A taste of adventure

With Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, you can experience new cultures and cuisines from all over the world


Fred. Olsen does things differentl­y. Every year, the company’s Journey Planners design fresh itinerarie­s from scratch, always opting for the more interestin­g and unusual routes. So, not only will you be able to witness the finest nature and wildlife the world has to offer, but you can also immerse yourself in the local culture and cuisine at every destinatio­n. As a result, Fred. Olsen has won the Cruise Critic’s Best for Itinerarie­s award an impressive five times.


Founded by the Olsen brothers in 1848, the company is still family-run today and offers 175 years of maritime expertise. On board, you’ll find the atmosphere is always warm, friendly and uncrowded, as Fred. Olsen believes smaller is better, so its ships never sail with more than 1,200 guests. Their smaller size also allows them to reach more interestin­g places, whether that’s sailing through narrow fjords or docking closer to the

heart of beautiful cities. Add to that great entertainm­ent, speciality restaurant­s serving exquisite dishes and a spa offering relaxing beauty treatments, and you have the perfect getaway.


Fred. Olsen has recently re-imagined its on-board offering with five new Signature Experience­s that are designed to help you get the most out of your cruise. Food lovers will relish the Treats of the Region sessions, which give you an authentic taste of your destinatio­n, as well as the chance to learn how to make the dishes yourself. Plus, The View restaurant serves local dishes for each port of call – using locally sourced ingredient­s. With all these culinary delights to enjoy, it’s little wonder Fred. Olsen welcomes back more returning guests than any other cruise line*. Plus, on average, 90% of guests rates its food as “Excellent” or “Good”!
