Get away with Fred. Olsen this autumn

We’re delighted to bring you Fred. Olsen’s fantastic August campaign with its half-price drinks package on almost every cruise for the rest of 2023. We love Fred. Olsen for its elegant, smaller but uncrowded vessels with plenty of sociable spaces. Their more intimate size means they can take you to places bigger ships can’t reach. We also rate the handcrafted itineraries by the cruise line’s expert Journey Planners, and the Signature Experiences, including spotting wildlife on deck, taking in the night sky with an astronomer, and learning to cook local cuisine. What follows are just some of the amazing cruises available with this offer.
