Thanks to a very helpful employee of ROL

20 Oct 2018

I was called initially to cancel a holiday booked for Nov. 2019 which was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were going to Myanmar which had long been a dream for us. On hearing our disappointment, Shannon Crick, who called us pulled out all the stops to find an alternative which she did. We were unable to have the same dates, but are very pleased to be going. Not so happy about additional costs, but we have accepted this. Well done to Shannon

Professional and friendly the perfect mix

The Ship


Brabant, Fred. Olsen’s first-ever dedicated river cruising boat. Built in 2006, this elegant and comfortable vessel is in keeping with the fleet of our ocean-going cruise ships. Brabant’s bright and spacious public areas and 79 well-equipped rooms and suites, spread across four decks, provide the intimate, home-from-home feel which Fred. Olsen’s guests already know and love. Cruise ship staples such as swimming pools, a number of lounges and on-going activities are not in evidence on board, making way for a comfortable ambience and ample space in which to relax and enjoy the river cruise experience with around 150 fellow guests. Smaller-sized and classically designed, Brabant lends herself perfectly to Fred. Olsen's approach to cruising. Making the most of the boat's size advantage, we can expertly craft simply unforgettable river cruise itineraries which do not only feature some of Europe's most breathtaking river scenery and cities, but also include chances to enjoy journeys along spellbinding, size-restricted sections of rivers and calls into stunning destinations that larger boats can't access. No matter which incredible Fred. Olsen river cruise you choose you’re in for a very special experience aboard Brabant.

Brabant


Launched: January 2006 | Occupancy: 156 passengers
