Bio

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines currently operates a fleet of five cruise ships based mostly in the UK with itineraries to worldwide destinations. They specialise in Northern Europe cruises, Baltic cruises, Mediterranean cruises, Adriatic cruises, Canary Islands cruises and Caribbean cruises. At Fred Olsen there’s a tradition of smaller ships. Each one in the fleet has its own unique personality, and never loses that friendly atmosphere, where friendships are forged with passengers and crew alike. On board there are any kind of facilities and activities: pools, library, beauty salons, Arts Club and fitness classes. 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.
