Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines
About This Line
Good to Know
Unlike most cruise lines, Fred. Olsen does not sell timed packages for Internet access via its shipboard computers, and it can be discouraging to watch the charges add up while not much happens on screen.
With Wi-Fi, you pay £5 for 25 minutes or £10 for 50 minutes. However, coverage is not available from bow to stern or in cabins, as it is on many other cruise ships. On Black Watch it is limited to the Library; on Braemar hot spots are in the Library and the Braemar Lounge; and on Balmoral they are located in the Library, Braemar Lounge, and the Card Room. Wi-fi routers will be installed on Boudicca early in 2011.
