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. What's more, with the help and guidance of ORCA conservationists who'll join on board for your adventure, you'll get to look out for marine life living in its natural habitat, learn about them and play a part in assisting with their conservation. 

Scenic islands await you too; you’ll get to discover diverse sights and highlights of Shetland, Orkney 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 Shetland. 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.

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.

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.
