British Atmosphere: Have a pint in the pub, try your hand at deck quoits, read an Agatha Christie mystery in the well-appointed library, take traditional British afternoon tea — and don’t forget to pack your dinner jacket and cocktail dresses for formal nights. (All the ship captains are Norwegian, however.)
Intriguing Itineraries: Besides cruising the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Baltic, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Australia, the Arctic, and the Canary Islands, Fred. Olsen also offers around-the-world voyages. Its smaller vessels can reach off-the-beaten-track ports the mega ships cannot.
