Away from well-trodden tourist routes, a trio of lesser-known, undiscovered gems offer a rarely experienced taste of Spanish history and culture. Wander around Castellón de la Plana, to feel the city’s combination of old and new; ancient sites and centuries-old architectural highlights appear seamlessly alongside trendy cafés, shops and squares alive with the bustle of local life. Motril is much the same, with its mix of Moorish and Mudéjar treasures, and bars and restaurants serving authentic Andalusian food and drink, while an impressive fortified monastery and pazo, and a café bar-lined promenade, are among the highlights to discover in Vilagarcia de Arousa on the gorgeous Galician coast. At each of these charming towns and cities, you’ll find uncrowded beaches and places to retreat for laid-back relaxation.[ReadMoreMob]

There are also visits to popular, busier destinations on this diverse Spanish discovery; you’re in for easy, enriching explorations  of Cádiz, Mahon and Cartagena too. Head into Cádiz for majestic ancient monuments and traditional tapas bars, or perhaps enjoy time on the city’s golden-sand beaches; and delve into the Roman heritage of Cartagena, where the medieval Castillo de la Concepcion, Roman amphitheatre and Bateria de Castillitos offer an immersive insight into this Murcian city’s incredible history. Meanwhile, there’s time in Mahón to capture the very essence of Menorca, whether you choose to take in the capital’s ornate architecture and landmarks, or simply head to the beach.

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.
