What makes Fred. Olsen different?

At Fred. Olsen, we understand what makes a cruise holiday so special. It’s sailing to incredible, “must-visit” destinations far and wide in pure comfort with like-minded travellers; enjoying fine dining as you glide gently across the ocean; discovering out-of-this-world experiences; and forging friendships which will last a lifetime. This is why we expertly craft every single one of our cruises – from weekend city breaks to around the world voyages – to ensure your time on board with us is simply unforgettable.

We don’t like to make a fuss – you won’t hear us shouting about robotic bars and expensive on board thrill rides – and our ships aren’t as new as the megaships which are flooding the market. Instead we concentrate on making sure the key elements of your cruise holiday are done right and are committed to making sure that every Fred. Olsen cruise is a relaxing, engaging and memorable experience. Using our extensive knowledge of the industry, and making the most of our smaller-sized ships, we aim to help you discover the best of every destination you visit. We can take you closer to spectacular cities, tucked-away villages, breathtaking wonders and more, offering scenic cruising through stunning size-restricted fjords, rivers and canals along the way.

And, with departures from 10 ports around the UK, you’ll have the chance to explore parts of England, Scotland and Ireland before embarking on your cruise. So, not only do you get to visit some of the world’s most spectacular destinations with Fred., you may also have time to discover many of Britain’s most iconic towns, cities and attractions too.
