After enduring another long, cold and gloomy winter, this escape to the Canaries provides the welcome relief of sunshine, sand and beautiful island scenery. Your time at the trio of Canary Islands you visit can be as restful and relaxing as you wish; at each you’ll find plenty of places to take the weight off and enjoy the warm sun, whether it’s outside a local bar or at one of the many inviting beaches. On La Gomera, you may even opt to indulge yourself at the Olsen family-owned Tecina Hotel. [ReadMore]

If you wish to experience an exploration adventure, there are plenty of sights and highlights awaiting discovery amongst the islands’ scenic interiors. You could scale Mount Teide for unforgettable views of Tenerife’s volcanic landscapes; see the natural wonders of San Antonio Volcanic Park, such as the Teneguia Volcano, up-close on La Palma; and seek out the volcanic sites of La Gomera too. Not far from the Canaries, there’s also a visit to the floral Portuguese island of Madeira; in Funchal, perhaps ride the cable car and watch people ride toboggans down the capital’s hills, or take in lush-green scenery uncovered via the unique levada trails.

  • An unforgettable winter escape to the Canaries

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.
