Bringing the world closer to you… Fred. Olsen’s smaller, more intimately sized ships suit group travel particularly well.As a family-run company we prefer a more personal approach to service. We favour smaller, more intimately-sized ships which help to create a warmer, more sociable atmosphere on-board, which is ideal for group travel. Everything is designed to make the ship feel just like a home-from-home, where everyone can relax and be themselves. What’s more, our size allows us to sail closer to some of the world’s most fascinating destinations. Whether sailing the Caribbean Sea or the Arctic Ocean, there’s a special ambience and warmth on-board all of our ships. It’s what we call the Fred. Olsen difference. In 2016/17 Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines will sail from ten regional departure ports around the UK, to over 240 different ports of call worldwide, bringing the world closer to you.

Fred. Olsen offer fantastic winter sailings to Norway for a chance to see the Northern Lights; City Break cruises, with overnight stays in some of Europe’s finest cities; week-long summer holidays to Norwegian Fjords, with some unforgettable scenic cruising; two-week trips to the Baltic, Europe or Med; 2-4 night taster cruises; and fly-cruises from Gatwick or Manchester airport to the Canaries, Cape Verde and Africa. There really is something to suit all tastes!

And with departures from 10 convenient, regional ports around the UK in 2014, Fred. Olsen is fast becoming known as the ‘local, global cruise line’.
