Brabant

Fred. Olsen River Cruises are delighted to introduce you to Brabant, their first-ever dedicated river cruising boat. Built in 2006, this elegant and comfortable vessel is in keeping with the fleet of their ocean-going cruise ships. Brabant’s bright and spacious public areas and 79 well-equipped rooms and suites, spread across four decks, provide the intimate, home-from-home feel which Fred. Olsen’s guests already know and love. Cruise ship staples such as swimming pools, a number of lounges and on-going activities are not in evidence on board, making way for a comfortable ambience and ample space in which to relax and enjoy the river cruise experience with around 150 fellow guests.

Smaller-sized and classically designed, Brabant lends herself perfectly to Fred. Olsen's approach to cruising. Making the most of the boat's size advantage, they can expertly craft simply unforgettable river cruise itineraries which do not only feature some of Europe's most breathtaking river scenery and cities, but also include chances to enjoy journeys along spellbinding, size-restricted sections of rivers and calls into stunning destinations that larger boats can't access.

No matter which incredible Fred. Olsen river cruise you choose you’re in for a very special experience aboard Brabant.

dining

Great food has become synonymous with a Fred. Olsen cruise, and like our ocean-going ships – the quality and variety of the cuisine on board Brabant is sure to be a highlight of your holiday.

In the morning you can wake up with 'Early Riser' coffee, tea and pastries, all before tucking into a hearty breakfast buffet. At lunch, you have the option to indulge with three delicious courses, supplemented by a variety of buffet options, in the Panorama Restaurant. Mid-afternoon the Panorama Lounge will serve up a sweet tooth-satisfying Afternoon Tea to help refuel after a morning of exploration. The crowning moment is sure to be the sumptuous five-course à la carte dinner*, served every evening in the Panorama Restaurant. To round the day off, late night snacks are available for those who are – somehow – still peckish. What's more, all this is included in your cruise price.

The carefully crafted lunch and dinner menus feature a few classic favourites and vegetarian options too, as well as regional dishes inspired by the stunning destinations on your itinerary. Should you have any special dietary requests, simply let us know at the time of booking – we’ll do our utmost to ensure your needs are met wherever possible.

entertainment

With so much time in port, river boats tend to have less activities on offer than ocean ships. While Brabant may be a little smaller than many other river boats, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to keep you entertained throughout the time you spend on board.

health fitness

The time you spend on board Brabant should be relaxing and carefree from the moment you embark, which is why the river boat features everything you need to refresh and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul and make the most of your well-earned time away from the stress and strains back home.
