Fred. Olsen's Enjoyment Promise

Bolette at sea
Bolette at sea, Fred. Olsen's Enjoyment promise

A holiday is precious and as a family-run cruise line, we aim to ensure that your time with us on board is very special. That is why our Chairman, Fred. Olsen Jnr., would like to offer you his Enjoyment Promise** on whichever sailing choose. 

Simply book more than 12 weeks ahead on cruises of five nights or more and if, once on board, you let us know within a couple of days of your cruise departing that it is not right for you, we will arrange for a flight back to the UK from the next available port of call and refund your cruise fare. 

That is Fred. Olsen's Enjoyment Promise.
