Cobh (for Cork), Ireland Thu 25 Aug 2022

The charming seaside town of Cobh, situated in Cork harbour, has served as a route in and out of Ireland for centuries. Formerly known as Queenstown before locals reverted back to the old Irish name in 1922, Cobh was the embarkation point for 2.5 million people who emigrated to America from the 'Emerald Isle' between 1848 and 1950, and was famously the Titanic's final port of call on her ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912. Today, the town sat in world's second largest natural harbour, is known more for its brightly coloured houses and imposing, Gothic revival-style St. Colman's Cathedral, which overlooks the harbour from a dramatically steep hill. At the centre, a number of attractions point to Cobh's fascinating past. The Cobh Heritage Centre examines the gruelling potato famine period, the town’s museum explores Cobh's maritime heritage and the impact of RMS Lusitania's sinking nearby, and the Titanic Experience, where a virtual version of ship's infamous voyage can be experienced.

Galway, Ireland

Galway, Ireland Fri 26 Aug 2022

Galway, Ireland

Rich in medieval heritage, yet oozing with contemporary style, Galway – Ireland’s fifth largest city – is one of the Emerald Isle’s most engaging destinations. The city’s vibrant centre is hub of culture, visitors and locals – many of which continue to speak age-old Irish dialects – alike flock here to be part of various festivals and events that take place throughout the year; visit the interesting museums and galleries, such as Galway City Museum; and sample the famous ‘craic’ at traditional Irish pubs. Intertwined with the delights of modern Galway are remnants of medieval walls and centuries-old structures such as the Spanish Arch and St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church – the oldest medieval church still in use in Ireland – offering an insight into the city’s fascinating past. Situated on the breathtaking Wild Atlantic Way, Galway is also a gateway to Western Ireland’s spectacular coastal scenes. Within easy reach of the city is the picturesque seaside suburb of Salthill, well-worth visiting to stroll the long promenade and admire views of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands, and sample locally-caught seafood, such as the area’s famous oysters, at your pick of the fantastic restaurants. Further afield, it’s possible to uncover the treasures of County Galway on day trips; the beautiful Connemara National Park and charming villages such as Spiddal and Roundstone are among the highlights.

Tory Island, N.Ireland Sat 27 Aug 2022

Tory Island, Ireland

A scenic cruise by Tory Island is a scenic cruise past Ireland’s most northerly inhabited land, a picturesque gem situated nine miles off Wild Atlantic Way on the northwest coast of County Donegal. As you sail by, you’ll not only be enamoured by the beauty of Tory Island, with its rugged sheer cliffs and vast grasslands, but also get a feel for just how remote the island is, and how detached the inhabitants are from mainland Ireland as they go about their day-to-day lives.

Frequently Asked Questions about Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Do Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines have a Flexible Cancellation Policy?

Yes, Fred. Olsen does have a Flexible Cancellation Policy and is known as The Plain Sailing Guarantee.

The Plain Sailing Guarantee is for any cruise in 2021, 2022 and 2023 and offers the below:

No-Risk Deposits: If guests change their mind to sail prior to departure, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines will either move the deposit to an alternative sailing with no admin fees or refund it in full.

Transfer on your terms: The Plain Sailing Guarantee ensures any guests who test positive for COVID-19 and therefore cannot travel can move their cruise to another with no administration fees. Fred. Olsen will hold the money for the cancellation for up to 12 months to give their guests plenty of time to choose an alternative sailing of at least the same value. All guests need to do is call prior to departure to notify their inability to travel.

Transfer your deposit: Guests can transfer their deposit on another cruise departing within 12 month of your original travel dates, guests must do this prior to their final payment or interim payment is due (only applicable to longer cruises).


Do I need a COVID-19 vaccine to travel aboard a Fred. Olsen ship?

Yes, you will need to have had both of your COVID-19 vaccinations with the last date of your second dose administered at least ten days prior to sailing

For cruises departing in 2021 the following will apply:

  • Guests will need to book a PCR test (these cost approximately £99 per kit but we have a deal with BUPA which means Fred Olsen guests can get a discount with them to £77) they will then be given a reference code for the test which they will need to take with them as they will need that to complete their Passenger Locator Form.
  • All guests are required to do a lateral flow at home, prior to travelling to the port and are then required to take a lateral flow test again at the port.
  • Guests also are required to have a test carried out on board, 72 hours prior to arrival back to the UK at the end of their cruise – similar to the lateral flow test and this costs £10.00 charged to their on board account. Fred Olsen will provide the certified test and this is why guests are not able to bring their own (free) tests from home. 
  • Guests will also have to have a smart phone or mobile device so that they can fill in the government’s Passenger Locator Form on disembarkation (they cannot travel without a smart phone or device that they can access their emails on).


What is included in my cruise fare?

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offer incredible value via inclusive fares. The following will be included in the price of your cruise: comfortable cabins with tv, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities and individually controlled air conditioning, tempting cuisine, self-service tea and coffee at selected venues, in-room sandwiches and snacks, evening entertainment, Captain’s Drinks Party and Gala Buffet, use of leisure facilities including pools and gym, a vast range of on board activities, all UK port taxes, luggage porterage at embarkation and disembarkation and flights (as part of fly-cruises).

Yes, there is a dress code on board. Most evenings, your chosen ship will have a smart casual dress code. For men, trousers, chinos or smart dark jeans with a shirt or polo shirt are required. For ladies, outfits range from tailored trouser suits/casual separates to stylish dresses. Depending on the length of your chosen cruise, there may be one or more formal evenings. On these occasions, men wear either a dinner jacket or dark suit and tie while ladies may wear cocktail-style dresses or full-length ball gowns.


What dining options are available on board?

Upon arrival, you’ll find a Restaurant Seating Card in your cabin which will detail your evening dining time and allocated table number for the duration of your cruise. Dining times consist of two sittings; First Sitting (18:15) and Second Sitting (20:30). For guests on Freedom Fare, you will be offered the choice of your preferred slot at the time of booking, subject to availability. While guests on Saver Fares can select their dining time for a nominal supplement in advance of sailing. Informal open seating is offered to evening diners in Palms Café on Balmoral and Braemar. On selected evenings, The Grill restaurant offers premium speciality dining (for a small supplement) in exclusive indoor or al fresco locations. Here, expect to dine on succulent steaks and seafood as well as world cuisine inspired by the waters you sail in.


Are drinks packages available?

Yes, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offer an All Inclusive Drinks Upgrade package. From only £19 per person, per night (£35 per person, per night on cruises of five nights or less and Speciality Sailings), you can enjoy selected white, red and rosé wine by the glass and selected house beers, house spirits and soft drinks all day, every day throughout your cruise.

What entertainment is available in the evenings?

Each evening you can enjoy a live show after dinner courtesy of resident and guest entertainers. From music to magic, cabaret to comedy, there’s so much to keep you entertained during your time on board - all you need to do is sit back and enjoy it all with your tipple of choice.


How do I pay for gratuities?

Gratuities (applicable to youths aged 12 to 17 and all adults) will be applied to your on board account. The amount (around £5 per person, per night) is not compulsory and can easily be altered by visiting Guest Services on board. You are welcome to tip personally if you prefer.
