Brabant cruising the River Rhine

If you haven’t tried river cruising before, you’re in for a very special, inspirational experience on board Fred. Olsen’s Brabant.

In keeping with the experience offered on Fred. Olsen’s ocean fleet, our river cruises are characterised by the comfortable ambience, intimacy and ample space of Brabant; the personal, friendly service provided by our staff; and our ability to bring you closer to stunning destinations and spectacular scenic delights.

Every aspect of our river cruise holidays has been carefully considered and crafted to ensure the time you spend on an authentic exploration of majestic rivers is simply unforgettable. From the moment you step on board Brabant – chosen for its smaller size and classic, elegant design – to the moment you disembark after your adventure, you’ll experience the very essence of what cruising with Fred. Olsen is all about.

Sailing with around 150 fellow guests, you’ll never feel overcrowded or overwhelmed while soaking up the sunshine and breathtaking scenery from the Sun Deck; while enjoying a drink in the Panorama Bar and Lounge; or while devouring a delicious dinner in the Panorama Restaurant, where our attentive staff serve you with a smile. Relax comfortably and enjoy your journey along magnificent rivers such as the Danube, Main, Rhine and Moselle visiting captivating destinations and awe-inspiring sights including Vienna, Budapest, Cologne, the Iron Gates gorges and the incredible Danube Delta.

Brabant’s compact dimensions allow mooring as close to the heart of cities, towns and villages as operationally possible, so local attractions are within easy reach. And with less people to disembark, it’s easier to head ashore and make the most of every stop on your itinerary.

So, if you wish to discover the very best that some of Europe’s finest rivers, countries and cities has to offer while enjoying a welcoming, ‘home from home’ atmosphere, service from friendly, smiling staff and the company of like-minded fellow guests, you’re sure to find Fred. Olsen’s river cruises to your taste.
