Cruising Fred. Olsen style 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, smaller-scaled vessels that allow for a more personal service, where you get to know people by name. There’s always plenty to do, but you can find a quiet spot to enjoy when you want. It’s this special atmosphere on board that makes our cruises especially attractive to solo cruisers. Sociable, but never forced, you’ll feel right at home from the first day.
Your home-from-home Our ships are large enough to be spacious, comfortable and uncrowded, but still small enough to be welcoming. The kind of place where you can feel relaxed and able to put your feet up. The size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the mammoth cruise ships can’t, close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and breathtaking landscapes.
New-found friends Exclusive gatherings for solo cruisers are held on board on every cruise. These meetings are entirely optional, but are the chance to get together and mix with like-minded guests. There are meeting points if you’d like to go ashore with fellow solo cruisers, dance hosts for those who would like a partner on the dance floor and on board activities – such as Bridge or getting creative in arts and crafts. Solo cruisers can also choose to sit together at dinner, so everyone can get to know each other and share their cruising experiences. Our guests never need be alone on board, as we have the reputation of having one of the friendliest fleets afloat. Cruising is so much more enjoyable when you travel with new-found friends.
