Experience a festive season you’ll remember forever, on this magical discovery of Norway’s wintertime wonders.[ReadMoreMob] At the centre of your memorable adventure is a special extended stay in Alta, one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. On a tour out into the arctic wilderness, away from light-polluted skies, you may get to witness the multi-coloured ribbons of light dancing across the darkness. During your time in Alta you could also discover unspoilt wintery scenes via a husky-drawn sled, and meet with – and learn about – local communities.

Before your Boxing Day call at Alta, you’ll spend Christmas Day at sea and crossing the Arctic Circle, with all the traditional food, fun and festivity to enjoy on board Bolette. Meanwhile, as 2022 nears its end, you’re in for a discovery of the rugged landscapes and rural settlements of Norway’s far-northern reaches too; there’s a rare chance to explore colourful Hammerfest and its surrounding scenery, and a visit to Honningsvåg, from where you can venture to the North Cape plateau at the ‘top of Europe’. You’ll also visit Bergen and its many attractions, including the Bryggen Wharf and Fløibanen funicular railway, and see-in 2023 in pretty Alesund.

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.

Service with a smile

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.
