Fred. Olsen Cruises from Southampton

Set sail on the adventure of a lifetime


Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is a family-owned favourite in the British cruise market offering guests a traditional cruising experience. For over 170 years, Fred. Olsen have been providing an award-winning service, with their fleet of ships incorporating traditional style and unparalleled elegance while focusing on relaxation, comfort and delicious cuisine. The fleet consists of four classic-styled mid to small size ships: Balmoral, Black Watch, Boudicca and Braemar as well as their river cruise ship, Brabant - all of which allow for docking in smaller, unique ports of call.

Step on board to a welcoming and intimate setting with stylish suites and cabins, tantalising restaurants and spacious public rooms. You’ll find everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable holiday as you glide across the ocean and along beautiful rivers, discovering out-of-this-world experiences and awe-inspiring sights while forging friendships with like minded travellers that will last a lifetime.

Unlock the British Isles, Canary Islands and Norwegian Fjords, set sail on a world cruise or a solo adventure, all with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. With departure ports much closer to home and increased luggage allowance, cruise-only holidays are relaxing and stress-free from start to finish.

Fred. Olsen believes in making the most of your time at shore. So, once you arrive at your dream destination you can choose from a wide range of tours that have been designed to suit all interests and tastes. Will it be a gentle panoramic sightseeing tour or an energetic adventure?
