Named Bolette, after Fred. Olsen Junior’s great-great-grandmother, and Fred. Olsen Senior’s great-grandmother. She was married to one of the original Olsen brothers behind the business, Petter Olsen, and was extremely well regarded in her community. There is a church in Hvitsten in Norway, where the Olsen’s family live, that she helped to build and gifted to the village. The family have had many ships named after her.
The Olsen’s used to have a ship called Borealis in their fleet many years ago, in 1948, long before they became a cruise line.
The name ties in well with our company heritage stemming from Norway, with so many people going in search of the Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis – with us, and celebrates the romanticism of cruising.
As we celebrate the launch of our new ships and look ahead to the latest members of the Fred. Olsen family setting sail, we’ve created a fantastic special offer to give you even more reason and book and join us on board.
Book any 2021 or 2022 cruise on Bolette or Borealis by 30th September and you’ll benefit from our Freedom Fare PLUS. We’ll take care of your tips for your Cabin Stewardess and Waiter and give you up to £100 per person On Board Spend*, so you can treat yourself to the little touches that make your holiday extra special – indulgent speciality dining, spa treatments and much more.
