Winter Cruises

When winter arrives, there is no better way to escape the UK’s wet, gloomy days and long, cold nights than on a Fred. Olsen cruise. Throughout the chilly season, our smaller, friendlier ships set sail on a variety of Fred. Olsen Winter Cruises, including unforgettable journeys of city or island discovery departing from local UK ports; short, rewarding breaks; and epic Grand Voyages.[ReadMoreMob]

If you’re looking for some winter sunshine, our island-hopping adventures in archipelagos such as the Canaries are sure to appeal, though you may opt to explore destinations in Northern Africa or the Med to combine soothing seasonal warmth with visits to world-famous cities, legendary landmarks and remarkable ancient sites. Alternatively, you could choose to sail to Northern Norway in search of the awe-inspiring Northern Lights; or, if you don’t want to travel too far from home, head to European cities for rich culture and Christmas markets.

Packed with incredible destinations and experiences, Fred. Olsen’s winter cruise programme offers something for everyone.
