With chances to enjoy smaller ship scenic cruising, discover fine cities and their wonderful waterways, you’re in for a rewarding escape to the Netherlands and Belgium.[ReadMoreMob] Experience a relaxing sail into Amsterdam via the North Sea Canal, and ample time to explore the Dutch capital; take your pick of the city’s world-renowned attractions, from Rijksmuseum to the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring. A boat tour of Amsterdam’s canals is the perfect way to take in the sights. Perhaps take the opportunity to catch the decennial Floriade Horticulture Expo too, and enjoy an early morning wander around the city’s flower markets.

In Antwerp, Bolette docks just 500 metres from the heart of this Belgian gem; step off your ship’s gangway and you’re immediately in the heart of it all, perfectly placed to go in search of highlights such as Grote Markt, with its 16th century guild houses and Brabo Fountain. Elsewhere, the Diamond District, Cathedral of Our Lady and traditional Belgian chocolate shops are just some of the delights within easy reach too. Alternatively, you could opt for a tour to nearby Ghent and enjoy another boat ride along picturesque canals, flanked by some of the finest gothic architecture in Europe.

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.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.
