I previously worked for Cunard on the QE2 and so wanted to go to another Cruise Line. I chose Fred Olsen because the ships are smaller and so the atmosphere was likely to be friendlier as there is less opportunity to hide away. The passengers always found time to speak to each other and the open seating arrangement in the restaurant for breakfast and Lunch is a great idea, so many different people to meet. The food was great and there was so much choice. The biggest asset to the ship is it's crew. Filipino and Thai people are renowned for their friendliness and this is exactly what they bring to the ship. They couldn't do enough to help and at the end of the cruise they even put on a show bringing their homelands to the ship. I will definitely be cruising with Fred Olsen again.
