Founded in 1848 in Norway, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has a long history. Now in it’s fifth generation of the family, Fred. Olsen pride themselves on having adopted a traditional British style of cruising, offering a more intimate, classic cruise experience with and attentive service. 

Offering smaller ships than other major cruise companies, they can access smaller, out of the way ports their competitors are unable to visit. Travelling to over 240 ports across almost 80 countries, cruises range from 2-119 nights. With a rich heritage, the fleet of four ships offers a taste of traditional, British cruising ideal for first time and experienced mature passengers.
