Bolette takes you on a journey off the beaten tourist track to explore the beautiful Baltic region and discover cities famed for their historical and cultural highlights. The centrepiece is an overnight stay in St Petersburg; you’ve ample time to see this Russian gem’s architectural masterpieces, such as Peterhof Palace, the Hermitage, Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood, and many more. Witness their splendour by day and then, in the evening, perhaps experience the magic of the Russian ballet, with a chance to meet the soloist after their performance, too.[ReadMore]

Before St Petersburg, there’s also time in Tallinn, to marvel at the medieval castles, cathedrals and churches of the Estonian capital’s fairytale-esque Old Town, visit the former Soviet prison, and even meet one of the local bell ringers. Docking close to the centre of Tallinn makes for an easy exploration of the city. Your smaller ship takes you closer to UNESCO-listed Visby, on Sweden’s Gotland Island, where sites – from merchants houses to magnificent churches – steeped in Hanseatic history await; and to the traditional German seaside town of Warnemunde. 

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.
