Exploring Norway’s spectacular fjords in early summer presents an opportunity to see their scenic landscapes and dramatic natural wonders at their most awe-inspiring. Diverting into Lysefjord, Hardangerfjord, Hjørundfjord – rarely sailed by cruise ships – and Romsdalsfjord will provide views of remarkable rock formations, towering cliffs and mountainous valleys alive with verdant flora. From on board Bolette, you’ll witness the might of waterfalls when they’re at their most powerful; watch Furebergfossen within Maurangerfjord, and the Seven Sisters amongst Geirangerfjord’s impressive, UNESCO-listed landscapes.[ReadMore]

You'll have the opportunity to head ashore to discover some of the fjordland’s greatest and most memorable sights and experiences too. Visiting Eidfjord is a chance to tour to Vøringsfossen, another of Norway’s magnificent waterfalls, or even go kayaking on the waters of Hardangerfjord, while Hellesylt is your gateway to Hellesylt Waterfall, the Tystigen Glacier and Hornindalsvatnet lake. From Andalsnes, perhaps ride the Rauma Railway, for an up-close look at Romsdalsfjord’s mountainous landscapes; and in Bergen, join a local for a hike to see the city through native eyes and enjoy the view from atop Mount Floyen too.

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.
