FROM A PORT NEAR YOU… At Fred. Olsen we want your holiday to be relaxing every step of the way and that starts with the convenience of departures closer to home. Within this brochure you’ll find a programme of regional departures from nine ports right around the UK. So you won’t have to travel far to enjoy Fred. Olsen’s special style of cruising, with a more leisurely start and end to your holiday.

...TO DESTINATIONS WORLDWIDE Along with effortless relaxation, a Fred. Olsen cruise is all about inspiration and excitement. Each year we create new, intriguing itineraries, mixed with popular favourites. Highlights of our new 2015 cruise programme include an adventurous 27-night cruise around Norway, Spitsbergen, Iceland and Greenland; a two-week discovery of rugged, rural Canada; a 35-night, indulgent exploration along east coast USA; the Black Sea with Istanbul; and the very first Caribbean cruise departing from Scotland. There are also two-week cruises to the Baltic; fantastic holidays to the Canaries; a wonderful selection of European river cruises, where smaller-sized Braemar can comfortably navigate narrower waterways; and week-long sailings of the stunning Norwegian Fjords, with unforgettable scenic cruising. There’s even a first for Fred. Olsen in Bergen when all four ships in the fleet are in the same port of call on the same day. We have timed a selection of our sailings to coincide with world events too, from Viking Festivals, the Highland Games and Motorsports, to the Arctic Summer Solstice and Madeira Flower Festival. Plus, there’s a particularly unusual opportunity to visit two rare gardens – one at Alnwick Castle and the other in Tenerife – on an intriguing ‘Mystery, Poison & Murder’ cruise, where you’ll uncover gruesome facts and deadly tales about the gardens’ intoxicating inhabitants.

THE MORE YOU BOOK, THE MORE YOU SAVE* If you book two cruises from this brochure at the same time you’ll save an enticing 20%, or book three cruises at the same time and save 30%* off all three! These discounts are only available if you book before 7th May 2014, and excludes cruises less than six nights and cruises with a duration greater than 36 nights. Please read the full terms and conditions below before booking.

NOW’S THE TIME TO TRY FRED. WITH OUR ENJOYMENT PROMISE FOR NEW GUESTS ONLY* We’re so confident that a holiday with us will be a great experience that, if you haven’t cruised with Fred. Olsen before, we’ll offer you our Enjoyment Promise. Simply book at least 14 weeks in advance on cruises of seven nights or more (and less than 36 nights). If you find that it’s not for you within a day or two of stepping on board, just let us know and we promise to arrange and pay for your flight back to the UK and repay the cost of your cruise (you must read the terms and conditions below before booking). With our Enjoyment Promise, there’s even more reason to try Fred. – or, if you’re one of our many returning guests, this is a great time to recommend Fred. Olsen cruising to friends.

*The 20/30% discount offer is only valid for bookings confirmed between 18/03/14 and 07/05/14 inclusive and only on cruises featured within this brochure, excluding cruises of less than 6 nights and cruises with a duration greater than 36 nights.

It excludes cruises of six nights or less and cruises with a duration greater than 35 nights. Only applies to departures more than 14 weeks ahead. You will need to inform Guest Relations within 48 hours of embarkation that you wish to leave the ship based on the Enjoyment Promise. FOCL will arrange and pay for a scheduled flight and transport back to the UK, as soon as practical and reasonable, subject to the vessel’s itinerary, with baggage allowance of 20kg. This promise is for first time guests in the unlikely event that they are not enjoying the cruise and wish to return to the UK.

Your return flight may be to any UK airport. FOCL is not responsible for any further onward costs to your home or originating port. Those unwilling or unable to fly will not receive any refund and FOCL is not liable to find alternative transport. The Enjoyment Promise only applies to guests who are contracted with FOCL and excludes bookings with 3rd party operators. FOCL will refund the cruise cost only (and flight costs if booked via FOCL only), but will not refund other costs including but not limited to transfers, insurance, car parking, on board expenditure and any other costs related to your holiday. Enjoyment Promise available on Freedom Fares only. E&OE.

GREAT VALUE, WHEREVER YOU SAIL WITH US While it’s always been important to know your holiday is good value, it’s perhaps more true now than ever. Fortunately, with Fred. Olsen your cruise price includes almost everything. In fact, all of the following comes as standard:

• • •

• • • • •

Comfortable en-suite accommodation with TV, hairdryer, safe and individually controlled air conditioning All meals throughout your cruise – from fivecourse à la carte dining, to casual buffets and late night snacks Tea and coffee throughout the day and early evening, including morning coffee with biscuits, afternoon tea with sandwiches and cakes, and in-cabin sandwiches and snacks All evening entertainment, including dancing and cabaret shows On board leisure facilities including gym, swimming pools and Jacuzzis A choice of daily on board activities and lectures Captain’s Drinks Party and Gala Buffet (Gala Buffet not available on mini-cruises) Baggage porterage to your cabin

CRUISING FRED. OLSEN STYLE... BRINGING YOU CLOSER Everything about Fred. Olsen is more personal. We’re a family-run company with a long shipping heritage. Rather than worrying about having the biggest ships, packed with gimmicks like climbing walls and zip-wires, we prefer more traditionally built, smallerscaled vessels that allow for a more personal service, where you get closer to the people and places around you.

SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL Our ships are large enough to be spacious, comfortable and uncrowded, but still small enough to be the kind of place where you can feel relaxed and able to put your feet up. This size advantage means we can reach places that some of the mammoth cruise ships can’t access, including the Spanish city of Aviles, historic Bremen and beautiful Seville, where you’ll sail with us along the Guadalquivir River right to the city centre. What’s more, we are also still welcome in the enchanting city of Venice, which is now closed to many of the huge ‘megaships’. We take you closer to your favourite destinations.

AWARD-WINNING HOLIDAYS

UPGRADE TO OUR ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE** FROM JUST £10 PER PERSON, PER NIGHT With Fred. Olsen you can upgrade to our great value All Inclusive Package from only £10 per person, per night (£29 per person, per night on Mini Cruises & Festive Sailings). You’ll enjoy selected beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks all day, with 50% off premium drinks too – along with all meals, leisure facilities (including pools, Jacuzzis and gym), daytime activities and live evening entertainment that are always included as standard. This offer is available on all cruises except Grand Voyages & Grand Voyage sectors. Please visit our website or call for more details.

SHORE TOURS Our cruises have been carefully designed to show you as many interesting places as possible. So that you can gain the most from your experiences ashore, we offer a wide range of half- and full-day Shore Tours.

These optional Shore Tours are available to book from a couple of months before sailing. We also list activities that can be experienced independently. The information is researched in order to minimise the risk of any errors, but it may be subject to change at any time. Shore Tours are subject to availability. A detailed programme confirming optional tours for your cruise will be sent to you prior to departure.

Our Freedom Fares are designed with this is mind.

The table opposite gives a list of all that’s included with Freedom Fares.

CARIBBEAN, CANADA & THE USA

Caribbean, Canada & the USA

Take an epic odyssey along the east coast of the USA: absorb easy-going southern culture, famous hospitality, must-try cuisine and cosmopolitan cities. Enjoy Miami’s South Beach, where the beautiful go to see and be seen; immerse yourself in Savannah – the southern belle of Georgia; soak up the vibrancy of Boston; and visit the iconic sights of the Big Apple – all in one holiday! There are two further chances to visit Canada, each serving up very different sides of this wonderful country. Choose from a 28-night exploration along the majestic St. Lawrence River – with calls into cosmopolitan Montreal, historical St. John’s and beautiful Quebec – admiring enormously varied landscapes along the way. Or, opt for an unusual two week adventure taking in three Canadian provinces – Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Labrador. For a classic cruise experience head to the Caribbean and enjoy the tranquil sandy beaches and carefree culture. What could be better than the feel of hot sand between your toes or watching the red hues of a sunset with an iced rum punch in your hand and a palm tree swaying gently in the breeze? Rich in fascinating, if turbulent, history, as well as natural beauty, the quaint towns and beautiful islands of the Caribbean have a welcome that’s as warm as the weather.

Cruise highlights include optional tours, available to book six weeks prior to departure, subject to availability and service operation.

Mediterranean & eUrope

Mediterranean & Europe Holidays to the Mediterranean and Europe are full to the brim with diverse cultures, rich history and beautiful landscapes. See engaging architecture – such as Gaudi’s creations in Barcelona; historic skylines such as in Athens and Istanbul, where the legacy of ancient empires still stands; and sleepy coastal villages – like those found in the Greek Islands of Santorini, Corfu and Kefalonia. Whether you’re looking to satisfy your thirst for discovery or simply relax in the glorious sunshine, the choice is all yours. With Fred. Olsen, our smaller-sized ships can take you closer to the heart of the destination, to places which many of the gigantic mega-ships cannot reach – such as the romantic city of Venice. For a cruise experience like no other, don’t miss our thrilling ‘Film Stars and Fast Cars’ sailing, which has proved one of our most popular itineraries in 2014. Closer to home, a voyage around the UK is the ideal way to easily discover the diversity of landscapes, culture and architecture that our fascinating and beautiful homeland is filled with. Particular highlights include a ‘Myths and Legends of Britain’ sailing and our ‘Military Tattoo & Highland Games’ cruise – a first for Fred. Olsen. Whichever itinerary you choose, you’re sure to enjoy an incredible fusion of history and culture, all rolled into one superb holiday.

Cruise highlights include optional tours, available to book six weeks prior to departure, subject to availability and service operation.

RIVER CRUISING & CITY BREAKS

River Cruising & City Breaks Fred. Olsen’s smaller-sized Braemar has the size advantage to take you along picturesque waterways; places that the megaships can’t take you. Journey along the beautiful Seine to the charming city of Rouen; enjoy an unusual sailing along the Guadalquivir River to Seville on the closing evening of the Feria de Abril (Seville Fair); marvel at delightful scenery as you cruise the fjords, rivers and canals of Germany; and admire the scenic Loire and Garonne rivers on a wonderful holiday to France. There’s also a rare opportunity to sail right into the city of Bremen. Bigger sized ships usually dock in Bremerhaven, but Braemar can take you straight to the heart of this wonderful city giving you more time to admire the highlights. Cruise highlights include optional tours, available to book six weeks prior to departure, subject to availability and service operation.

Northern Europe Glorious capital cities and quaint seaside towns encircle this European sea like a jewelled necklace. Many of our Northern Europe cruises include overnight stays in romantic St. Petersburg or charming Stockholm, so you can really get to know this stunning region in depth and take in all the sights. We can sail right into the heart of some of the Baltic’s finest destinations, berthing so close that famous landmarks such as Copenhagen’s statue of the Little Mermaid and the historic UNESCO-listed centre of medieval Riga are within walking distance.

Northern Europe

With Scandinavia dramas such as The Bridge, Borgen and The Killing, and the publicity-seeking antics of Vladimir Putin, Northern Europe has never had a higher profile. Culture-rich cities, awe-inspiring architecture and fascinating history mean you’ll be engrossed every step of the way.

Our cruises are timed so that you can experience some of the region’s most exciting events, including the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg, Copenhagen’s Jazz Festival and the Fæder Regatta in Norway’s capital, Oslo. There’s nowhere else quite the fascinating region of Northern Europe and Fred. Olsen’s Norwegian heritage means we’re right at home.

Cruise highlights include optional tours, available to book six weeks prior to departure, subject to availability and service operation.

norWegian fjordS

Norwegian Fjords Our new 2015 Norwegian Fjords cruises feature scenic cruising like no other. Our smaller ships can take you to the heart of some of the fjordland’s most magnificent scenery, past spectacular rock formations such as Preikestolen and Kjerag, along waterways so narrow that the massive mega-ships simply can’t navigate them, and past cascading waterfalls, so close you can almost feel the spray. The journey is as rewarding as the destination. No words can accurately describe the sense of awe and wonder that cruising through the fjords will inspire in you. It’s an incredible experience, and you’ll quickly realise why this is one of our most popular regions, both with our guests and with the many captains and officers within our fleet who call this spectacular country home. Explore winding waterways lined with soaring green sides and the wildlife havens of the north: every turn presents a new landscape to take your breath away. Once docked, perhaps grab a coffee and pastry in a chic café, before touring a local art gallery in the cosmopolitan cities of the south. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll leave the fjordland wanting to return.

Cruise highlights include optional tours, available to book six weeks prior to departure, subject to availability and service operation.

Mini-Cruises & WEEKEND BREAKS

Mini-Cruises & Weekend Breaks You don’t have to wait for your main holiday to travel with Fred. Olsen. You can enjoy all that cruising with us has to offer with a short break. Escape from it all for a few days, or if you’ve not cruised with Fred., ‘test the water’ and find out why more than half our guests in 2013 had holidayed with us before. Whatever the reason, a mini-cruise is an easy, stress-free way to getaway. Visit Denmark’s replica of Graceland on the 80th anniversary of ‘The King’s’ birth; explore the sights and sounds of the vibrant Irish capital, Dublin; call into Zeebrugge for the 200 year anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo; or take the chance to see part of the famous 24 hour race in Le Mans. With no flying involved and the friendly, attentive service on board to welcome you, these mini-cruises are an excellent opportunity to rest and relax whilst discovering some fine European cities.

For selected Mini Cruises, cabin upgrade offers are subject to availability and can be withdrawn or amended at any time. There are a limited number of twin cabins with no single supplement available on selected Mini Cruises. 20% / 30% discount offer not available on Mini-Cruises Cruise highlights include optional tours, available to book six weeks prior to departure, subject to availability and service operation.

Grand Voyages

Grand Voyages There’s something very special about a Fred. Olsen Grand Voyage: the anticipation and sense of adventure is unrivalled. As your ship slips anchor you and your fellow travellers will be at the start of a journey of exploration, discovering the world with new-found friends. Take in some of the most iconic and famous destinations on earth, as well as exceptional places that have escaped the regular tourist trail. Set sail in early 2016 and you’ll be immersed in some of the best places the world has to offer. On Black Watch’s Around the World cruise, your journey of discovery includes Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, a string of French Polynesian Islands, Fiji, Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, India, Egypt and the Caribbean. On Boudicca, explore Africa, with highlights including the Seychelles, Mauritius, Madagascar, Tanzania, Kenya, Angola, Namibia, Egypt, Mozambique and South Africa. The ports read like a magical list of everywhere you’ve always dreamed of visiting. Little wonder, perhaps, that for many of our guests a Fred. Olsen Grand Voyage turns out to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience they choose to repeat. 20% / 30% discount offer not available on Grand Voyages Cruise highlights include optional tours, available to book six weeks prior to departure, subject to availability and service operation.
