Departure port information


At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, we believe cruising should be a relaxing experience from start to finish, so whether you opt for the fly-cruise package including transfers or choose cruise only and arrange your own flights and transfers, we will do our best to help make your experience as smooth as possible.

Our River Cruises depart from the following European ports: 

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Dusseldorf, Germany
Nuremburg, Germany
Budapest, Hungary
Hirsova, Romania
Basel, Switzerland

Fred. Olsen flights depart from/return to any London airport, with any scheduled airline (dependent on airline operations). If you would like to fly from your local airport, please contact us and we will register your request. Confirmation of flights from non-london airports are subject to availability and fluctuation in fare. 

On all of our river cruises, embarkation opens at 16.00hrs and closes at 17.00hrs. Please do not arrive at the vessel earlier than 16.00hrs, as you will be unable to check-in before this time. If you plan to arrive at the vessel after 17.00hrs on embarkation day, please advise us in advance by contacting our Guest Services Department on 0800 0355 145.

We request that at the end of your river cruise, you vacate your cabin by 09.00hrs
