This short cruise along the beautiful British and Irish coasts is an opportunity for a rewarding discovery of delights that are closer to home. During your six-night journey, a visit to Liverpool is a chance to explore one of England’s most iconic cities. World-renowned landmarks, such as the Royal Liver Building and the Cunard Building, greet you on the banks of the Mersey River, while the city’s impressive cathedral and multitude of museums and galleries also await. Of course, there are many attractions linked to The Beatles – Liverpool’s famous sons – to take in too.[ReadMoreMob]

Across the Irish Sea, experience both sides of the Emerald Isle with time exploring Northern Ireland’s capital and charming Cobh. Delve into Belfast’s connections to legendary Titanic; the Titanic Belfast exhibition tells all the tales of the ocean liner’s construction, impact on the city and its ill-fated voyage. Other highlights include the historic steamship SS Nomadic and the Renaissance-style City Hall. Cobh harbours fascinating links to Titanic too, as showcased by the city’s own Titanic Experience, while the infamous, brightly coloured harbour and the cathedral are must-see sights.  

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.
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.
