Expect the same comfortable and traditionally British feel to carry through from Fred. Olsen's ocean ships to its new river offering. Interior decor is classic, understated elegance, but not modern or flashy.
All snacks and meals are included in the price of a Fred. Olsen River Cruises fare -- including buffet breakfast, a casual lunch, five-course a la carte dinner and late-night snacks. There's also a 24-hour tea and coffee station and afternoon tea, plus a Welcome Cocktail, Welcome Dinner and Captain's Gala Dinner.
A dedicated Fred. Olsen River Cruise Lines crew member will be onboard to ensure the line's standards are met.
Evening entertainment is low-key and tends to involve a pianist or musical duo in the lounge every evening.
Fred. Olsen passengers are all British and the majority are over sixty, many of which are existing Fred. Olsen customers. Currency is in British Pounds and the onboard language is English.
There's one ship in Fred. Olsen's river cruise fleet: the 156-passenger Brabant
. The ship entered service in 2006 for Amadeus -- and will continue to sail as Amadeus Princess until March 2018.
