The classic design of these river vessels is a little smaller than many river ships, so you’ll enjoy the usual hallmarks of Fred. Olsen’s approach to cruising. In line with the ocean-going fleet, the smaller-scaled vessels have the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel. With the fifth generation Fred. Olsen as Chairman, the company believes they have crafted the perfect formula to ensure you get the best out of your holiday. Now its experience and knowledge have been applied to this new programme of river cruises.
Each day opens up new destinations and adventures – sometimes more than one within 24 hours. On many itineraries, time has been allowed for scenic cruising so that guests can enjoy views of the countryside from the open deck, in the lounges or from the panoramic windows of their room if a Juliette Balcony Room or Suite is booked.
These vessels will moor as close as operationally possible to the heart of a city, town or village, with the local attractions nearby. As is usual for river ships, you may have to walk through or over other vessels to get ashore.
