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 any cruise to another of their choice, 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 dining options are available on board?
