On Board Experience

There's something special about a Fred. Olsen cruise.

Why do our guests feel so at home, relaxed and invigorated on a Fred. Olsen cruise?

It’s because we do our utmost to make every part of your cruise experience special.

So, from the moment you step on board one of our amazing cruise ships, we’ll get to know you by name, find out what your favourite drink is and see what makes you smile, so that from beginning to end, your cruise is truly memorable and tailored to suit you.

Friendships that last are made on every Fred. Olsen cruise holiday – with crew members and fellow guests alike. Often people will arrange to cruise with friends they met on their previous trip, or when their favourite members of staff are on board.

We have a whole range of cruise entertainment and experiences for our guests to enjoy on our holidays. From great live performances and on board shows through to fine dining, cocktails and themed cruises there is always something going on to keep you entertained as we sail between some of the world's most incredible destinations.

Experience the Fred. Olsen Difference


We work tirelessly to ensure that your on board experience is just as memorable and enjoyable as your time ashore. Our diverse entertainment programme features a host of fabulous acts and activities. Every cruise will have guest speakers and performers, arts & craft lessons and quizzes. We also have yoga, pilates and other fitness activities available for you to take part in as much as you please.

Take the chance to brush up on a new hobby or learn a new skill, with choices from photography talks, ballroom dancing lessons, language classes, theatre workshops or watercolour tutorials, to name just a few examples. Each cruise has different activities, so be sure to check the Daily Times once you're on board to see what's available on each day.

Don't miss the opportunity to attend interesting and insightful port talks from knowledgeable experts - previous subjects have included astronomy, maritime history, wine tasting and crime-fighting. Our port talks are carefully selected to provide our guests with the very best information for when you venture ashore.

Then, when the lights go down, enjoy the sparkle of cabaret, comedy and music – evenings come alive with string trios, pianists, musicians, entertainers and shows. Simply sit back and savour it all as you sip your favourite tipple, or that cocktail made just for you. Afterwards, you may choose to take a stroll under the stars on the open deck, or dance the night away to your favourite songs with your friends, loved-ones and fellow guests.

Leisure and Activities

A cruise holiday is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself in a way you don't necessarily have time to do at home. Whether it's the chance to perfect your golf swing, enjoy a bit of pampering in our Spa, or just relax on deck with a book and occasional dip in the jacuzzi - a Fred. Olsen cruise has it all!

Dining to suit every taste...

Enjoy a taste of our superb food, made the way you like it, at every meal you take on board one of our cruise ships.

One of the highlights of a Fred. Olsen cruise is the food. Expert chefs lovingly produce great dishes night after night. Every day menus are something special, with appetisers like herb-marinated salmon or crab cocktail and indulgent main courses like sirloin steak with a choice of sauces, pan seared red snapper with scallops, slow roast duckling confit or balsamic braised lamb shank.

Of course there are vegetarian dishes and healthy choices too, with an emphasis on fish dishes inspired by our Norwegian heritage; so even if you’re watching your diet, you’re in for a treat!

The desserts are every bit as tasty (think white chocolate parfait or mango apple tart) and the sugar free option means no-one has to miss out.
