Food & Drink

Dining at sea is a special occasion every day on board a Fred Olsen cruise. You will have the pleasure of dining on award-winning food created daily by expert chefs whenever and wherever you like. There’s something to suit your every taste and mood, whether you want to indulge in an elegant 5-course a la carte dinner or opt for something more relaxed. There’s also a late night buffet if you’re still feeling peckish.


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.

                Mrs Ashe / July 2022

                First time I’ve used SCC,I’ve had bumf through the post on a regular basis, but due to Covid etc have not booked a cruise. SCC were the cheapest quote I received for the particular cruise I was looking at. Rosie dealt with us over the phone, gave us a good deal, very helpful so we went with it. We now have to save up and pay!
