A feast of sights, scents and flavours await throughout this short, yet rewarding escape to two attraction-packed cities. A navigation of the peaceful Nieuwe Maas on smaller ship Bolette will provide a relaxing start to your time in the Netherlands, while the sights of Rotterdam are also yours to take in at leisure. See and compare the architecture of the futuristic Erasmusbrug Bridge, unusual Markthal and the Cube Houses, and take advantage of an overnight stay to tick-off the city’s collection of interesting museums and galleries.

Visiting Amsterdam will be a particular highlight; enjoy time to experience the seasonal delights of the Keukenhof Gardens, where millions of tulips burst into life with vibrant colour and fragrance in the spring, and a chance to visit the Floriade Horticulture Expo, a fascinating decennial celebration of ecology and botany. You’ll dock within a mile of the Dutch capital, so you could discover other attractions, such as the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring and Anne Frank House, with ease if you wish too.

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
