Many of today's ships are so vast that passengers feel removed from the very essence of a cruise. Not so with Fred Olsen's five distinctive vessels. Rather than impersonal floating leviathans, Braemar, Black Watch, Boudicca and now Balmoral, are smaller ships where the emphasis is on you - a welcome guest and not just a cabin number.
By operating smaller vessels we can moor in the very heart of ports where it is often a short walk down the gangway to shore rather than a lengthy tender ride to port. What's more you will be able to come and go as you please, maybe to pop back for lunch or drop off your shopping bags before you head back ashore to explore further.
