If you're tempted by the thought of a short cruising break, or are new to cruising and looking for an opportunity to try a cruise for the first time, what better way to test the water than on board one of Fred. Olsen's Mini Cruises. A quick break is always a welcome escape from it all, bringing with it some well-earned time away, a change of routine and even chances to see and experience somewhere new.
On a Fred. Olsen Mini Cruise you can spend a few nights aboard a smaller, friendlier cruise ship and take the opportunity to enjoy some rest and relaxation while discovering fine destinations which are closer to home. With departures from local ports around the UK, there’s no need to travel too far to meet your ship and once on board you’ll sample the same friendly, attentive service, delectable dining and fantastic entertainment that you would on a longer sailing.
The choice of sailings and destinations available is varied. Perhaps head to France to sail the picturesque River Seine, take in the historical and architectural delights of Rouen and visit charming Honfleur; cruise to the Netherlands and Belgium to discover the highlights of stunning cities such as Amsterdam and Antwerp; sample the Irish ‘craic’ in Dublin on a short cruise to the Emerald Isle; explore Scottish Highlands and Islands; or take in the spectacular Norwegian fjords. Whichever cruise you choose, your break will be relaxing and rewarding from the moment you embark.
If you are thinking of booking one of the brilliant Mini Cruises below you may want to consider some practical cruise extras, which are offered to make your experience as simple and stress-free as possible. Fred. Olsen can assist you with organising hotels and other travel options, as well as travel insurance to give you complete peace of mind.
