Immerse yourself in the beautiful scenes and natural wonders of wintertime Norway – at a time of year with fewer tourists around – and experience magical Christmas and New Year celebrations on board your smaller ship and during time ashore, for a festive adventure you will remember forever.[ReadMoreMob]

Visit the stylish city of Stavanger, perfect for picking-up last minute gifts for your friends and loved ones accompanying you on your journey, before enjoying a memorable Christmas at sea. As Bolette sails on towards Arctic Norway, you’ll enjoy a day of traditional food, fun and festivity, all while friendly, attentive staff take care of everything for you. Boxing Day will be very special, calling at Alta – one of the best places to see the extraordinary Northern Lights – for an overnight stay. With luck on your side, you may get to witness Mother Nature’s multi-coloured light display dancing across the night sky. You could tour to the Sorrisniva Ice Hotel too, not just to marvel at its hand-crafted structures and sculptures, but also get ‘hands on’ and create your own Arctic art.[ReadMoreDesk]

To see the year out in style, there’s an unmissable opportunity to uncover the delights of one of Northern Norway’s most unique destinations. In the beautiful Vesterålen archipelago, miles of rugged coastline, unspoilt countryside and the ‘Blue Town’ of Sortland – almost entirely painted in various blue hues thanks to artist Bjorn Elvenes – await your discovery and exploration. There’s also a visit to picturesque Narvik, overlooked by the magnificent, snow-capped peak of Narvikfjellet Mountain and surrounded by Arctic landscapes best seen from the town’s cable car, before your New Year’s Eve celebrations begin in Bergen. Perhaps join local revellers in the city centre in the evening and feel the excitement as the arrival of 2022 nears; then head back on board to watch a spectacular fireworks display as the clock strikes midnight – an incredible way to start the New Year.

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.
