I have to praise Fred Olsen for handling the problem with the drones at Gatwick so well.

With NO notice they arranged transport to Manchester where unfortunately the crew ran out of hours so we were put up overnight (and big shout out to the Last Drop Inn in Bolton will def go back at a happier time - fabulous breakfast and staff!) then flew out arriving a day late.

What the previous reviewer didn't mention was that Fred Olsen - without any request - reimbursed a 14th of the cost of our cruise. They didn't have to and IT WASN'T THEIR FAULT but they still did this which I thought was incredibly generous.

Cabin Review

Balcony Suite

Single balcony on the top deck, loads of space and huge balcony - I loved it!
