The Olsen Way Promise

Everything we do is carefully considered to ensure our guests have the most wonderful cruise experience possible. We are so confident you will enjoy the way we cruise, that we make you a promise. If after a couple of days on board you find that it is not right for you, we will fly you home at our expense from the next available port and your cruise fare will be refunded in full.
