Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

Based in Ipswich, Suffolk (UK) with its Headquarters in Oslo, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines originated in Norway in 1848 with 3 brothers, Fredrik, Peter and Andreas Olsen.

Still family owned today, they stand out in the cruise market with their four smaller ships, known as the friendliest fleet afloat.

The Olsen Way of Cruising

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising. There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity.

But this is not for Fred. Olsen. They believe there is another way to cruise. A way that is based on five generations of seafaring. Where cabins are called cabins, and ships look like ships. Where the journey is as important as the destination.

According to Fred. Olsen, smaller is better and they believe in keeping the experience on board uncrowded, warm and civilised – treating passengers as guests, like the family-run business they are.

It would be easy to follow the trends and go with the crowds, but Fred. Olsen claim they never will; always choosing to do things a different way, The Olsen Way.
