Diplomatically speaking - you have booked a 3* cruise line so you will get the same sort of clientele that frequents a 3* hotel. Have you been over to cruise critic boards to read what people there say? It is not very active as FO appeal to and market to a British audience [which is another downside...IMO]. Americans are generally more 'lively'.

Well the passengers I sailed with on Fred Olsen seemed a pretty 'lively' bunch, and I was a mere 33 years old... You make your own entertainment. It won't be a party ship, but it won't go to bed at 10pm. FO do have a reputation for 'older' passengers, but they're not all past it. I'm sailing with them again next year, and have no worries.

I've sailed with several cruise lines and do not consider Fred Olsen to be 3* in any way at all.

I know 20 people in one place sounds like a lot but the size of this place was enough to provide everyone with their own space and you never felt like...

Breakfast with the People of the Forest

By Isabelle Larder

Isabelle Larder's blog

Breakfast with the people of the forest…it sounds conspicuous, but it is something I had the pleasure of experiencing recently whilst in Singapore.You may be familiar with the word Orangutan, but did you know it is a word derived from the Malay and Indonesian language? Orang means person and hutan means forest or jungle = People of the Forest which makes sense as the Orangutan species are the closest living relatives to humans. 97% alike in our genetics various case studies have found.A...
