Portree, Isle of Skye

Portree, Isle of Skye Thu 21 Jul 2022

Portree, Isle of Skye

Portree is the Isle of Skye's largest and liveliest town. Set within a pretty natural harbour with brightly-coloured houses and surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills, Portree is a truly beautiful place to explore. Its name (from the Gaelic for King's Harbour) commemorates James V, who arrived here in 1540 to pacify the local clans. The town is a popular tourist destination, thanks to its stunning coastline and interesting attractions that include the Aros Centre and the An Tuireann Arts Centre, which celebrate the island's Gaelic heritage. Portree also serves as a gateway to other attractions on the island, such as the intriguing rock formations at Trotternish Ridge, north of the town, the ruins of Tusdale, and the peninsula unflatteringly known as ‘The Lump’, which once provided a setting for public hangings.

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

Lerwick, United Kingdom Fri 22 Jul 2022

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

Lerwick is the friendly capital of the 100 islands and islets of the Shetland. The bustling, cosmopolitan seaport is the islands’ only town, and its wonderful natural harbour is a joy to explore. Until the 1600s, Leir Vik – Norse for a muddy bay – was little more than a few huts. However, conflict between the British and Dutch, whose fishing fleet fished for herrings off the islands, led to the building of a permanent settlement. This included Fort Charlotte, which once overlooked the harbour but has now been enclosed by the town following land reclamation. Despite the wealth created by North Sea oil, modern Lerwick retains many fascinating small shops and historic buildings. Wandering along atmospheric Commercial Street is a delight, and the Böd of Gremista – a “fishing booth” built in 1780, is now a fascinating museum. The ground floor has the salt store and the kitchen, where herrings were hung to dry. Outside the town are the well preserved remains of the Broch of Clickimin, a small Bronze-Age settlement excavated in the last century.

Invergordon, Scotland

Invergordon, Scotland Sat 23 Jul 2022

Invergordon, Scotland

Invergordon, located at the head of Cromarty Firth in the stunning Scottish Highlands, has a homespun charm and serves as a gateway to the legendary waters of Loch Ness, Culloden Battlefield, the town of Inverness, and the Whyte & Mackay whisky distillery. A short walk into the centre reveals the town’s collection of impressive murals painted by local artists, which tell stories of the local area. It’s also the perfect place to explore Scottish history amid the brooding splendour of 15th century Cawdor Castle (forever – but incorrectly – linked with Shakespeare's Macbeth), and the imposing Dunrobin Castle, which dates from the 13th century and houses a fine collection of paintings and family memorabilia belonging to the Earls of Sutherland.

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 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 be fully vaccinated with the last date of your last dose administered at least ten days prior to sailing

For cruises departing in 2022 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.


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.
