Memorable sights and experiences await you on this Nordic exploration, as Bolette takes you to captivating capitals in Norway, Finland, Denmark and Sweden. You’ll get to discover historical, architectural and cultural highlights aplenty; see magnificent Royal palaces in Stockholm and Oslo, Copenhagen’s Amalienborg and Christiansborg palace, Helsinki’s Presidential residence and famous castles such as Rosenborg, Kronborg, Akershus Fortress and Suomenlinna.[ReadMore]

Other famous sites to seek out include the Little Mermaid statue – one of Denmark’s most photographed landmarks – and Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen; Stockholm’s ABBA Museum; and in Oslo, the Munch Museum and fascinating Vigelund Sculpture park. Perhaps you’ll choose to take advantage of many opportunities to explore scenic islands and city canals on boat tours too. You also get to experience fjord cruising along Oslofjord, and past the Olsen family home in Hvitsten, and enjoy a few hours of exploration in Denmark’s second city, Aarhus.

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 


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'.


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.


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.
