Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Ltd.
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Ltd. Overview
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is owned by a Norwegian company, Bonheur and Ganger Rolf, part of the Fred. Olsen Group. Company headquarters are located in Ipswich, Suffolk, in the United Kingdom. The company was started in 1848 by three brothers who embarked on a business of international shipping. Still, a family company, five generations of Olsens have participated in the venture as well as several other sectors from shipbuilding to electronics.
There are five ships in the current fleet including the Brabant, Fred Olsens's first river cruise. All of the ships offer gaming opportunities, but the voyages are not usually undertaken with a primary focus on gambling. Each vessel has two gaming tables - one for blackjack and another for roulette. Many experienced passengers report that the tables are not open on every voyage. However, gambling is an advertised service and a croupier will most likely open a table upon request if it is not already in action.
Guests will need to be at least 18 years of age to play. Only cash (Pounds Sterling) is accepted at the tables and bets cannot be charged to your room account.
The Oceangoing ships are Black Watch, Braemar, Boudicca, and Balmoral. Onboard, passengers will find restaurants and fine dining, bars and lounges, relaxation and fitness and plenty of entertainment and fun activities which vary from sailing to sailing. Be sure to ask about the Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs), a great way to explore!
