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.

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.
