Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines
About This Line
Attractively presented and above-average in quality, a wide variety of menu options are available in the dining rooms and buffets. 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 clearly 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, but proper afternoon tea—a treasured British tradition—has been restored aboard Fred. Olsen ships with the introduction of a very special enhanced tea that restores the uniquely British meal to its former glory. Served in a relaxed atmosphere and accompanied by gentle background music, the new, enhanced afternoon tea does not replace the traditional tea that is still served daily as part of the cruise price, but it offers a slightly more formal experience for an additional charge of £5.95 per person. The new afternoon tea is served by waiters wearing white gloves and uses fine bone china. Guests have a choice of teas, including some herbal, Indian, and China varieties, and a superb selection of delicate sandwiches, freshly baked cakes, scones with cream and jam, and many more afternoon treats.
