Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has defined and refined the cruise experience, and judging by the number of passengers that come back time and again, they seem to have styled it to perfection.
Braemar, Black Watch, Boudicca and Balmoral are smaller ships where the emphasis is on you – a welcome guest. Smaller, Friendlier Ships means more interesting and varied itineraries. Fred. Olsen ships can sail to smaller ports that bigger ships cannot reach so there is less tendering and more time ashore. As a family run business, Fred. Olsen offers a more sociable atmosphere on board than ships with thousands of passengers; a friendlier service where guests are remembered by name, not just a number.
By operating smaller vessels they can moor in the very heart of things where it is often a short walk down the gang-way to shore rather than a lengthy tender ride to port. What’s more you will be able to come and go as you please, maybe to pop back for lunch or drop off your shopping bags before you head back ashore to explore some more.
