Fred Olsen Cruise Lines FAQs

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

If guests test positive within 14 days of departure they are to contact Fred. Olsen to discuss their booking and their options.

Fred. Olsen wants you to have complete peace of mind when booking a cruise with us. That's why all new bookings for cruises in 2022 come with their ‘no-risk deposit’ as standard.

This means you can move your deposit to any other cruise within 12 months of your original sailing - with no transfer fees. All you have to do is let us know before your final balance has been paid (or before your interim payment on a longer cruise).


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

Yes, you will need to be fully vaccinated, including your booster dose, with the last date of your last dose administered at least ten days prior to sailing.

  • Guests aged 12 and over are required to be fully vaccinated, including a booster dose. Your booster dose must be administered at least 7 days prior to embarkation. 
  • Children aged 12 and over will be required to have both of their vaccinations, with the last administered date a minimum of 14 days prior to embarkation
  • If more than 9 months have passed since the second dose, a booster vaccine will be required at least 7 days prior to embarkation. 
  • If you have had your second dose less than three months before your cruise departs, you will not need a booster dose. Your last administered date will need to be at least 14 days prior to embarkation. 

For cruises departing in 2022 the following will apply:

  • All guests will be tested on their arrival at the port, prior to check-in, before joining the ship.
  • Whilst it is not a requirement for you to have a test prior to your arrival, Fred. Olsen recommends that you follow the Government’s latest guidance on taking lateral flow tests regularly at home.
  • If you receive a positive lateral flow result in the days leading up to your cruise, please do not travel to the port.
  • If you need to notify Fred. Olsen of a positive result, please contact the Guest Services team on 0800 0355 145.

From 8th July - cruises L2218A, T2215 and S2218 onwards; in order to offer a quicker and more enjoyable check-in experience for guests, Fred. Olsen will no longer carry out pre-departure Covid-19 testing as part of the check-in process.

All guests are now required to take their own Lateral Flow Test at home within 24 hours of the departure date of the cruise and bring the proof of a negative test result to show at check-in. Accepted proof is the test cassette showing a negative test result or an email, letter or text confirmation from the test kit provider confirming a negative test result. 

Lateral Flow Test kits are readily available at most high street chemists and online.You can also order a Lateral Flow Test via our test kit partner Bupa at https://bupatesting.everythinggeneticltd.co.uk/index.php and record your result at https://my.everythinggeneticltd.co.uk/self_reporting

If you arrive at the port without confirmation of a negative result, you will be asked to complete a test at the terminal, which will result in a delay at check-in. Testing at the terminal will be charged at £25 per test and will be added to your on board account.

A small number of guests will be randomly re-tested at check-in. These guests will not be required to pay for their tests and their testing will be prioritised.


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).

What dining options are available on board?
