On any Fred Olsen ship there is no service charge on anything bought on board ship. The price your see is the price your pay. Normal tipping applies to waiters and cabin steward. Beware though if you cruise entails any Spanish port a sales tax may apply to any purchases bpought whilst docked or in Spanish territorial waters.

We use the Mannpower parking facility at Langton Dock in Liverpool. It costs £6 per day and they will take you to and from the ship. Their telephone no is 0151 281 3243. As Woods says, there is no service charge on purchases on board any of Fred's ships. Tipping is discretionary but for guidance the suggested amount is £2 per person per day for your waiter and the same for the lady that looks after your cabin but it is entirely up to you. Envelopes are provided for you to make whatever tip you wish to give.

It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
