Fred. Olsen Cruises 2021/2022

Following the global pause in sailings that affected much of 2020 and early 2021, Fred Olsen will restart operations in the summer with a series of 'Welcome Back' cruises. The new 3-7 night itineraries depart from Dover, Rosyth (Edinburgh) and Liverpool, and sail aboard Balmoral and the line's two new ships; Bolette and Borealis. In the winter, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines will remain in Europe, and offer itineraries in the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and Northern Europe.

Looking ahead to 2022, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines will continue to visit many of the world’s most famous regions, with no-fly sailings available from Dover, Southampton, Liverpool and Newcastle. Amongst the highlights for 2022 is a 28-night Black Sea & Mediterranean Discovery cruise, which features stops in the Ukraine, Romania and Russia, and a 17-night voyage aboard Black Watch in April which combines exploration of the sub-Arctic with a journey to the topical Azores.
