Your Itinerary

Malaga, Spain

Malaga, Spain Fri 17 Mar 2023

Malaga, Spain

The southern Spanish city of Malaga has a lot more to offer than a sunny Mediterranean climate. The city where artist Pablo Picasso was born is now regarded as Andalusia’s cultural capital.

Cartagena, Spain Sat 18 Mar 2023

Today Spain's major commercial port and naval base, Cartagena lies on the coast of Murcia, its great indented bay guarded by rocky promontories, each topped by a fort. Founded in 221 BC by Hasdrubal, leader of the Carthaginians (hence the name) from North Africa, it has a fascinating history - and as Nova Carthage was long the Romans' principal settlement in their Iberian stronghold. Attractive promenades extend along the harbour, while to the northeast is the famous beach and watersports resort area of the lagoon-like Mar Menor.

Crotone is a port city in Calabria, southern Italy. The monumental Castello di Carlo V is a 9th-century fortress that was modified in the 1500s.

On the western coast of Montenegro, tucked away from the Adriatic Sea, is the ancient town of Kotor. Beyond its snaking stone walls, this fortified city offers a charming glimpse back in time.

Split, Croatia

Split, Croatia Fri 24 Mar 2023

Split, Croatia

In the heart of Dalmatia, the largest Croatian city on the Adriatic coast dates back to the days of Diocletian. The old town is built around the harbour and much of the old city remains to this day. A visit to the Roman Palace of Emperor Diocletian is well worth a visit. Other notable site include the cathedral; the Temple of Jupiter; the Golden Gate; the Silver Gate; and Peristyle Square.

Cruises to Croatia

Dubrovnik, Croatia Sat 25 Mar 2023

Cruises to Croatia

There's no mistaking the past wealth and proud spirit of this ‘Jewel of the Adriatic', perched on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast. An independent city-state for 600 years until conquered by Napoleon, Dubrovnik survives, despite recent events, as one of Europe's best preserved medieval cities - a timeless architectural showpiece, whose graceful churches and cloisters, palaces and fountains, mellow Baroque facades and encircling ancient walls, all seem more stage set than reality.

Cruises around Greece

Agios Nikolaos, Crete Fri 31 Mar 2023

Cruises around Greece

Built around a pretty lake against a backdrop of imposing red-rock cliffs and tall trees, Agios Nikolaos is one of Crete’s most picturesque towns. A vibrant ‘resort’ throughout the holiday season, the town attracts thousands of visitors every year thanks to its blend of natural beauty, cultural attractions, interesting historic sites and fantastic beaches. Although Agios Nikolaos appears imposing, with its typically Greek whitewashed buildings towering over Lake Voulisméni and Merabello Bay, it is in fact very easy to explore on foot. Taking a stroll along the town’s tree-lined streets, alleys and boulevards in the Mediterranean sunshine is the best way to take in the attractions. Plenty of bars, shops and restaurants serving fine local cuisine, several charming Byzantine-era churches and interesting archaeological, folklore and national history museums all await discovery. The stunning marina and sandy beach of Ammus are well worth taking the short walk from the town centre to discover too.

Argostoli (Cephalonia)

With its palm-lined cobbled promenade, stunning beaches and vibrant town centre, Argostoli is the perfect place to soak up the glorious Mediterranean sunshine while enjoying unique Greek culture. Surrounded by gorgeous azure waters and boasting a beautiful natural harbour, Kefalonia’s is also the island's largest port town. Despite being a modern, commercial town, Argostoli’s tradition and heritage oozes from its charming architecture, vibrant squares and pretty landscapes. Lithostroto – the main street in the town centre – is the hub of the town and home to a number of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Kampanas Square – found in the middle of Lithostroto – offers superb views of the town and the beautiful Koutavos Lagoon. Just a short distance from the town centre you will discover the impressive Agion Theodoron Lighthouse. Rebuilt in 1953 after an earthquake destroyed the original 19th century building, the lighthouse has a unique design that features 20 columns and a small tower.

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).

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.
