The Arts Society Tours with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

Cathedral of spilled blood in Russia

Here, at award-winning Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, we feel it is a real privilege to undertake this wonderful new joint venture with The Arts Society Tours. A number of your members and Accredited Lecturers have already experienced the Fred. Olsen difference and the benefits of smaller ship cruising on our four more intimate, classically-designed ocean ships: Balmoral, Boudicca, Black Watch and Braemar – and we look forward to welcoming you on board for many more exciting voyages to come!
