This escape to two attraction-packed cities in the Netherlands and Belgium makes for a rewarding, Bank Holiday break filled with a feast of sights and scents. Visiting Amsterdam will be a particular highlight; enjoy time to experience the seasonal delights of the Keukenhof Gardens, where millions of tulips burst into life with vibrant colour and fragrance in the spring, and sweet scents of the city’s flower markets. Perhaps take a boat tour of the iconic waterways and see the grand architecture of the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring too.[ReadMore]

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.

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.

Service with a smile

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.
