Fred. Olsen Cruises

Black Watch

OVERVIEW: Black Watchis a comfortable but not luxurious ship best suited to the older traveler who wants a British cruise environment, wearing relatively formal attire. Cruises are well organized, with interesting itineraries and free shuttle buses in many ports of call.

Balmoral

OVERVIEW: Balmoralis best suited to British couples and single travelers wanting destination-intensive cruising in a ship that has European quality, style, and character, a sense of space, comfortable surroundings, decent facilities, and realistic pricing, and that provides good value for money.

By McLeod, Aylesbury on 8th Apr 2014
Just returned from Fred.Olsen cruise to Cape Verde Islands on Braemar. I think I prefer it to the Balmoral. Just a couple of little moans. On the first night all the bars were busy, but no waiters. The quickest way to get "refreshment" was to go to the...  Read More >>

By Pullen, Slough on 8th Apr 2014

Fred. Olsen Cruises

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is all about tradition and as a family-run company with a long shipping heritage, the moment you step aboard either Balmoral, Braemar, Black Watch or Boudicca you are greeted with a personal and friendly service, which then continues throughout your cruise.

Fred. Olsen’s  ships are large enough to be spacious and uncrowded, but still small enough to be the kind of place where you can feel comfortable, relaxed and able to put your feet up.   Their size advantage means they can take you to places that some of the mammoth cruise ships can’t, close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and breathtaking landscapes.

On board you'll find everything you need for an unforgettable holiday, including a selection of bars, restaurants, lounges, shops, a salon & gym, swimming pools and even golf nets, where you can practice your swing on days at sea.  With fewer guests, not only will you enjoy a more personal experience, you'll find you won't be fighting for space with thousands of others. 

Cruise with Fred. Olsen and you'll enjoy great value with so much included in the price.  So you can relax knowing that once you've booked your cruise holiday, almost everything's covered.   You'll also find that the optional on board extras that are chargeable - such as wine, drinks and salon treatments - are reasonably priced and in Sterling, so you don't have to worry about exchange rates.

Now you can save even more with Fred. Olsen's 'All Inclusive' Upgrade.  Now only £10 per person per night, on many 2014/15 cruise holidays.  You’ll be able to enjoy selected beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks all day and evening. What’s more, many premium drinks and cocktails are available at half price too so you won't have to worry about your bar bill, or having that extra drink.

Experience for yourself the Fred. Olsen difference.
