Escape to the Netherlands on a rewarding five-night cruise that has been designed to provide you with a wealth of traditional Dutch experiences. Highlights include opportunities to visit Edam and Gouda, both renowned for their famous cheeses, on tours from Amsterdam and Rotterdam respectively, while from Rotterdam it’s possible to take a short journey to Kinderdijk. UNESCO-listed Kinderdijk is world-famous for its iconic, typically Dutch scenes of flat countryside and historic windmills; the photo opportunities on offer here are not-to-be-missed.[ReadMore]

There are abundant attractions to discover with Amsterdam and Rotterdam too. In the Dutch capital, you could opt for a boat tour of the city’s iconic canals and waterways; marvel at the grand architecture of the Canal Ring; take in the world-renowned museums; and much more. Meanwhile, time in the Netherlands’ eclectic second city could be spent revelling in its unique and diverse architectural delights, from the unusual 1970s Cube Houses to the Markthal, a magnificently modern structure in the heart of the city. Plus, on Bolette, experience daylight cruising along the Nieuwe Maas river and North Sea Canal, and a transit through Amsterdam’s canal lock.

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.
