This is still our favourite cruise route and we will be back on it with the Britannia in 2018 B818 in June. The Baltic was a main trading route from the day man built ships and it still is to this day. Many of these medieval towns were built as part of the Hanseatic League and have left us...

Fred. Olsen started in this Fjord, at the start of the Baltic cruise. They take immense pride in their boutique fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel. The dress code is a little stricter, the atmosphere calmer. Their long-serving staff are carefully chosen for their friendly, caring personalities, and they...
Fred Olsen pride themselves in the personal touch they can give on their smaller ships, and despite discussing a possible new ship they have said they will stay small. The routes they find for their ships are envious, stopping at some special places other ships cannot go to. For those who love these ships, here are the Facebook Chat...

A Fjords cruise is Epic! This film shows a typical Fjords in just a few minutes. Ideal starter. A fjord is a deep, narrow, elongated freshwater lake reflecting the sun like a mirror. Draining into the sea, the fresh water eventually mixes with sea water. Some of the best films we have collected of individual Fjords in our Doris Visits Fjords...

Is dependent on three things doctors advice, your insurance company's terms and conditions and restrictions, and the cruise line's policy. Some want a letter of 'fit to travel' at any pregnancy length but all have the same cut off point; 24 weeks.
