We always try to cruise with Fred Olsen as the crew are the best we have come across. They are mostly Filipino (sad time for them this year, with so many of them not being able to contact their families) and can't do enough for you. They are always smiling and helpful in every way. Fred Olsen recently started a 'Drinks Inclusive' package which does seem to have changed the clientele, unfortunately. We did find that many of the other passengers were very intolerant of the many elderly people on board. Those with walking sticks, walkers, wheelchairs and scooters which we have never noticed in the past. Perhaps this is Fred Olsen's way of filling up the ship and if it is it is a great pity. I hasten to add that we are very mobile, fortunately. Now we are wary of the next time we cruise with them but we'll 'give it a go' and just hope that this was a 'one off'.
