That’s because their ships are small classic vessels and their service quality is second to none! Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, having been in business many years, is extremely proud that they don’t have 3,000 passengers on board and don’t need rock walls and skating rinks to keep you happy. Fred. Olsen’s itineraries are excellent and now this excellence will be offered in the Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from
Our ships are built on a human scale, large enough to be spacious and comfortable, intimate enough to remain friendly and relaxed! As a result of that, our guests have come to expect a genuinely personal service, which is consistently delivered by our long serving officers and crew: with a smile.
Sailing with Fred. Olsen is like sailing with friends. Genuine and lasting friendships are forged on our ships; it's just one of many reasons why so many people find our voyages so engaging and keep on coming back time and again. We take you to the heart of the world's most unforgettable destinations, many of which are inaccessible to larger ships.
With so many businesses being gobbled up by faceless corporations, we are proud to represent the human face of cruising. We hope you'll want to share the good times with us.
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines operates 5 ships, Black Watch, Black Prince, Braemar, Boudicca and the Balmoral. The Balmoral (formerly Crown Odyssey) is being lengthened and rebuilt prior to being placed in service in January 2008. Balmoral will be operating for the Winter/Spring season from Miami starting March 3, 2008.
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has defined and refined the cruise experience, and judging by the number of passengers that come back time and again, we seem to have styled it to perfection. As a family-operated company, we are justly proud of our lineage and heritage as much as our sucess. With our fleet of five glistening-white ships, we believe that small is beautiful. Passengers become friends, they are never just cabin numbers. Unlike other larger ships,we are proud of the intimate world we offer, where modern-day conveniences sail in harmony with traditional values.
