Money back if you don’t like the cruise – the offer appears again

This time the offer is from Fred Olsen in the form of an enjoyment promise. If you have been watching #TheCruise and wondered what all the fuss is about, or if you are missing your favourite small ship because it has been sold. Or, the dress code on other ships is slipping. Then there is an offer to try it out without much financial risk. Try a cruise, if you don’t like it, then report it immediately, within two days, and they will fly you back from the first port and arrange a repayment. A similar offer was heralded by SAGA last year and it still runs with them too. SAGA also run a price promise on deals. Like the cruise, or love the cruise, or get your money back. So what is there not to like? Where is the risk?

Fred. Olsen offer cruises with a style and they have a history that matches their small, slightly older but no less cared for ships. So here is the deal.

Offering a ‘home-from-home’ atmosphere, friendly, smiling staff and like-minded fellow guests with whom you can share a good story or two, you’ll likely find Fred. Olsen to your taste. The clue is often in the dress code. If you want to go to the buffet in the evening in your shorts, then this is the wrong cruise line.  Fred. Olsen are so confident that you’ll like cruising with their style that we offer an Enjoyment Promise as standard. It is similar to the SAGA one.

Simply book more than 12 weeks in advance on cruises of five nights or more and if you find that it’s not for you within a couple of days of sailing, (means two) – just let them know and Fred. Olsen promise to arrange and pay for your flight back to the UK from the next port and repay the cost of your cruise. So your relaxation starts the moment you choose Fred. Olsen.


With their Enjoyment Promise, there’s even more reason to try Fred. – or, if you’re one of our many returning guests, this is a great time to recommend Fred. Olsen cruising to friends. Just press the share on this article and add it to your Facebook time line.

Listen to our radio advert featuring the Chairman, Fred. Olsen Junior, explaining his Enjoyment Promise.
