A mark of Distinction.




Welcome to the Fred Olsen fellowship.

Fred. Olsen cruises are operated by a family-run company, proud of their fleet of smaller, more intimate cruise ships which is made up of vessels called Black Watch, Braemar, Boudicca and Balmoral. This unique cruise line understands that passengers like a more personalised experience and one that is unashamedly British.

The personable and long-serving crew are well-versed in ensuring you relax the moment you step aboard. For many passengers, it is the happy blend of agreeable companions that is the Fred. Olsen distinction. Wherever you choose to cruise, you will soon feel part of the fraternity and enjoy some friendly ‘home-away-from-home’ camaraderie. Featured destinations include much of Europe as well as some outstanding Africa cruises, whilst there is also the possibility to explore Scandinavia and the Arctic Circle.

You expect quality on a good cruise ship, but Fred Olsen knows from their vast experience, and from listening to their customers, what makes a special cruise; one that is a real emotional experience and one that leaves us wanting more. On-board these cruises, everyone is treated as the individual they are. The staff has a real interest in the passengers, their likes and their dislikes, and have an amazing desire to please. We know that the home we leave at the end of each cruise will be the home we enter next time we board a Fred. Olsen Cruise Ship.
