We have traveled with a number of cruise lines over 20 years but, Fred Olsen keep on giving the very best in all areas. The ships, food and most important the staff. Wonderful destinations too. We traveled with two children 11 and 13 years and they were also looked after so well by the two children's skipper staff. We are going to be back again next year.Thank you Fred Olsen for making us feel so valued as passengers. The last lunch onboard was fantastic all you could ever want. We did talk to a number of passenger that made comment about Fred Olsen after travelling with the big cruise lines. All agreed Fred Olsen was by far the best. Particularly the staff and food. The only thing we did not like is having to get off. The cruise we did was 8 nights which was fantastic but, would like to do longer next time. The only was to see Norway as we did this time is with Fred Olsen. A very easy check in at Southampton and boarded the ship directly which was nice. No waiting around. One onboard we tool a look at our cabin 3033 to find a very warm welcome from our cabin stewardess. Bags had arrived too and were placed on the two lower berths. We then went to the Palms cafe for lunch. A very nice choice of food. Not had a choice before of a hot meal so early upon boarding. In the past it has been a light lunch so this was very enjoyable with two hungry children with us. This ship is so easy to find your way around and if you do have a problem very clear deck plans around the ship. Staff too are never far away. Entertainment across the ship was great. Sail away party as we left Southampton added to the overall enjoyment.

The best cruise line we have ever sailed with.

Cabin Review

Twin Outside
Cabin E 3033
The cabin was very well laid out with all you could need. Fantastic cabin stewardess. So looked after. Nothing was too much trouble and so nice to return to in the evening. Turned down with fresh towels and yes chocolate for all.
