Exploring Iceland at a time of year with fewer tourists around is a unique and unmissable opportunity to experience one of the world’s most spectacular countries. You’ll find early spring is the perfect time to visit; smaller crowds make it easier to seek-out and marvel at wonders such as those within reach of Reykjavik. You could witness the power of the Gullfoss Waterfall and gushing Geysir hot springs, and see the Godadoss ‘Waterfall of the Gods’. [ReadMore]

A visit to Akureyri provides a chance to experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure; join a whale watching tour to look-out for Humpback and Minke whales as they return to their breeding grounds, as well as dolphins and porpoises in natural habitat. Finally, you get to experience the rugged beauty of Seyðisfjörður, situated between Mount Strandartindur and Mount Bjolfur, and amongst rolling valleys and thundering waterfalls. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, with luck on your side you might even get to see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights when darkness descends during your time in Iceland.

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.
