Eastern Caribbean with Fred. Olsen

If anyone told you that you were going to have an extra week added to your cruise, at no extra cost, you’d be delighted – in normal circumstances! However, if you think about the date we left on this cruise and what was happening globally with Covid-19, you might realise the extra week wasn’t all […]…

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Avery special occasion and Fred Made it the Tops. Our Golden Wedding Anniversary. In our lovely little cabin when we boarded there on the dressing table was a posy of golden yellow Roses. On the actual day mid-afternoon there was a knock on the door and there was room service with a pretty carrier bag. […]…

Black Watch

My very first cruise was with the Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, on Black Watch (which was an old ship and now is not in operation) :(. However, it was the best holiday I have ever had and certainly gave me the ‘cruising bug’! My last cruise, booked for my birthday last March, was cancelled due […]…

Amazon

For those who want to experience the world’s largest tropical rainforest, but without the inclination to trek through the jungle, a cruise down the Amazon could be the answer. The Amazon has a mythical allure with images of deep forests, brightly coloured birds and howler monkeys. But don’t expect your ship to be squeezing its […]…

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Being chased by a large scary, poisonous dragon in Indonesia was one of many memorable moments experienced whilst cruising the east coast of Australia to Kuala Lumpur. I was on a Fly Cruise on Fred Olsen’s Braemar and joined around 800 fellow passengers ready for an adventure. Before setting sail from Sydney we visited the breathtaking […]…

Balmoral

Two weeks from Southampton over Christmas and New Year. Yes, the ship is old and a bit tatty in areas but the cabins and public areas were clean and the staff super friendly in the main. Reception staff flawless. This is a ship for people who just want to take life slowly – and that […]…

Balmoral

Standing in the magnificent ballroom inside the Catherine Palace south of St Petersburg, it was easy to imagine it filled to capacity with elegantly dressed courtiers and guests back in the 18th century. Built as a summer palace for the Tsars, more than 100 kilograms of pure gold were used to gild the 300m long […]…

Boudicca

We boarded Boudicca at the beginning of August in Dover for her Fjords of Greenland cruise. We had booked a superior outside cabin but were upgraded to a junior suite some weeks before departure. This cabin, 5009, was at the front of the ship and was large, warm and very comfortable. The only noise to […]…

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

We have just been on the French River cruise to Rouen and Honfleur. It was a short five nights but because we kept busy it did seem a lot longer. We went over the very hot weekend so were very lucky with the weather and although we do not like hot hot the air conditioning […]…

Fred. Olsen ‘Balmoral’ Mystery Cruise

When I told people I had booked a mystery cruise the most common response was “Great, where are you going?” At first I thought this was an attempt at humour but, the more often the question was posed, the more I realised it was asked in all seriousness! My reply was that I was sailing […]…

Braemar

We joined Braemar at the end of June for her 8 nights French Waterways cruise out of Southampton. Our cabin (3067) had two large portholes and was light, airy, quiet and comfortable. However a tiny safe hidden away and still using a physical key is disappointing, though the new flat screen TV and system are […]…

Balmoral

Fred Olsen Balmoral – Xmas/New Year 2018/19 – Canaries All in all, this was a most enjoyable cruise and a great way to spend both the festive season and celebrate my husband’s birthday on Christmas Eve. This was our first time with “Fred”, although we’ve cruised a lot since getting the bug a decade ago. […]…
