It was started in Hvitsten, a small town on Oslofjord in Norway, in 1848. Three Olsen brothers Fredrik Christian, Petter and Andreas bought their first ships and began an international shipping company. There was no looking back. The company is into its fifth generation of the family, and they operate passenger shipping trade as well as aviation, ships' crewing, shipbuilding and offshore industries. Besides this the group also has interests in the luxury hotel sector, estate management, property development, and electronics companies.
They have offices throughout the world, but their headquarters are in the family's hands in Oslo and Tenerife. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is based in Ipswich in Suffolk. They have some of the best liners, crew and packages you can ever imagine.
