Shore Tours

Approximately six to eight weeks before departure we will send you a copy of our prebookable Shore Tour guide, which will describe the excursions available to you in each port of call. If you’ve booked your cruise inside eight weeks before departure, all available pre-bookable tours will be available to view on the My Cruises section on our website.

After filling out your Guest Information Form, organising all of your extras and booking your Shore Tours we’re sure you’ll be eager to get your hands on your cruise tickets, ready for departure day. Tickets will be sent by email two to three weeks before departure via your Travel Agent, or straight to your inbox if you booked direct with us. Personalised luggage labels will also be dispatched 14 days before departure and delivered directly to your home address. Please allow for up to five working days for delivery.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines are pleased to recommend specialist cruise insurance providers Holiday Extras for insurance cover of their cruise holiday.

Holiday Extras Insurance is underwritten by Allianz Global Assistance who offer a range of dedicated cruise insurance policies that will ensure our guests are fully protected.

Protect your peace of mind by insuring yourself against missed cruise departures, room confinement, missed ports and itinerary changes. If you're looking forward to your cruise, you need to protect yourself with a quality insurance policy so that you can travel worry-free.

The right cover for the right holiday is what Holiday Extras is all about. All of their policies are designed specifically to cover your holiday, including customised cruise insurance. You can choose what level of cover matches your needs and budget, and you can choose whether to cover a single trip or a whole year of travel.

Holiday Extras' Latitude insurance. This unique insurance policy offers insurance to more travellers than ever before. So, if other travel insurance won't cover you, maybe Latitude can. Latitude insurance was specifically designed to cover travellers with pre-existing medical conditions, and can even be combined with tailored cruise insurance.
