See the beauty of some of the Norwegian fjordland’s most scenic regions, waterways and natural wonders. On board Bolette, a diversion into size-restricted Lysefjord is a chance to witness the sheer size of its steep, jagged mountains, while your journey also takes you into picturesque Nordfjord where the sight of Hornelen – North Europe’s tallest sea cliff – awaits you.

There is plenty to discover and experience ashore too, with your smaller ship docking closer to the highlights of your destinations. From Olden, tour to the Briksdal Glacier to see and hear vast, creaking ice formations and sample the unspoilt tranquillity of Lovatnet Lake; or even ride the Loen Skylift for panoramic views of Nordfjord from high above its azure waters. A hike with a local is a rewarding way to take in the best of Bergen, from its UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, historic fish market and museums to Mount Floyen – scaled via the Fløibanen funicular railway.

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 

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.
