Olsen Cruise Lines have just the sailings to make your wildest dreams come true. You’ll create cruise memories like no other, have endless amounts of fun and experience heritage like never before. It’s the one and only Captains in Cadiz sailing.

For the second time in Fred. Olsen’s history, their entire fleet – Balmoral, Braemar, Bouddica and Black Watch – will come together on the 10th September 2018 for a cruise extravaganza. That’s right, all four of the ‘B’s’ will dock in one port for one day only to celebrate the 170th anniversary of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ beginnings in the shipping industry.

Making history

The previous gathering was in 2015, with ‘the 4B’s in Bergen’ – and it’s safe to say the event was nothing short of successful. Cruisers enjoyed live music, Norwegian bands, deck parties and so much more. There was even a ‘Tug-of-War’ contest between the ships! Where else would you find this kind of fun? And now, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines are coming back even bigger and better with The Captains in Cadiz sailing – the possibilities are endless.

It’s a truly special event and trust us, it’s a party not to be missed. With specially crafted menus, guest performances and themed entertainment, this rare cruising experience stay with you forever.

You’ll get the chance to hop onboard all four of Fred. Olsen’s fleet, experience unique shore excursions and jaw-dropping performances, as the ships production teams come together to create one-of-a-kind memories for everyone involved.

Guest appearances

Being a family-run company, you may be in for real surprise as the Olsen family have even been known to join in with all the fun, too. This means you’ll learn all about their traditional roots, and the history of how this close-knit cruise line came to be. Even the Captains and crew get involved in the lively festivities!

The city of Cadiz in Spain was not only picked for its roomy port – enabling the fleet to easily come together for the celebrations – but also for its beauty and charm. More details of specific events will be available closer to the sailing time.
