Having been in the cruise industry for over 150 years, Fred. Olsen cruises offers traditional, affordable, British-style voyages onboard their fleet of smaller ships. With attention to detail being at the heart of what they do, guests can expect exemplary service and a friendly, cosy atmosphere throughout the ship. As well as the amazing ports of call you get to visit along the way, there is also plenty to keep you entertained during your time onboard the ship. From varied dining both indoors and al fresco, leisure facilities including a gym, spa and swimming pools and evenings of cabaret acts, comedy nights and dancing, there's never a dull moment during your cruise. If this sounds like the perfect holiday, all that's left is to take a flight from Ireland and meet your chosen ship for an itinerary that could take you anywhere from the Mediterranean to the Far East and many other stunning destinations in between. With many cruises around the British Isles starting in Liverpool, you’re only a short flight or ferry ride away from jumping aboard. What's more, Fred. Olsen Oceans Club members can benefit from a range of cruise rewards such as discounts on future cruises to priority cruise news and more, all of which can still be claimed when booking future Fred Olsen cruises through Planet Cruise.

Fred. Olsen Cruises have carefully crafted their onboard entertainment programmes to be just as memorable as your time onshore. Whether you like to stay busy or are just looking for a relaxing afternoon activity during a peaceful sea day, there's plenty to suit every kind of cruiser. On board leisure facilities include swimming pools, Jacuzzis, a gym and spa treatments, so lounging by the pool whilst reading a book has never been easier.

Daytime

During the day, you'll find programmes dedicated to immersing you in the history and culture of the region, as well as arts, quizzes, performances and fitness classes. There's an emphasis on enrichment through insightful lectures by expert guest speakers, workshops and language classes, meaning you'll come away from your cruise holiday with not only memories, but knowledge and new skills as well. Looking to stay active while at sea? Join a yoga or pilates class, or take part in a fun dance class. No matter what you choose to do with your time, you're free to be as sociable as you wish and are guaranteed to make like-minded friends.

Evening

Once the sun goes down, Fred. Olsen Cruises invite you to simply sit back and watch the show - literally! From hilarious stand-up comedy acts to glamorous cabaret, nighttime is a real highlight onboard any cruise. Once the show is over, the fun doesn't have to stop. Stop by a lounge for your favourite cocktail, dance the night away, or simply relax with some live music providing the perfect backing track to your evening.

Fred. Olsen cruise ships each offer some fantastic dining experience and eateries. With some global influences, familiar favourites, and quintessentially British menus, each ship hosts a number restaurants with their own personalities - and many come with awe-inspiring ocean views.

Each ship has a main restaurant which serves classic five-course, a la carte dining. Each and every dish in these restaurants has been beautifully crafted onboard by highly skilled chefs. Choose from healthy options, elegant seafood, hearty steaks, and more.

As well as the main dining room, all Fred. Olsen ships have a more casual option onboard as well. In these, the dress code is less formal and dinner is served in an easy-going buffet style. There is always a wide selection of food available, so these venues are great for those travelling in a group with a variety of tastes.

For a special occasion onboard, or simply to celebrate your time away, consider dining at one of the onboard speciality restaurants. Choices include The Grill, where you'll find exquisite meals cooked to order, and Poolside, which serves food inspired by the ports on your cruise itinerary. 

Every day Fred. Olsen also hosts a sophisticated yet welcoming afternoon tea event. This is included in your cruise fare and can provide a lovely way to meet fellow guests whilst enjoying tea or coffee with sandwiches, scones, and cakes.

On any Fred. Olsen cruise ship you can guarantee gourmet satisfaction and the great company of like-minded cruisers and attentive staff alike.
