Fred. Olsen 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.
That’s why your experience on board is different to other cruise lines. Fred. Olsen want you to get beyond the standard tourist perspective, so you can discover real insights about the culture and nature of the places you are visiting.
Their brilliant on board team pride themselves on making everything not just fascinating but fun.
There’s no comparison to discovering the world on a Fred. Olsen ship. Find out more about the life on board Bolette, Borealis and Balmoral. They can’t wait to welcome you aboard.
Proudly bearing the name of the wife of one of the original founding brothers – Petter Olsen, Bolette harbours an historic connection to the Olsen family. Exuding classic, elegant style in her exterior and interior design, and featuring spacious and comfortable public areas, as well as just 690 cabins, our flagship leads our fleet of smaller ships by example
Thanks to her ability to cruise at higher speeds than other ships, Borealis – sister ship of our flagship Bolette – is perfectly suited for sailing our longer voyages across the globe. Cruising faster means she can include more stops, scenic discoveries and highlights into each itinerary.
Beautiful Balmoral is small enough to navigate Europe’s most picturesque waterways so guests can enjoy hours of scenic cruising. Balmoral retains a warm, civilised atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space, including an al-fresco restaurant.
Fred. Olsen’s new ‘Journey Navigators’ are an innovation that comes from what is perhaps their most dearly held belief; “It’s all about the people”.
Unique to Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines and joining them on all cruises from 2023, they are here to entertain and inspire, with their insights and stories. They will host talks, presentations and private lunches, and are available to anyone who wishes to find out more about their journey. And please don’t worry, if sitting and relaxing is what you are on the cruise to do, that’s fine too.
You will find their Journey Navigators – including a Nature Scout, Culture Curator, Entertainment Host and Maritime Guide – on board every Fred. Olsen ship.
To compliment their new Journey Navigators they have also designed five new signature experiences for 2023, which you will find on every Fred. Olsen sailing.
Each experience has been created to encapsulate what they think is special about the way Fred. Olsen cruise and to make sure that those who love to travel get the most out of their journey and the destinations they visit with them.
