Take an ‘adult-only’ holiday with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

For its 2016/17 cruise season, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has introduced its first collection of dedicated ‘adult-only’ holidays, offering a choice of 20 voyages to adult travellers, who must be 18 or over. Guests can experience adventure on an ‘Exploring the Fjords of Greenland’ cruise, sail the ‘German Waterways’, or relax in the ‘Azores & Madeira’.

Nathan Philpot, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“We know that, for many of our guests, a holiday is an escape from everyday life and routine: this can be finding a quiet space to read a book out on deck, indulging in a few drinks after dinner, or taking an adventurous shore excursion. Therefore, our selection of ‘adult-only’ voyages has been created to offer those parents and grandparents the chance to enjoy a holiday within a ‘grown-up’ environment, amongst like-minded people.”

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.
