While the cruise industry has gone for bigger ships, brimming with more and more people, Fred Olsen has always believed that smaller is better. They treat passengers as guests, they dock at smaller ports in more interesting places and they avoid overcrowding both aboard and ashore. At capacity, their smaller ships will only ever sail with between 900 and 1,400 guests.
Each journey, will show you hidden gems as well as highlights on each of their sailings. It is a passion that has won them the Cruise Critic award for Best Itineraries every year since 2015.
With their six regional departure ports, the world is on your doorstep. You can join one of their sailings from Rosyth (Edinburgh), Newcastle, Liverpool, Dover, Southampton and, new for 2021, they are adding Portsmouth to the list.
