As one of Britain's best-loved cruise lines, Fred. Olsen have over 170 years of maritime and seafaring experience, and are committed to making your cruise holiday special with carefully crafted itineraries on board their fleet of four smaller scale, intimate ships - Balmoral, Boudicca, Black Watch and Braemar. These small to mid size classic ships are less crowded than larger cruise ships with a friendly, intimate atmosphere on board complimented perfectly by the gracious, personal service provided by Fred. Olsen's crew.
Due to their size, Fred. Olsen's ships are able to sail into smaller, more remote ports and rivers which larger vessels can't reach, meaning every Fred. Olsen cruise will take you into the heart of the towns and cities and even closer to the natural beauty and scenic wonders of the destinations you will visit.
Fred. Olsen offer cruises sailing direct from the UK from ports all year round, including Southampton and Dover, and regularly offer regional departures from cities including Liverpool, Newcastle, Rosyth and more, making it easy to reach your ship. During the winter months, you can also enjoy fly / cruise holidays to the Canary Islands, the Caribbean and more exotic destinations, or even join one of Fred. Olsen's ships for a full world voyage.
Fred. Olsen are also perfect for independent travellers, with a number of rooms on their ships available for single passengers.
