we chose this cruise for its interesting itenary and size of ship...and the fact that one didn't need to fly to join her...as we booked late we selected an anchor package which suited our budget well... the staff cabin activities and adventures we had were great ..We particularly loved seeing the ice hotel, and having a great ride in Tromso with the beautiful huskies, cuddling the 6 week old husky pups and having the chance to interact with the dogs who were well looked after fun exuberant and cheeky. at the wilderness centre... although the weather was very wet and stormy much of the time, it didn't detract from the many adventures we had on and off the ship... the fellow passengers were amiable enthusiastic and a joy to spend time with. We particularly enjoyed our daily game of whist when on sea days.. ..thank you to all .who contributed to give us such a great time and adventure. This was our first time on Fred Olsen....and look forward to coming back again one day....

We are just back...

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin I 3016
The cabin was of a good size and had everything we needed. .cabin stewards were helpful hard working and friendly...we moved to 5112 only after the whine at night caused by a malfunctioning ramp which went off at night on the deck below us.......
