Bolette takes you on a memorable journey through the Med, for a chance to experience the region’s remarkable history, cultural diversity and beauty, as showcased by destinations famed for their ancient fortifications and landmarks.[ReadMoreMob] At the heart of your discovery is Malta; a visit to Valletta is a chance to see some of the Mediterranean’s best preserved historic sites, from St John’s Cathedral and the Presidential Palace, in the capital, or even tour to the medieval city of Mdina. The sail in and out of the UNESCO-listed Grand Harbour is sure to be one of the standout memories of your adventure too.

There are ancient treasures aplenty to take in on Spanish shores too. In Cartagena, take time to explore the city and you’ll witness its fascinating history in sites such as the medieval castle, Roman amphitheatre, Bateria de Castillitos, which guards the city from atop a picturesque coastal perch, and the Punic Wall, dating back to 3rd century BC. You also head for Spanish Morocco, where Melilla’s old town – situated on the beautiful Moroccan coastline – begs for you exploration; look out for the impressive 14th century fortress here. You also visit the Italian island of Sardinia; in Cagliari, wander the fortified Castello district perhaps, or tour to find rock formations such as the ‘Devil’s Saddle’, salt pools and inviting beaches. And, as you finally head for home, Bolette makes calls at Gibraltar, with its walls, batteries and bastions; Lisbon, the Portuguese capital rich in maritime heritage; and, in France, Montoir-de-Bretagne – starting point for tours to pretty Saint-Nazaire.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

While Bolette is one of the largest ships, by overall size, in our fleet, she still has capacity for less than 1,400 guests. So on board you’ll find you have more space in which to relax, in public areas such as the all-season pool and the beautiful two-tiered entertainment theatre, and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant lounges, bars and dining venues.
With its warm, welcoming atmosphere and timeless style, and classic open deck spaces providing a place to fully immerse yourself in the magic of ocean cruising, Bolette is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
