Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines
About This Line
Attractively presented and above-average in quality, food in Fred. Olsen dining rooms and buffets is plentiful, though generally prepared to the tastes of older British travelers. Vegetarian selections are always available, and other special dietary considerations can be fulfilled with three to four weeks' advance notice. The line's Norwegian ownership is evident in the high quality of seafood and fish dishes offered. A fairly extensive and quite affordable wine list enhances the cuisine.
Unfortunately, there are no alternative-dining restaurants on board. While tea service is available to all, a more formal afternoon tea—served by white-gloved waiters on fine bone china with an assortment of sandwiches and sweets—is provided for an additional charge of £6.95 per person.
