Solo Travelling with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

Fred. Olsen is renowned for being a great cruise company for solo travellers

On board there is a warm, sociable atmosphere as you cruise to dream destinations around the globe in pure comfort and classic style, meeting people and creating friendships that will last a lifetime along the way. The relatively small size of Fred. Olsen’s four ocean ships – Balmoral, Braemar, Boudicca and Black Watch – along with new river cruise addition, Brabant –make Fred. Olsen cruises especially attractive for those travelling solo.

Once on board, solo travellers will find exclusive gatherings to enable you to get to know each other, and staff will seat you together for dinner, and arrange companions when going ashore, if required. There are also dance hosts and dance couples on board the ships to provide dancing partners for solo guests.

Seeing the world with new-found friends and like-minded travellers is a truly memorable and enjoyable experience. It’s often difficult to find a holiday for one without huge single supplements and charges, which is why Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offer some fantastic ‘no single supplement deals’ on a selection of stunning cruise holidays worldwide, offering solo travellers the chance to visit breathtaking destinations around the world in the space and comfort of a twin room, as well as having single rooms available on each ship.
