A warm welcome to our Worldwide 2020/21 brochure. This exciting new programme, which I am
extremely proud of, features some of the richest itineraries we’ve ever created. There’s a mix of sailings
from the UK and truly inspirational fly-cruises to destinations across the globe, as well as a new programme
of European river cruises.
Japan, China, Africa, the Indian Ocean islands, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore… these are just a few highlights
from our 2020-21 fly-cruise programme. With a choice of airports located conveniently around the UK, we can
take you straight to all these fascinating destinations and more.
Departing from the UK in 2020 you can voyage to a selection of smaller, less-crowded Caribbean islands,
explore the waterways of North America or uncover the authentic side of Portugal. We can also take you closer
to a range of special events, such as the Funchal Flower Parade, Norway National Day and the Up Helly Aa
Festival in the Shetlands. Meanwhile, January 2021 will see a return to a new year tradition when beautiful Black
Watch embarks on another once-in-a-lifetime world cruise.
Along with Greenland and the islands of the Mediterranean, the beautiful Norwegian Fjords continues to be
one of our most popular areas to cruise. We intentionally divert away from direct routes to show you the more
scenic paths, before sailing into charming towns and cultural cities. What’s more, with our unique blend of
Norwegian heritage that dates back generations, and smaller ships that can sail to hard-to-reach places, we
can show you my homeland like no-one else.
As a result of years of listening to feedback from our valued guests, I believe we’ve perfected the cruising
experience. Our continually enhanced ships now feature more dining options than ever before, as well as new
on board RIB Powerboats that can explore life on the water’s edge and get closer to scenic areas that are
otherwise hard to reach. Our caring staff continue to offer the same exceptional levels of service and attention
to detail that they’ve offered for years, concentrating on quietly getting the little things right, every single time.
Whichever region you choose to explore, they will ensure you feel like a part of the family.
You can expect to find the same levels of service on board our river ship Brabant, too. This elegant vessel
completed a successful inaugural season of European River Cruises along the Danube, Rhine, Main and Moselle
rivers in October 2018. You can find out more about her adventures to come on pages 30-39.
In addition to looking after our guests, it is important that we continue to look after the world we love to
explore. On board and ashore, we are working to reduce our impact on the globe, so we can continue to bring
this beautiful world closer to you.
I would like to thank all our many existing guests for their ongoing support; to those who are yet to try us,
welcome to Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. Whenever and wherever you choose to cruise with us, may I wish you all
the holiday of a lifetime.
Fred. Olsen Jnr.
