Visits to three diverse European cities presents opportunities for memorable springtime sightseeing, both indoors and out. In Germany, after an early morning sail along the River Elbe, Bolette will call at Hamburg. You’ve an overnight stay here, allowing ample time for exploration – take the city in at your leisure, explore the canals, discover the lakes and see the bridges, see historic landmarks and monuments including the Rathaus and St. Nikolai Steeple, and visit attractions such as the Miniatur Wunderland museum.

Via the North Sea Canal, you’ll also sail to the Netherlands’ capital, Amsterdam. Once again, you’ve plenty of time for exploration ashore here; perhaps take a boat tour of the city’s iconic canals, taking in views of the fine architecture on display, join the locals at the early morning flower market, and tick famous sites such as Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum off your must-visit list. Finally, in Belgium, there’s a visit to Antwerp. Bolette will be the only cruise ship in port during your time here, so you’re in for a less-crowded, even more rewarding experience; use your time wisely to taste authentic Belgian chocolate and beer, learn about Antwerp’s diamonds with a local expert, and much more.

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 


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'.


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.


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.
