Christmas Cruises

Festive Cruises with Fred. OlsenThe holiday season is a great time to cruise with Fred. Olsen. The welcoming, sociable atmosphere that's always found on our Christmas cruises is perfectly complemented by the yuletide festivities. Celebrate your festive holiday break with a Christmas cruise, Fred. Olsen style.

The ideal antidote to the Christmas rush at home - or indeed a wonderful way to celebrate the big day itself - our seasonal sailings can take you away with our beautiful Scandinavian cruises, or let you bask in some Winter sun, courtesy of our relaxing Canary Islands or Caribbean cruises. What better way to escape the pressures and dark nights of December in the UK?

Our Christmas cruises come with all the 'trimmings', from a beautiful Christmas tree and decorations, to a traditional Christmas dinner and themed events. And with great deals now available on our December departures, there's never been a better time to enjoy this special time of year.

And if you prefer to spend Christmas at home, you can still take one of our pre-Christmas cruises.
