Cruise with peace of mind - let Fred. Olsen take care of it all for you.

At Fred. Olsen we strive to ensure that your cruise holiday is a relaxing, stress-free experience, from when you book to when you return home after an unforgettable time on board our smaller, friendlier cruise ships. 

From helping you arrange specialist travel insurance, to booking pre or post cruise stays in hotels close to our departure ports, we can take the hassle out of organising all the little details that can make planning a holiday a chore. You can order currency with us, taking advantage of great rates you won't find on the high street; benefit from our fantastic coach and car transfer services; and even have your luggage collected from your home and delivered to the ship so it's ready and waiting for you on board. 

There are a great selection of on board extras to choose from too, including a range of indulgent treatments in the Atlantis Spa; special occasion packages perfect for celebrating birthdays and anniversaries; and an All Inclusive Drinks upgrade, which offers you the chance to enjoy a selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks from just £15 per person, per night.

Please see below for more information.

All Inclusive Drinks Upgrade

For many guests, the time spent sailing the world’s waterways on board one of Fred. Olsen’s smaller, more intimate cruise ships is the time to indulge and make the most of a well-earned escape away from it all.

With this is mind, Fred. Olsen’s All Inclusive Drinks Upgrade is another service offered to ensure your holiday is relaxing and enjoyable. By upgrading to All Inclusive, you can treat yourself to that extra glass or two of your favourite tipple, without having to worry about the bar bill at the end of your cruise – it’s already covered.

More than half of Fred. Olsen’s guests choose to take advantage of this fantastic upgrade, which has now been updated and improved to include an even greater selection of drinks. From only £15 per person, per night* (£34 per person, per night on one to four night sailings) you can enjoy selected white, red and rosé wine by the glass and selected house beers, house spirits and soft drinks all day, every day throughout your cruise. Whether it’s a refreshing glass of juice or a pint of your favourite beer by the pool on a hot afternoon at sea, or a G&T to round off your day of exploration, it’s all included in the price. 

Please note, we do not offer a non-alcoholic drinks package.
