As it says in the Fred. Olsen brochure you normally get your tickets 2/3 weeks before departure. You should have received the details of the shore excursions. Give Fred. Olsen a rin.
Hi, you would normally get Fred Olsen cruise tickets about two weeks before departure. If you look at the Fred Olsen website and check your cruise itinerary you will see details of all the tours available, although you cannot book on line. If you ring the head office of Fred Olsen and speak to the 'Tours' department they will send you a booking form to enable you to book before you travel. You may get this with your tickets, but I've always booked early as some of the St Petersburg trips are usually fully booked. I've done the Baltic trip on Boudicca and can highly recommend the 'Sea Plane trip in Oslo' and the 'Musical Evening at the Hermitage'. Visiting the Hermitage is a must and this tour is taken when the museum is closed to the general public, this means you share the tour with a maximum of 80 people instead of being herded around with thousands of others. If you don't want to use Fred's excursions in St Petersburg, Alla Tours are recommended and you don't need to have your own individual visa. Enjoy the trip! Regards Jan .
