Each of the Fred Olsen ships have recently been revamped with the addition of speciality dining restaurants to offer guests a refreshed atmosphere and greater choice of dining venues.

Food & Drink

Fred Olsen know that the time you spend onboard is just as important as your time ashore, which is why they provide a full programme of activities that you can partake in as much or as little as you like. Guests can enjoy curated activities such as quizzes, health and fitness classes, arts and crafts, guest speakers, ballroom dancing and even singing and language lessons. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a relaxing session in the Atlantis Spa and treat themselves to a blissful back massage.


Once the sun sets, it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy a series of live shows ranging from stand up comedy to live music and energetic cabaret. Following the shows, you can take a stroll under the stars on the top deck, or dance the night away to tunes played by the ships resident band. Thanks to the fabulous Dance Hosts, no-one goes long without a partner to dance with.
