Activities & Entertainment
At Fred. Olsen we know that your on board experience is just as important to you as your time ashore. That’s why we are dedicated to ensuring our wonderful entertainment programme features activities and performances right throughout the day and into the night. We’ll ensure you get the most out of your entire holiday, whether you’re on land or at sea, and help you enjoy every moment.
We provide a wide assortment of activities on all our cruises. You’ll be treated to guest speakers and performers, art and craft lessons and fun quizzes, along with yoga, Pilates and other fitness activities to suit your needs and interests. Where possible, we also offer you the chance to really immerse yourself in the destinations on your itinerary with our exciting on board RIBs, which can take you even closer to unmissable sights and highlights found off the regular tourist trail.
On sea days, it’s our pleasure to inspire you with the chance to learn new hobbies or skills. You could choose from photography talks, ballroom dancing lessons, singing and language classes, theatre workshops, watercolour tutorials or even join in with our Book Club. Activities vary from cruise to cruise and are highlighted each day in your copy of the Daily Times. What you get involved with is completely up to you.
Our range of fascinating lectures from leading experts are always popular on board. Previous subjects have included wine tasting, the sky at night, maritime history and piloting Concorde.
Equally, guests value an insight into the destination they’re heading to: our knowledgeable port lecturers share all the information you’ll need for venturing ashore, so you can be confident of making the most of your time in each port of call.
Night time entertainment is a high point of any Fred. Olsen cruise. When the lights go down, we’ll treat you to a selection of live shows ranging from music and cabaret to quick-fire stand-up comedy. Just relax, sit back and enjoy the fabulous acts with your favourite tipple or cocktail.
Following the show, you can stroll under the stars on deck, or dance the night away to tunes performed by your ship's resident band. And with our fabulous Dance Hosts, no-one goes too long without a dance partner.
