Since we returned to the seas in July, with two new ships entering service, our guests have once again experienced all the excitement, enjoyment and relaxation of cruising with Fred. Olsen on our hand-crafted itineraries. As we sail towards 2022, we're looking forward to welcoming back our two smaller ships, Balmoral and Braemar in the spring.


Braemar will set sail on 7th May, on the first of four new sailings listed below. These cruises will see her head for Norway, our homeland, to venture into size-restricted fjords and by beautiful landscapes and natural wonders that larger ships can't access; visit Scotland and Ireland, where scenic isles, islets and waterways, and iconic towns and cities await exploration; and to the rugged Faroe Islands. There's even the option to enjoy each cruise back-to-back, for a longer, even more rewarding break.

Each sailing promises to be an exciting journey filled with memorable experiences throughout. Plus, to make these new Braemar cruises (listed below) even more appealing, we're offering you a FREE Drinks Package to enjoy on your holiday and will cover your tips when you book now.

Welcome back Balmoral

Balmoral returns on 13th March, beginning her 2022 cruise programme with a two-night cruise that'll provide guests with the perfect short break. Those on board our smaller ship will get to enjoy all the excitement of being out at sea, making the most of some time away from it all with delicious food, fantastic entertainment and attentive service from our friendly crew. It's sure to be the perfect start to Balmoral's Newcastle departures, which will also include cruises to destinations such as Norway, Iceland and captivating cities in Scandinavia.
