Braemar cruising the Corinth Canal
Welcome to the Olsen Way

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity.

But this is not for us.

We believe that there is another way to cruise. A way that is based on five generations of seafaring.

Where cabins are called cabins, and ships look like ships.

Where the journey is as important as the destination.

In our world, smaller is better, and we believe in keeping the experience on board uncrowded, warm and civilised - treating passengers as guests, like the family-run business we are.

It would be easy to follow the trends and go with the crowds. But we never will.

Because this is our way, The Olsen Way.

We’re small and proud of it because years of experience have shown us that smaller ships allow us to take you on the finest cruises in the world. There are many reasons for this but we’ve distilled them down to seven:

Visit more interesting places

You can visit more interesting places

Get closer to the destination

You get much closer

Get on and off more easily

You can get on and off more easily

Kinder to the environment

You can be kinder to the environment

Personal Service

You’ll enjoy a more personal service on board

Equally true

And that’s equally true when we take you ashore

Avoid overcrowding

You avoid overcrowding
