Award-winning Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offers a friendly, classic experience across its fleet of four stylish, more intimate ocean cruise ships – ‘Balmoral’, ‘Braemar’, ‘Boudicca’ and ‘Black Watch’ – and its dedicated European river cruise ship, ‘Brabant’. These are all small by today’s standards, with the largest, ‘Balmoral’, carrying only 1,350 guests.
