to wine tasting. We also host port talks to enhance your time ashore with knowledge of what is best to see and do.

Each cruise has different activities so be sure to check out what’s available when you’re on board. What’s more, unlike some of the larger cruise lines we have a full programme of entertainment on days when your ship is docked in port, as well as at sea, so you’ll always have something enjoyable to do, whenever you choose to.

Evening entertainment

When the lights go down, enjoy the sparkle of cabaret, comedy and music, as the evenings come alive with orchestras, string trios, pianists, musicians, entertainers and shows. Simply sit back and enjoy it all while you enjoy your favourite tipple, or that cocktail just how you like it.

Our smaller, more intimate theatres really allow you to absorb the atmosphere of each performance: you’ll almost feel like part of the show.

Afterwards, you might choose to take a stroll under the stars on the open deck, or dance the night away to your favourite songs in one of the lounges. And with dance hosts on board every cruise, no-one need ever go too long without a dance partner.
