Enjoy a pre-Christmas escape filled with sun, sand, sights and – in typical Fred. Olsen cruise style – a chance to experience a very special, and unforgettable, natural event.[ReadMoreMob] Your visit to the Canaries and Tenerife in particular is timed to coincide with the Geminid Meteor Shower’s peak, offering you the best chance to see the darting lights of ‘shooting stars’ as they streak across the sky. Bolette docks in Tenerife until late, allowing ample time for tours designed to see the Meteor Shower amongst the island’s volcanic landscapes, away from the noise and light pollution of Santa Cruz. Perhaps take the opportunity to unravel the mysteries of the Pyramids of Güímar; see mighty Mount Teide, Spain’s highest peak, too.

Elsewhere in the Canaries, your journey takes you to Lanzarote, with its lunar-like landscapes ripe for exploration; to discover the volcanos and verdant forests of La Palma and La Gomera; and on to Gran Canaria, where the rolling sands of the Maspalomas dunes await you. There are plenty of opportunities to sample the local cultures of attraction-packed destinations such as Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Gran Canaria’s pretty towns of Puerto de Mogán and Santa Brígida; or simply make the most of the Canarian sunshine on some of the archipelago’s finest beaches. Not far from the Canaries, there’s also a visit to the wonderfully floral Portuguese island of Madeira, while Portugal’s capital – renowned for its maritime heritage, diverse architecture and local culinary delights – is yours to explore en route to your island discovery.

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.
