Our Cruise Ships
Step on board Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' friendly ships and start your holiday with a smile. As our cruise ships are smaller and more personal, you’ll feel relaxed and at home straight away and will soon get to know the crew and your fellow passengers. What could possibly be better than seeing the world, except enjoying it with new-found friends?
Each of our beautiful cruise ships has its own distinct personality, but what they have in common is the comfort and great service that we are so proud of. From great bars and restaurants through to entertainment and relaxation, no matter where your cruise is sailing you can rest assured that you are in for an unforgettable journey.
Balmoral is our largest and newest cruise ship, named after the Scottish home of the Royal Family. Still smaller than most cruise ships today, there are 710 cabins and suites and generous public space for the 1,300 guests on board.
The main restaurant is Ballindalloch (named after the Speyside village and castle), while the two other formal restaurants - Avon and Spey - are also in keeping with the Scottish theme and are named after two of Scotland’s most beautiful salmon rivers.
There’s a comfy pub with occasional live music or comedy, cabaret and shows in the Neptune Lounge, or drift away with a cool drink and spectacular seascapes in the Observatory Lounge.
Enjoy every moment with us on board Balmoral.Read more
Boudicca was the heroic warrior queen of the British Iceni tribe. And we like to think our truly British, world class cruise ship lives up to the name.
Up to 800 people can enjoy a cruise on board Boudicca – not the thousands to be found on most ships these days – so there’s plenty of space for everyone. She is also small enough to reach shores that many rival cruise ships cannot, so guests on board can get closer to the sights that they want to see.
Inside, indulge yourself at the Tintagel and Four Seasons Restaurants. Lounge around on the Lounge Deck, or in one of our two Jacuzzis. Or splash around in one of our three pools. And when the sun’s shining, our tasty poolside buffet will hit the spot.
There’ll be days and nights to remember on board Boudicca.Read more
Cruise ships were once famous for their style and charm. Our Black Watch cruise ship harks back to those days, when quality and service were taken for granted. Sleek and intimate, with cabins and suites for 804 people, Black Watch has a warm welcome waiting for you.
In fact our UK cruisers were so impressed with Black Watch that they voted her 'Best for Entertainment' in the 2012 Cruise Critic 'Cruisers' Choice UK Awards’*, stating that they were especially impressed with the service on board: “they consistently went the extra mile”.
So, be captivated by the entertaining cabaret at the Neptune Lounge,and fire-up your taste buds for a treat at the Glentanar Restaurant. Or, share a relaxing drink over panoramic views across the ocean in our Observatory Lounge.
Join us on board Black Watch for a relaxing cruise holiday departing from the UK.
