on 29th Sep 2016, By

We sailed in Fred Olsen's BRAEMAR on what was described as French Rivers Cruise. It was our first time sailing in BRAEMAR and we have decided that despite the short comings of a very inadequate...

FRED. OLSEN CRUISES / Balmoral / Norwegian Fjords

on 14th Sep 2016, By

Had travelled on Balmoral 4 years ago, so had a fair idea of what to expect. A general comment is the ship is tired, simple things such as a renewal of the TV's in the cabins would be an...

FRED. OLSEN CRUISES / Balmoral / Norwegian Fjords

on 13th Sep 2016, By

Have been on a few ships (QM2, Oceana and the Anthem of The Seas) and this is my 4th time on the Balmoral and can say this is my favourite. It doesn’t have the cool and fashionable things like...

FRED. OLSEN CRUISES / Braemar / Western Europe

on 12th Sep 2016, By

We've just finished a great cruise with Fred Olsen. Cabins are a little smaller than some lines but are fine with plenty of storage space. The showers are quite small so could be a little awkward...

FRED. OLSEN CRUISES / Boudicca / Arctic

on 9th Sep 2016, By

I have only been on one Olsen cruise before, in 2015, to Scandinavia, which was very good. I wanted to go to Greenland, so because of my past experience with Olsen I went on a cruise with them...

FRED. OLSEN CRUISES / Braemar / Mini Cruises

on 31st Aug 2016, By

My wife and I are not big fans of the short break 2 or 3 night cruises across the Channel, as our previous experiences have found them to be full of stag and hen parties. Having said that, we...

FRED. OLSEN CRUISES / Boudicca / Atlantic

on 30th Aug 2016, By

This cruise exceeded all expectations. We expected the weather to be cold and packed all our winter thermals. Apart from one day crossing the Atlantic we sat out on deck enjoying the sunshine....

FRED. OLSEN CRUISES / Black Watch / Arctic

on 21st Aug 2016, By

As it was a 26 night cruise I'll try to make it concise - the cruise did get off to a bad start as the ship was waiting in Dover and the passengers were in Tilbury! Anyway after a long coach ride...
