City Break Cruises

Amsterdam canals on a sunny day
Keukenhof Gardens, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Expertly planned to take advantage of our smaller ships’ ability to sail size-restricted rivers and waterways to destinations that bigger ships simply can’t access, Fred. Olsen’s European City Breaks cruises take you closer to the centre of some of the regions' most beautiful, historic and attraction-packed cities, offering iconic sights and unforgettable experiences from the moment you step ashore.

What’s more, with a number of overnight calls on offer, you can really get under the skin of an extensive list of destinations and experience the very best of each. And, on many of our European City Break cruises, there are opportunities to explore multiple cities on one exciting holiday. [ReadMoreDesk]

You could head to the Netherlands and Amsterdam, for a chance to explore the city's iconic canals and districts, visit the famous museums or sample the local cuisine. Some of our calls at the Dutch capital are planned to coincide with unique events too, such as when the beautiful Keukenhof tulip gardens burst into spring bloom. Or, choose to embark on a journey along France’s beautiful River Seine to visit historic Rouen and charming Honfleur; or join a cruise that includes an overnight stay in the Belgian city of Antwerp, famed for its chocolates and diamonds.

If you’re tempted by the thought of enjoying some relaxing and rewarding time away from it all, a Fred. Olsen European City Break cruise may be just the antidote.
