Experience a rewarding journey of remote British isle discovery. Off the coast of Scotland, visit the Isle of Skye, where natural wonders such as Kilt Rock the ‘Old Man of Storr’, and ancient castles including Dunvegan and Eilean Donan, showcase its beauty and heritage. Feel the history of the Orkneys’ UNESCO-listed village of Skara Brae, home to Neolithic structures that pre-date Egypt’s pyramids, and fascinating Norse villages in the Shetlands. A visit to Lerwick provides an opportunity to seek-out the Shetlands’ native wildlife too, including ponies and colonies of puffins, fulmars and other sea birds.

Smaller ship Bolette also takes you to see some of the finest Scottish scenery, away from the well-sailed routes; behold the sight of Fingal’s Cave and Dutchman’s Cap, spot historic sites such as Duart Castle amongst the countryside scenes of the Sound of Mull, and see the beautiful Small Isles. What’s more, a visit to Guernsey – a beautiful British island situated off the coast of France – affords an opportunity to uncover the historic monuments of St Peter Port, including an ancient fortress and a Napoleonic watchtower, while you’ll get to capture the beauty of the Isles of Scilly, their palm-lined beaches, charming towns and rugged landscapes.

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.
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
