Fred. Olsen Ocean Cruises On the following pages you’ll find a selection of sailings departing from the UK, across all four of Fred. Olsen’s smaller, friendlier ocean-going ships. For Brabant River Cruises, please see pages 26-31.

What’s included with your Ocean Cruise One reason why so many people choose to cruise with Fred. Olsen is that we include so much in the price, giving real peace of mind. The following benefits all come as standard: • Comfortable, stylish rooms and suites with Smart TV, hairdryer, tea & coffee making facilities and individual climate control • Irresistible choice of cuisine every day throughout your cruise – five-course à la carte dinners, breakfast, lunch, late-night snacks and more • Unlimited self-service tea and coffee at selected venues, afternoon tea with sandwiches and cakes, and in-room sandwiches and snacks • Full use of on board leisure facilities including gym, swimming pools and Jacuzzis

4

• A wide variety of engaging on board activities and lectures throughout the day • A full programme of evening entertainment, including dancing, cabaret shows, comedy and live music • Formal welcome and/or farewell Captain’s Drinks Party and Gala Buffet (Gala Buffet not available on Short Breaks) • Hassle-free luggage porterage between your room and the drop-off/pick-up point


Upgrade to All Inclusive Fred. Olsen’s All Inclusive Drinks Upgrade is another great value benefit designed to make your holiday as relaxing and hassle-free as possible. This convenient and popular upgrade means you can indulge in an extra glass or two of your favourite tipple without worrying about the bar bill at the end of your cruise – it’s already covered. From only £19 per person, per night, you can enjoy selected house beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks all day, every day, with 50% off many premium drinks too. Whether it’s a cold beer by the pool on a hot afternoon at sea, a refreshing glass of juice, or a chilled glass of rosé to toast your day of discovery over dinner, it’s all included in one fixed price. Terms and Conditions apply; see back cover for details.

The Fred. Olsen difference

Service with a smile

We’re not interested in gimmicks like zip wires, climbing walls or extravagant casinos. We don’t have boastful megaships. We take immense pride in our fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel. Our more personable ships ensure you feel at home straight away, avoiding the overwhelming, hectic atmosphere of larger vessels. Each ship has its own distinct personality; what they have in common, however, is the comfort and attentive service you’ll appreciate as soon as our dedicated staff welcome you aboard.

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday: in guest feedback our staff are always the most highly rated aspect of the whole experience.

Smaller but spacious While our vessels are on a more accessible scale, you can have just as much private space. With fewer people on board it’s easy to find a quiet spot: there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting back and watching beautiful scenery pass by. There’s room to stretch out by the pool, and you can get ashore faster too. And when you’re ashore, you’re seeing the best of each port with hundreds – not thousands – of others, giving you a much more authentic experience.

Bringing the world closer With closer cruising at the core of our ethos, wherever possible we take our vessels right into the heart of the destinations, berthing close to the main attractions. Taking this theme even further are our on board RIB Powerboats which can take you closer than ever before, while also expanding the exploratory aspect of our cruises. That’s what lies at the heart of cruising with Fred. Olsen – bringing you closer to the best experiences on board and on shore around the world.

Award-winning cruises Our friendly staff and crews always work hard to give you the holiday of a lifetime. Pleasingly, this has been recognised by Fred. Olsen winning a number of high-profile awards over the past few years, including ‘Best Ocean Cruise Line’ for three years running at the Silver Travel Awards and Cruise Critic’s ‘Best for Itineraries’ for four consecutive years. Equally reassuring is that from over 30,000 independent guest reviews on Feefo, Fred. Olsen has a guest experience rating of 4.5 out of 5, along with Feefo’s Gold Trusted Merchant status – awarded for the fifth time. Meanwhile, from over 14,000 guest surveys in 2018, for destinations, dining and overall experience the average rating was 90% and above. The highest score of all was achieved by the crew – 97% of guests rated them as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’. Perhaps that’s why people who try us once so often choose to cruise with us again.

5


The fleet renewed All four of our ships have undergone a detailed refit. Refurbishments include new restaurants, refreshed lounges, upgraded bedrooms and enhanced facilities, making them even better than before. From Black Watch’s 4K, 3D cinema to the new al fresco Poolside restaurant on Balmoral, we continue to invest in our fleet. This major investment is part of our commitment to ensuring Fred. Olsen remains the first choice for discerning travellers in years to come.

Your choice of rooms The stylish, comfortable guest rooms on board are designed to make your time with us as enjoyable as possible. Even the lowest-priced Interior Rooms come complete with climate control, interactive Smart TV, hairdryer, desk, phone, refrigerator (which can be stocked as a mini-bar on request), and tea and coffee making facilities as standard. Guests in Ocean View Rooms can enjoy the view from a porthole or picture window, while those in Balcony Rooms have their own private balcony or terrace balcony space – the perfect place to soak up the sea air and scenery. For a distinctly superior experience, a Suite allows you to indulge a little more, with extra space so you can really unwind in style. Many Suites come with Suite Dreams benefits too, including canapés, a welcome bottle of sparkling wine and complimentary pressing of formal wear.

Fabulous food – all day, every day Dining on board is sure to be one of the highlights of your holiday, combining the renowned friendly and personal Fred. Olsen service with mouthwatering dishes, all planned to perfection. After a day exploring the world, our cuisine is a real treat to look forward to, whether you’re indulging in a sumptuous five-course á la carte dinner or raiding the latenight buffet! For a particularly memorable dining experience, each ship offers stylish speciality dining (for a small supplement) in exclusive indoor or al fresco locations. The premium dinner menus feature succulent steaks and seafood, as well as themed cuisine inspired by your cruising region. Booking ahead is recommended.

6


Days to inspire, evenings to remember Your experience on board our smaller, friendlier ships is sure to be just as memorable and enriching as your time ashore discovering the world. During the daytime, you may find ballroom dancing lessons, photography talks or entertaining quizzes – to name just a few examples – alongside insightful talks from guest speakers and experts. How much or how little you join in is entirely up to you. Be sure to check out the Daily Times on board to find out what’s on from day to day. When night falls, enjoy the sparkle of cabaret, comedy and music as the evenings come alive with orchestras, pianists, entertainers and shows. Simply sit back and savour it all, while you enjoy your favourite tipple, or that special cocktail made just for you.

Staying ship shape Cruising with Fred. Olsen is all about rewarding yourself and relaxing all the way, whether you’re dreaming of your next adventure while sunbathing on deck, immersing yourself in the latest bestseller or watching the world go by from a bubbling Jacuzzi. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your usual healthy lifestyle. There are plenty of ways to help you stay in shape during your time on board, including Fitness Centres, swimming pools and fitness classes. You can even walk a mile in the crisp sea air: aboard Boudicca it’s just five laps of the open deck. If you’d like a little extra pampering, the Atlantis Spa offers a wide range of treatments to refresh and rejuvenate, from manicures to hot stone massages to seaweed wraps. Selected fitness classes and Atlantis Spa treatments are payable in addition to your cruise price.

Fred. Olsen River Cruises

Within this section you’ll find some of the most enriching itineraries from Brabant’s 2019 programme of river cruising along the Rhine, Main and Moselle rivers. Take your pick and you can benefit from Fred. Olsen’s fantastic Summer Sale offers, detailed on pages 2-3. An inspirational journey every time Sit back and relax on deck as you pass by fairytale fortresses, steep vineyards, flourishing forests, dramatic mountains and more. Experience all this, en route to romantic, picturesque towns and historic cities full of highlights – each day on board opens up new destinations and adventures. You may choose to focus on the authentic, iconic highlights of a particular country, such as the eye-catching architectural treasures of Germany. Alternatively, an immersive journey of discovery across Europe awaits, with highlights and memorable experiences in each country you visit. The large panoramic windows of Brabant are ideal for admiring the passing countryside and capturing the stunning landscapes of the Rhine, Main and Moselle valleys in all their glory. Cruising the Middle Moselle Valley in particular is when Brabant’s size difference really comes into its own: Brabant is small enough to navigate the winding river all the way down to the beautiful winemaking town of Bernkastel-Kues.

26


Pricing and flights All prices shown on the following cruise pages are per person, based on two sharing a Standard Room on the quoted cruise. For the full range of prices and room types, please visit our website. All prices are based on fly-cruises, which include return flights and transfers to/from Brabant. Please note that all flights are subject to availability.

Dining Drinks Upgrade To enhance your holiday even further, you can add our great value Dining Drinks Upgrade from just £15 per person, per night. Red and white house wines, a choice of beers and branded soft drinks are included, at your lunchtime and evening meals. So you can enjoy as many drinks as you’d like, during mealtimes, without a rising bar bill. Terms and Conditions apply; see back cover for details.

What’s included with your River Cruise With a Fred. Olsen River Cruise you’ll find that so much is included in the price – it really is great value. Rest assured, all of the following comes as standard: • Comfortable en suite accommodation with flatscreen TV, hairdryer, safe, tea & coffee making facilities and individual climate control • Gourmet dining every day throughout your cruise – with ‘early riser’ breakfast, breakfast buffet, casual lunch and five-course à la carte dinner • Complimentary tea & coffee station 24 hours a day • Complimentary afternoon tea & coffee with sandwiches and cakes • Welcome Cocktail, Welcome Dinner and Captain’s Gala Dinner • Complimentary Wi-Fi • Use of leisure facilities including Fitness Room and wellness tub • Lounge music by pianist or duo every day • All local taxes and port charges (where collectable in advance)

27


The Fred. Olsen difference With just four decks and less than 80 rooms and suites, Brabant retains the intimate, ‘home-from-home’ atmosphere for which Fred. Olsen is known and loved. In line with our four ocean-going ships, this smaller-scaled vessel has the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel. Cruise ship staples such as swimming pools, numerous lounges and on-going activities are not in evidence, making way for a comfortable, relaxed ambience, complemented by roomy public areas where occasional evening entertainment, leisurely drinks and absorbing conversation with new-found friends is the norm. Where possible Brabant will moor close to the heart of a city, town or village, with the local attractions nearby. As is usual for river ships, you may have to walk through or over other vessels to get ashore.

Comfortable accommodation

Food, glorious food

The bedrooms on board Brabant combine cherry wood interiors and contemporary colours with generous space to make you feel at home straight away. Juliette balconies with panoramic windows are a feature in many of the rooms – what better way to admire the gorgeous scenery as it unfolds? In-room facilities include a flat-screen TV, tea & coffee making facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi, individual climate control, a safe and a well-equipped en suite bathroom.

Much like Fred. Olsen’s ocean-going ships, the quality and variety of the cuisine on board Brabant is sure to be a highlight of your holiday. ‘Early riser’ coffee, tea and pastries are served, before a hearty breakfast buffet. Savour three indulgent courses at lunch – or perhaps a lighter snack alternative – and then be sure to satisfy that sweet tooth with Afternoon Tea treats. The crowning moment is sure to be the mouthwatering five-course à la carte dinner† served every evening in the Panorama Restaurant.

There are two Suites available, complete with a sofa, minibar (payable), cabinet and more room to stretch out. The Suites come with a bathtub and complimentary bathrobe and slippers too, allowing you to really unwind in style. Please note that Suites are excluded from Fred. Olsen's Summer Sale.

Should you have any special dietary requests simply let us know at the time of booking, we’ll do our utmost to ensure your needs are met whenever we can. †

All meals are open seating. Evening dinner is one sitting, normally at 7:30pm.

Making the most of your time on board Between all the exciting destinations on your itinerary, there is plenty to keep you occupied on board Brabant. Large, spacious windows throughout the ship afford plentiful views of the stunning scenery – you’ll never be far from a sight to capture your attention. Head down to Haydn Deck and you’ll find the Fitness Room, the Hair Salon and the Vital Club, which offers rejuvenating massage treatments and soothing bath experiences. The Amadeus Club is a great spot for peaceful relaxation, with books, newspapers, games, puzzles and two desktop computers. Self-service tea and coffee is available here 24 hours a day too. Out on the Sun Deck, you can relax and top up the tan while you watch the world go by; or opt for a game of shuffleboard or giant chess. In the evenings, all eyes turn to the Panorama Lounge for gentle live entertainment to round off each day. Savour the sounds of singers, pianists and other musicians, complemented occasionally by specially chosen local acts.
