Past Preservers & Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

New dates released for Fred Olsen Cruise Lines in 2025/26

Past Preservers has teamed up with Fred Olsen Cruise Lines to offer our experts a once in a lifetime opportunity! Ever dream of travelling to distant countries with flights & accommodation paid for, food & drink provided, for you & a plus one in exchange for sharing your knowledge with like-minded travellers?

At Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, we pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred Olsen experience. Our itineraries are refreshed every year by our skilled team of Journey Planners. Along with researching every port in detail, our team plan a range of sailings that coincide with seasonal occurrences like catching Norwegian waterfalls at their strongest and natural phenomena such as the Midnight Sun and Northern Lights in full effect, as well as planning cruises that tie together destinations based on culture and nature.

Our Journey Planners carefully curate a programme of events with noteworthy guest speakers throughout every cruise. These enthusiastic multimedia talks and demonstrations give guests a deeper understanding of each destination we visit.

Having the right credibility and relevance to the cruise is very important to us. Your credibility and relevance can come from studies and first-hand experiences, or perhaps you have a personal or family link to the destinations we visit or the key subjects and topics important to the planning of the cruise.

Our speakers should enthusiastically bring their topics to life through their own expertise and knowledge. Speakers should expect not to read from their notes or presentations but actively engage with the audience so that our enthusiast guests get a deeper understanding of the reasons their cruise has been planned the way it has. Speakers should be approachable, friendly and happy to speak to guests around the ship.
