Celebrate on your cruise holiday
Looking for the perfect gift? Why not treat yourself, and the people you care for, to one of our special celebration packages or extra treats?
Celebrating a wedding anniversary or a special birthday should always be a great occasion – but a Fred. Olsen cruise gives you the chance to make it extra special. Whichever cruise ship you are on, we’ll do everything we can to help you celebrate in style. Our crew will be delighted to make this an unforgettable cruise holiday, because if it’s special for you, it’s special for us.
Welcome Aboard Package
Surprise the ones you love with our popular Welcome Aboard package. This includes a floral bouquet, Champagne*, canapés, a box of handmade chocolates and a fruit basket all placed in the room on arrival. A card will accompany the package and can be personalised with your own message.
*Please note: on fly cruises except those departing from Barbados the floral bouquet is excluded and the Champagne is upgraded to Bollinger.
Celebrating any birthday on a cruise always makes for a memorable occasion, and for birthdays other than the milestone ages, our Birthday Celebration package adds the touches that make it extra special. A champagne breakfast for two will be served in your room, and a celebration cake served with your dinner. Also included will be a birthday card, gift and a souvenir photograph.

If you are celebrating a special birthday on board – 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th, 90th or even 100th birthday – during your cruise holiday, let us know and we will organise a special celebration just for you, with our compliments*.
If your cruise is helping you mark a new chapter in your future following retirement, then our Retirement Package is just the ticket. The package includes Champagne, canapés, a special cake and a congratulatory card.
Let us know if you are celebrating a particular occasion such as a silver, pearl, ruby, golden, emerald or diamond anniversary within three months before or after your cruise holiday and we will organise a special celebration just for you – with our compliments*.
If your wedding anniversary is not one of those listed above, our Anniversary Celebration package offers a great way to make the occasion all the more special. From just £95 per couple, you’ll find flowers or chocolates in your room when you arrive, and Champagne and canapés will be served on your special day. Also included is an anniversary gift, a celebration cake and a souvenir photograph taken by our on board photographer.
Please note: On fly-cruises departing Barbados & Mauritius, the package costs £120 per couple. On all fly-cruises, chocolates will be provided instead of flowers.
Each day complimentary afternoon tea is served, with sandwiches, scones and cakes, along with fresh tea and coffee, always a popular choice.
On some days guests can book a very select experience: Traditional Premium Afternoon Tea. Enjoy beautiful views from the stylish Observatory Lounge, with musical accompaniment from our on board pianist and the careful attention of white-gloved waiters.
Your choice from a selection of premium teas by Taylors of Harrogate is served in porcelain teapots, along with elegant finger sandwiches, pastries and warm scones with jam and clotted cream. Such civilised indulgence – and all for only £8.95 per person*.
