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,[ReadMoreMpb] 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.

Meanwhile, El Ferrol is also your gateway to Cape Finisterre, an important pilgrimage site from Roman times.

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.

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.
