We believe a cruise is different to a holiday.

A cruise is about the joy of the journey, as well as the destinations you visit, and exploring the world from the wonderful vantage point of the ship and the sea.

That’s why our experience on board is different to other cruise lines. We want you to get beyond the standard tourist perspective, so you can discover real insights about the culture and nature of the places we are visiting.

Our brilliant on board team pride themselves on making everything not just fascinating but fun.

There's no comparison to discovering the world on a Fred. Olsen ship. Find out more about the life on board Bolette, Borealis, Balmoral and Braemar. We can’t wait to welcome you aboard.

Explore Our Ships

At the heart of every Fred. Olsen holiday adventure is, of course, your ship. Our smaller ships carry fewer passengers, so our crew can get to know each of our guests, and the atmosphere on board is always warm and civilised.

Each area, venue and cabin on our ships have been hand-crafted by our creative teams to ensure each space is elegantly designed to make you feel relaxed and at home the moment you step on board.

Bolette, cruising Loch Eriboll, Scotland

Bolette

 

Proudly bearing the name of the wife of one of the original founding brothers - Petter Olsen, Bolette harbours an historic connection to the Olsen family. Exuding classic, elegant style in her exterior and interior design, and featuring spacious and comfortable public areas, as well as just 690 cabins, our flagship leads our fleet of smaller ships by example. 

 
Borealis at sea

Borealis

 

Thanks to her ability to cruise at higher speeds than other ships, Borealis – sister ship of our flagship Bolette – is perfectly suited for sailing our longer voyages across the globe. Cruising faster means she can include more stops, scenic discoveries and highlights into each itinerary. 

 
 

Balmoral

 

Beautiful Balmoral is small enough to navigate Europe’s most picturesque waterways so guests can enjoy hours of scenic cruising. Balmoral retains a warm, civilised atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space, including an al-fresco restaurant.

 
 
Braemar at sea

Braemar

 

Braemar is the smallest ship in our fleet which means she can get even closer to many of the destinations we visit, including the Corinth Canal. Her flatter hull means she can sail size-restricted waterways and dock closer to city centres. Large picture windows and open deck spaces offer fantastic scenic views.
