Which kind of cruiser are you?

Are you all about sunshine and cocktails or do you prefer adventure and intrigue? Are you a nature lover or do you prefer exploring cities and nightlife? Just like our cruises, every person is different which is why we thought it would be fun to see what type of travellers are out there, and which destinations they are most likely to visit! Are you one of the below?

The Culture Vulture

Cafes, temples, mingling with the locals and learning about new places, the Culture Vulture loves to explore everything they can about a destination. From bustling city centres and busy markets, they want to immerse themselves into the local way of life. Regional art galleries, delicious local cuisine and getting to the heart of a destination is the name of the game. If this sounds like you, we would recommend our Heart of Baltic cruise which visits several unique destinations that all have their own distinctive flavour and highlights.

The Romantic

The romantic likes nothing more than to gently sail down beautiful rivers and seas with their partner and enjoy a calm and intimate experience. Whether they are looking to reconnect, or to enjoy a new experience with someone special, The Romantic cruiser is not short of options. Visit the city of Love with our French River Cruise or go further afield and bask in the splendour of the Arctic Circle with one of our breath-taking Northern Lights Cruises.

The Adventurer

Loaded backpacks, a sturdy camera and a good pair of shoes are just a few items that the Adventurer is never without. They are all about checking out some of the more exotic locations out there and aren’t afraid to get stuck in to see it all. Fans of getting out there and experiencing something with a little bit of edge should get themselves on an Amazon River Adventure, or explore South America on one of our cruise ships.

The Relaxer

For some, holidays aren’t about exploring; they are for taking it easy. For the Relaxer, all they want is to leave their stresses behind and take the time to chill out and not worry about a thing. Although a little exploration is still on the cards, the main thing they want is to sit on a white beach or up on deck whilst reading a book and soaking in those rays. If that sounds like your kind of thing, we would recommend one of our sun-kissed Caribbean Cruises.

The City Slicker

For these guys, the concrete jungle is their playground. Restaurants, nightlife, markets and museums are in their sights and they like nothing more than disappearing into the streets and seeing what foreign urban life has to offer. If you’re looking to hop on public transport and explore exciting and unfamiliar streets, check out our European City Break which explores Hamburg, Antwerp and Amsterdam.

The Nature Lover

It’s a big world out there for the Nature-Lover. Indigenous ecosystems, dense rainforests and breath-taking natural splendour are on their bucket list, and with so many fantastic destinations out there, a cruise really is the best way to see it all in comfort. From the Norwegian Fjords and Northern Lights through to an adventure in the Amazon, the Nature-Lover is not short of amazing places to discover!

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has defined and redefined the cruise experience, and judging by the number of passengers that come back time and again, we seem to have styled it to perfection

The company originated in Hvitsten, a small town on Oslofjord in Norway, in 1848 when three Olsen brothers – Fredrik Christian, Petter and Andreas – bought their first ships and began an international shipping company.

Now into the fifth generation of the family, they operate companies skilled in various aspects of the cruise and passenger shipping trade as well as aviation, ships’ crewing, shipbuilding and offshore industries.
Aside from the transportation industries, the Fred. Olsen group also has interests in the luxury hotel sector, estate management, property development, and electronics companies.

Offices for the company are spread throughout the world, although the company headquarters remain firmly in the family’s hands in Oslo and Tenerife. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is based in Ipswich in Suffolk.

Registered Name & Office: Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Ltd, 2nd Floor, 64-65 Vincent Square, London, SW1P 2NU.
