A short cruise is all you need to experience the peace and rugged beauty of remote Scottish regions, with ample time dedicated to discovering their delights from your ship and during exploration ashore.[ReadMoreMob] Scenic cruising aboard Bolette is a certain highlight; as you relax out on your smaller ship’s open decks, you’ll get to witness the intriguing volcanic formations of Dutchman’s Cap, listen for the echo of Atlantic Ocean waves crashing into the basalt columns of Fingal’s Cave, look out for native seabirds perched on the cliffs of St Kilda.

Scenic islands await you too; you’ll get to discover diverse sights and highlights of the Shetlands, Orkneys and rarely-visited Isle of Bute. 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 in the Shetlands. On Bute, natural treasures aplenty and the unique ruins of Rothesay, including Rothesay Castle, are yours to seek-out. What’s more, there’s also a visit to Northern Ireland, with time in Belfast to take in the attractions of the capital city.

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.

Service with a smile

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

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.
