Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has unveiled its brand new cruise programme for 2025/26, featuring a host of specially-timed sailings.

Guests can embrace the local way of life, seek out native wildlife and witness spectacular natural wonders.

The programme offers sailings from Southampton, Portsmouth, Dover, Liverpool, Newcastle and Rosyth, and has been carefully curated to ensure guests are visiting at the very best time of year.

Chances to experience local events such as the Rio Carnival or Europe’s biggest sea shanty festival are among the highlights.

To celebrate the launch, trade partners who shout the loudest on social media about their favourite new itinerary from the 2025/26 Worldwide programme, will have the chance of winning a cabin on board.

Destinations include the Mediterranean and North Africa, the Baltic, Arctic Norway, Iceland and Greenland, the British Isles and far-flung gems in the Caribbean, South America, Africa and Australia.

Martin Lister, Head of Itinerary Planning and Destination Experiences at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“This has been a phenomenal programme for our team of Journey Planners to curate, as it will see our fleet of smaller-sized ships visit all seven continents of the world.

“Guests who join us on board in 2025 and 2026 can expect to see some breathtaking scenery including eye-catching fjord mountains, dramatic coastlines, icebergs, remote islands and beautiful bays.

“They can visit captivating cities, fairytale castles and charming old towns packed with ornate and striking architecture and experience natural phenomena such as the Northern Lights, the Midnight Sun, stunning sunsets and flowers in bloom at the very best time to see them.

“Some of the highlights include chances to visit the beautiful Norwegian Fjords in the spring, when the waterfalls are at their strongest; to see fields of lavender and sunflowers in bloom in the French Riviera and enjoy a world cruise discovering idyllic islands and cities rich in culture.”

Guests can also look forward to a host of specially-curated activities on board, from chances to join an astronomer for stargazing on deck; to spot marine wildlife with conservation charity ORCA, and more.
