The Fred. Olsen Fleet

Why Smaller is Better

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines recently welcomed two new ships into their fleet. Never sailing with more than 1,400 guests on board, they are wonderfully spacious with wide-open decks, lots of lovely restaurants and lounge spaces, and a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Their smaller ships carry fewer passengers, so their crew can get to know each of their guests.

They believe in a different way of cruising – Explore The Olsen Way.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Holidays

At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, they believe a cruise is different to a holiday. A cruise is about the joy of the journey, as well as the destinations you visit, and exploring the world from the wonderful vantage point of the ship and the sea.

They plan their cruises differently. Their team of Journey Planners change the itineraries every year – unlike some other cruise lines who always sail the same routes. They also put as much time into planning scenic cruising on every sailing as they do in choosing the destinations themselves. As a result, they have won Cruise Critic’s award for best itineraries 5 years in a row.

Their smaller-sized ships have been elegantly designed and they all look and feel like ships with wide open deck spaces as well as lounges and restaurants which have been meticulously planned to ensure you have a wonderful experience. The smaller size of their ships also allows them access to more interesting places, such as Norway’s lesser known Fjords. It also means they can dock in the heart of some of the world’s most fascinating cities.

With sailings from seven departure ports around the UK, your next Fred. Olsen cruise is closer than you think.
