Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Fred. Olsen originated in Hvitsen, Norway, in 1848, when three Olsen brothers – Fredrik Christian, Petter and Andreas – bought their first ships and began an international shipping company.

Fast forward 175 years, and now into the fifth generation of the family, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, which is based in Ipswich, Suffolk, operates cruises from the UK on board our fleet of three smaller sized ships, transporting guests to some of the world’s greatest and most authentic destinations for unforgettable experiences.

At Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, we channel our 175 years of experience sailing and discovering the world into making every single day count, with innovative hand-crafted itineraries to ensure our guests have a memorable time.

About the partnership

“We are delighted to be taking part in 2024’s Light the South art trail around Southampton and Cowes.

For more than 20 years, our cruises have set sail from Southampton, so sponsoring a lighthouse is our way of giving back to this magnificent city. We are always thrilled to be able to support charities in and around our regional departure ports, and Southampton Children’s Hospital is a thoroughly deserving cause.

We look forward to seeing our magnificent lighthouse sculpture in situ over the summer!”
