Welcome to The Bridge

Hello and welcome aboard! In this week's update from The Bridge, we join Chef Christian to learn how to cook Beef Wellington, our guests’ favourite dish; get into the Halloween spirit; stop by the Morning Light Pub and Lounge; and say ‘cheers!’ to Global Champagne Day. 

Take a look at the highlights below. 

Morning Light Pub on Bolette

Morning Light Pub & Lounge tour

On every ship in our fleet, the Morning Light Pub & Lounge offers that feel of your 'local'. Join us on Bolette for a virtual look around our flagship’s Morning Light, to get a feel for its welcoming ambience, large bar and comfortable seating, it is perfect for relaxation during the day and enjoying live entertainment by night. 

 
 
Beef Wellington

Cooking with Chef Christian

Recentlyguests voted our Beef Wellington as their favourite Fred. Olsen meal. We thought World Food Day was the perfect excuse to join Chef Christian on board Borealis to watch and learn how this popular dish is made, so everyone can have a go at making it to enjoy at home too. 

 
Halloween cocktail

Getting Halloween ready!

We love getting into the spirit of festivity on board our ships, and Halloween is always one of our favourite occasions to celebrate. Our talented crew get to show their pumpkin carving skills, we serve guests Halloween-themed food and drink, and much more – it’s all rather Spooktacular! 

See what we have planned for Halloween!

 
 

Champagne celebrations

As people around the world celebrated and enjoyed Global Champagne Day this week, we joined in the fun by sharing a few facts about the famous sparkling wine and how it is served on board our ships. Did you know that a standard glass of ‘champers’ emits 30 bubbles a second, and that we offer 5 different types of Champagne Cocktails at our bars?
