Spending five-nights on board Bolette, and discovering the scenic highlights of two of Britain’s most beautiful isles, makes for the perfect short break. From the moment you embark in Dover, you’ll find your time away relaxing, rewarding and restful; you’ve ample opportunities to make the most of your ship’s facilities, enjoy the delicious food and fantastic entertainment, and simply enjoy the pleasures of Fred. Olsen cruising while our friendly staff take care of everything for you.

On your journey, you sail to and from Scotland, where two charming destinations await you on consecutive days. You’ll not only see the rugged landscapes of the Shetlands and Orkneys from Bolette, but get to explore them during time ashore too. RSPB Sumburgh Head, where fulmars, puffins and various other bird species live and breed amongst the sea cliffs and rugged landscapes, is a particular highlight to seek out on from Lerwick, which is also your gateway to the spectacular coastal scenes of Northmavine. In the Orkneys, a stop at Kirkwall also offers a chance to uncover historic treasures such as the UNESCO-listed Neolithic village of Skara Brae and ceremonial stone circles of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar.
