Fred. Olsen's Enjoyment Promise

If you favour a welcoming, ‘home-from-home’ atmosphere, friendly, smiling staff and like-minded fellow guests with whom you can share a good story or two, you’ll likely find travelling with Fred. Olsen a rewarding experience. You don’t have to take our word for it though: we’re so confident that you’ll like cruising with us that we offer our Enjoyment Promise as standard.**

Simply book more than 12 weeks ahead on cruises of five nights or more and if you find that it’s not for you within 48 hours of sailing,  just let us know and we promise to arrange and pay for your flight back to the UK from the next port and repay the cost of your cruise (you must read the full terms & conditions below before booking). So your relaxation starts the moment you choose Fred. Olsen.
