Fred. Olsen Extends Social Media Presence

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched its own official Facebook and Twitter profiles, and you can also view Fred. Olsen video footage on the cruise line’s dedicated channel on YouTube. The famous Facebook, Twitter and YouTube icons are now displayed on the home page of the this website, so you are just a click away.
With its increased online presence, Fred. Olsen – known for its smaller, traditional-style cruise ships and famous for its ‘personal touch’ – is looking forward to closer interaction with its guests, potential guests, travel agents and anyone with an interest in its cruises.

Nigel Lingard, Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
"Although the majority of our guests tend to be of a more mature age, they are actually very keen on new methods of communication, and many have embraced social media. I am sure that they will be pleased to find us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and we look forward to some lively and interesting discussions."

A highlight of Fred. Olsen’s YouTube channel is the recent addition of the new video footage of guests giving their views on the cruise line, completely unscripted and in their own words, allowing visitors to hear the feedback of ‘real’ people. 



Fred. Olsen Cruise Line operates in the UK with four intimately sized ships for a more personal cruising experience.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines we are very proud of our smaller ships – Bolette, Borealis and Balmoral - and the imaginative and unusual itineraries they allow us to offer. Every cruise is hand-crafted from scratch by our team of in-house Journey Planners to make sure you are not only visiting the best destinations, but at the best time to experience them.

For us, it’s not just about where we go but how we take you there. We put as much time into planning scenic cruising as we do in choosing the destinations themselves. On board, our Signature Experiences showcase the history, culture, nature and flavours of the destinations you’ll visit – from Treats of the Region, where you can enjoy local delicacies, to our Sky at Sea star-gazing sessions where you can relax with a hot toddy out on deck while our astronomer talks you through the night sky.

Plus, with each ship carrying 1,300 guests or less, our ships are small enough for us to offer a warm, friendly and personal service where nothing is ever too much trouble, as we visit a host of exciting ports in every corner of the globe.
