As you visit a string of Portuguese islands, including a trio in the hard-to-reach Azores archipelago, you’ll experience the beauty of their natural wonders to the full.[ReadMoreMob] Perhaps begin your time in the Azores on Terceira Island’s beautiful south coast, on tour from Praia da Vitoria, where the UNESCO-listed historic city of Angra do Heroísmo is yours to explore, and unspoilt Atlantic Ocean vistas await at the top of the Monte Brasil volcano. At Faial Island, a wonderland of verdant forests, lakes, volcanic landscapes and peaks, such as Capelinhos Volcano, are best discovered on a scenic drive or 4x4 adventure, though you could opt to go in search of sperm whales on a whale watching tour – an unforgettable experience.

On São Miguel, Ponta Delgada is your gateway to the scenes of the Sete Cidades Volcano, with its 13-kilometre-wide crater and colourful lakes, which are amongst the most spectacular of the Azores’ must-see sights. The Furnas Valley hot springs and Terra Nosta Park’s haven of gardens, geo-thermal pools and forests make for memorable discoveries too. The highlights of your island hopping aren’t restricted to Azorean delights though, as the lush, fragrant lands of Madeira also await. From Funchal you can revel in views of forested landscapes via the levada walking trails; see and smell the vibrant colours and scents of botanical gardens, on a flower safari with a local enthusiast. Meanwhile, the Madeira Wine Festival will provide an insight into the history and traditional of the island’s wine production, and of course plenty of chances to sample the local tipples.

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.

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

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.
