Accommodation

On board a Fred Olsen cruise, there are room types to suit every need and budget, from cosy interiors to large suites as well as single rooms. Fred Olsen cruises are a popular choice for single cruisers as you can stay in a single room without paying a supplement for a twin room. If you’re looking to make your cruise extra special, why not treat yourself to the added luxury of a suite. And, when you book selected suites you can enjoy a complimentary Suite Dreams benefits package.

            Further Afield 

            Fred. Olsen's itineraries really come into their own when sailing further afield. Our journeys are carefully planned to ensure that you’ll visit your destination at the best time to go, such as America’s famous fall, or crossing the Arctic Circle at the perfect time to witness the Midnight Sun. They also sail where larger ships simply cannot, so you can experience unique scenic cruising through rivers, fjords and canals, only made possible because of their smaller size.

                Outstanding service, expertise and experience, I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

                Outstanding service, nothing is a problem, Nicola Boyd seems to go above and beyond top service to solve the many problems that Covid cancellations and rescheduling cruises throws up. She has been excellent and has a great deal of expertise and experience and has booked us cruises in the past, but in the current Covid situation she had to cancel our Alaska trip, dealing with airlines, hotels, train and cruise lines. All of this she took in her stride, and then she helped us book a different cruise from Southampton, and sorted out all the various questions we had to our complete satisfaction. We love cruises and won’t be going anywhere else to book, other than Scotland’s Cruise Centre, and I highly recommend them to friends or anyone looking to book a cruise.
