With Bolette taking you to destinations entwined with the history of the Camino de Santiago, you’ll get to discover ancient pilgrimage routes, walk and explore them for yourself,[ReadMoreMob] and get a feel for how they help to mix people and cultures across Europe. From Getxo, tour to nearby San Sebastian for the start of the Camino del Norte route; and in Lisbon, experience the beginning of the Camino Portugués. Then, after Cádiz and the start of Via de la Platra, it’s on to El Ferrol for the Camino Ingles and a chance to visit Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, where the pilgrimage routes ultimately culminate.

You could tour from Getxo to nearby Bilbao and discover this culture-rich cities many highlights too, including the Guggenheim Museum, and learn about the origins of local Rioja wine and its production, while attractions aplenty await in Lisbon, from monuments such as UNESCO-listed Belem Tower to Pasteis de Belem bakery. No visit to the Portuguese capital is complete without trying its famous custard tarts. Taste, and explore the history of, tapas perhaps in Cádiz, or maybe even tour from here to Seville to watch and learn Flamenco. Meanwhile, El Ferrol is also your gateway to Cape Finisterre, an important pilgrimage site from Roman times.

Your Itinerary

  • Tour to Santiago de Compostela from El Ferrol

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.
