What should I expect from a Fred. Olsen river cruise, compared to their ocean cruises?

In keeping with the experience offered on Fred. Olsen ocean cruises, our River Cruises are characterised by the comfortable ambience, intimacy and ample space of our vessels; the personal, friendly service provided by our staff; and our ability to bring you closer to stunning destinations and spectacular scenic wonders. Naturally, along with all the similarities, there will be some differences.

On a Fred. Olsen River Cruise you’re taking very different routes to see the world. The itineraries are crafted strictly for scenic sailing and you’re never too far from shore-side amenities. This means your holiday has a strong emphasis on destination, rather than what to do on board.

Guests familiar with our ocean-going cruise ships will find there are some facilities which are not available on board Brabant, such as...

  • All Inclusive package*
  • Casino
  • Bureau De Change
  • Duty Free
  • Photographers
  • In-cabin tea & coffee making facilities
  • Self-service laundry
  • On board Medical Centre
  • Extra Celebration Packages

*However, guests make wish to take advantage of our Dining Drinks Upgrade package, where, for £10 per person, per night, you can enjoy as much red and white house wines, European lager, bitter and branded soft drinks at lunch and dinner as you like.
