Why Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Is Perfect For A Norwegian Fjords Cruise - January 2020

GoCruise – 22nd January 2020


With almost every operator offering the same unrivalled experience around the breathtaking Norwegian Fjords, it might be hard to choose which cruise line is best for you. Other cruise lines might boast their size, dining or onboard amenities, but Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines takes a more subtle approach by focusing on intimacy and exclusive moments.

With all four of Fred. Olsen’s vessels receiving refurbishments over the last four years, their modern, stylish and luxurious touches are splendid additions when sailing to the fjords.

So if we haven’t tempted you already, here are some of the main reasons why you should take a cruise with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

Smaller Vessels

While it’s no secret that Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has smaller vessels than your average cruise line, there are several benefits that come with picking a more intimate ship. Having a lower maximum capacity, ships generally feel less crowded, dining venues always have space so that diners can pick almost any restaurant for a meal. During the day, guests won’t have to wrestle for a sunbed or have to stay in one location to keep one – everything on board is built for the ship’s capacity.

Secondly, ports will feel less touristy. If you are visiting a large city, an influx of 5,000 passengers might be slightly overwhelming, but if you are visiting a small town (which the Norwegian Fjords has a lot of), you reach the point where you are more likely to meet your fellow cruisers than a local. Plus, with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, you will be put into smaller groups and given a more authentic experience that may not be offered by larger operators.

Entertainment & Activities

For Fred. Olsen, high-flying shows and technically advanced activities are just not their style. If you prefer intellectual talks and small production shows, a cruise like this is for you. Diverse lectures from leading experts in the field, itinerary-specific lectures and special interest talks are all great ways to immerse yourself in the destination and get a better understanding of the history.

As well as the interesting talks in the evening, there is a variety of daytime activities to keep cruisers active during sea days. Arts and craft lessons, fun quizzes, morning yoga classes, ballroom dancing, language classes and theatre workshops are just a few worth mentioning. If you prefer to be less active during your cruise, there is an abundance of bars and lounges to visit, capturing the best views on board at every turn.

Norwegian Roots

Being an independent Norwegian company, Fred. Olsen is more familiar with the Norwegian Fjords than any other cruise line. The cruise line’s heritage spans all the way back to 1848, operating through five generations of the Olsen family and taking pride in its heritage along the way. With such a long history in the cruising industry, Fred. Olsen knows what their customers like and really puts a focus on delivering the best cruise service possible.
