Paracas

The small port town of Paracas on Peru's west coast, has a reputation for wonderful beaches, and is a destination point for the uninhabited Ballestas Islands, home to sea lions, pelicans and Humboldt penguins. Much more than a thriving deep water port, Paracas is perfectly placed for tours to many of Peru's most spectacular natural wonders. Close by is the rugged, wildlife-rich Paracas National Reserve that spans desert, ocean, islands and the Paracas Peninsula. This designated UNESCO World Heritage Site is a sanctuary for seals, penguins, flamingos and dozens of seabird species – and home to the glorious Athens Beach. The Islas Ballestas – affectionately known as the Peruvian Galapagos, are volcanic islands that boast spectacular scenery and are home to countless cormorants and Inca terns, as well as breeding sea lions. The Paracas Candelabra, also called the Candelabra of the Andes, is a well-known prehistoric geoglyph found on the northern face of the peninsula, and is a must to witness and capture on camera.

Though founded in 1547 by Spanish conquistador Francisco Orellana, historic Guayaquil's name immortalises Guayas (the last Indian chief) and Quil (his wife), who committed suicide rather than submit to Madrid! On the Guayas River, where it nears the Gulf of Guayaquil, Ecuador's largest city and port boasts several colonial landmarks (especially the 16th century Santo Domingo church) - but renewal projects like the Malecon collection of restaurants, theatres and parks symbolise the indomitable spirit of a city that has defied pirates, fires and earthquakes.

Your Incredible Grand Voyage Highlights

Experience the Rhythms of Rio De Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is famed for its Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, framed by Sugarloaf Mountain, accessed by cable car, and Mount Corcovado. The iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer looks over the city from a height of 2,310 feet, and is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The city is also renowned for its Carnival, and is one of the most famous events in the world, consisting of huge flamboyant parades, dancing and elaborate costumes.

White Wonderland of Antarctica

Stretching up from the heart of the world's southernmost continent, the Antarctic Peninsula lies a mere 620 miles from Tierra del Fuego and, for many, offers a spectacular first taste of the snow-blanketed landscapes and colossal ice sculptures, which make up Earth's least-explored continent. Unseen by humans until 1820 - a blink of an eye ago in relative terms - this is an adventure sure to make your hairs stand on end, as you experience the thrill of the truly unknown and extraordinary. Witness cathedral-sized icebergs up close, and blue-hued glaciers, slowly slipping from imposing locations like Hope Bay. Blanched mountain peaks cover the peninsula, and you'll find thousands of adorable Adelie penguin pairs thriving undisturbed in this peninsula's unique setting.

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. 

Pre-boarding & Testing Requirements

  • At embarkation, guests will be required to provide proof of full vaccination status. This can be provided in digital and non-digital form. The NHS has a mobile app that shows your vaccination status. Fred. Olsen will accept this as proof of your vaccinations. For those who do not have a SMART phone, this can be printed out from the NHS website OR you can call 119 and request a paper version. Please note some destinations will require a QR code only. This will be highlighted prior to travel in your pre-departure information. A digital QR code is only valid for 28 days. 
  • All guests are 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.
