As you relax on board Bolette, you’ll get to see some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenes; wild landscapes of rocky shores and meadow-covered hills come into view on journeys into the Sound of Mull and the Mull of Kintyre. Look out for the 13th century Duart Castle as you sail Mull’s still waters.

During your time ashore, you’ve chances to uncover the sights and highlights of the Shetlands and Orkneys, Isle of Skye, and the Highlands too. You can explore ancient settlements such as Jarlshof and Clickimin Broch, and the UNESCO-listed Neolithic village of Skara Brae, on tours from Lerwick and Kirkwall, and capture the coastal splendour of Northmavine – a haven for huge seabird colonies – in the Shetlands. Colourful Portree and its craggy coastline is yours to explore on Skye, while from Invergordon, Highland landscapes and landmarks – such as Cawdor Castle – await you, as well as the legendary waters of Loch Ness.

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.
