Our New Ships
We are delighted to welcome Bolette and Borealis to our fleet of smaller cruise ships, as we look forward to a bright future for Fred. Olsen. Hear and read the thoughts from our Chairman, Fred. Olsen Junior, and Pete Deer, Managing Director of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. 
 
Helping Fareshare
It was Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' pleasure to donate over 30 pallets of food to the charity 'FareShare' recently, to help those most in need in Scotland, where our fleet of ocean ships are currently based, and have been since we paused our cruise operations in March.

ORCA

As part of an offical partnership, Fred. Olsen are proud to be working with marine wildlife charity ORCA, who are dedicated to working to help protect the world's population of dolphins and whales. As well as many other conservation projects they have set up and are operating, ORCA will be sending teams of volunteers on a selection of future Fred. Olsen sailings, to observe wildlife behaviours, collect vital sighting data and much more. To find out more about ORCA and everything they do, and to learn about the wonderful whales and dolphins they help to protect, their YouTube channel is a great place to start.

By clicking the link below, you'll find a list of Britain's favourite walks for you to try. The Ramblers website also provides extensive lists of walking routes to uncover locally, in regions around England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
