Bolette

Proudly bearing the name of the wife of one of the original founding brothers - Petter Olsen, Bolette has a historic connection to the Olsen family. Exuding classic, elegant style, and featuring spacious and comfortable public areas, with just 690 cabins, our flagship leads our fleet of smaller ships by example. [ReadMoreMob]

She can travel at high speeds, enabling us to reach destinations more quickly, meaning our journey planners can craft itineraries that include additional visits to exciting destinations, and more time sailing the most scenic routes. 

Bolette provides guests with plenty of space to relax within the bars, lounges, theatres and out on the open decks.[ReadMoreDesk] In the Observatory, you’ll be able to enjoy one of our Signature Experiences of scenic cruising, through the large panoramic windows – the perfect accompaniment to the commentary you’ll receive as you learn more about the waterways and fjords you’ll be sailing along.

The Auditorium hosts cooking demonstrations, where you’ll see our talented chefs create our Treats of the Region dishes, and have the chance to sample them too. Up on deck eight, you’ll find the Lido Bar and swimming pool. The retractable roof means you can enjoy a swim all year round, wherever you’re cruising. Of course, with our friendly staff providing the personal and attentive service they’re renowned for, there’s an intimate feel to the on board experience too.

Depending on the length of your cruise holiday there will be one or more formal evenings whilst you are on board. This is your chance to add glitz and glamour to your dining experience.

Most men opt to wear either a dinner jacket, or dark suit and tie. Ladies are often seen looking fabulous in anything from dresses to gowns, or a skirt or trousers with a sparkly top.

All Fred. Olsen cruise ships feature a casual dining experience for those guests who do not wish to join the formal evenings. Dress code for these restaurants is smart casual every evening. These restaurants are The View Restaurant (Bolette and Borealis) and Palms Café (Balmoral)

The exact number of formal nights will be highlighted on your cruise ticket. Below is a guide to the number of formal nights you can expect to enjoy on cruises of various durations.

On board all of our ships, we do our best to accommodate most dietary requests. So, vegetarian, vegan, low fat, low cholesterol, low salt, dairy-free, lactose-free, wheat-free and gluten-free food are all catered for.

We also kindly request that you make us aware of any special dietary requests at the time of booking or by calling our Guest Services Team on 0800 0355 145. We’ll do our best to source exact products, or provide certain foods, such as diabetic desserts. Guests with food allergies or intolerances will also have the opportunity to speak to the Maitre ’d or Executive Chef once on board to discuss any requirements. 

We can also provide a vegan option for our Traditional Afternoon Tea service, which is available on all sea days. Prices can be found on the link below.

Please note that we may not be able to source specific brands given our location or the availability at local ports. 

Our on board restaurants provide a wide range of delicious and freshly cooked meals, so we offer a selection of dining options throughout the day to suit you.

Breakfast:

Normally served between 7.30 and 10.30am in the main restaurants and casual dining venues.

Lunch:

Normally served between 12.00 and 2.00pm in the main restaurants and casual dining venues.

Afternoon Tea:

Each day, complimentary afternoon tea is served between 3.45 and 4.45pm in the buffet service restaurant, with sandwiches, savouries, scones and cakes, along with fresh tea and coffee.*

*Please note this is not the Tradtional Premium Afternoon Tea service, which is available on selected days in the Observatory for just £13 per person.

Dinner:

Please request either the first or second seating (6.15pm or 8.30pm) when you make your booking. You can also request your preferred table, but we can’t always guarantee this.

Your restaurant seating card will be in your room when you board, which confirms your table number and dining time. This will be your allocated table for the duration of your cruise.

Please note that evening dining times may vary on our One Night Cruises. 

Casual Dining:

A buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner will also be served in the Palms Café (Balmoral) The View and The Poolside (Bolette and Borealis). 

For those guests requiring a more casual dinner option, The View and Palms Cafés will be open from 6.30pm to 9.00pm. Dining at the Poolside (Bolette and Borealis) is available throughout the day between 10.00am and 7.00pm.

On some nights, we have themed dining evenings in the buffet restaurants. These evenings are often very popular so we recommend you book in advance to secure a table.

Speciality Dining: 

For an even more indulgent and memorable dining experience, each ship in the Fred. Olsen fleet offers speciality dining in an exclusive venue. Vasco and Colours & Tastes take inspiration from traditional Indian cuisine and modern Asian Fusion dining.

Our speciality dining venues are open from 6pm on the days advertised in The Daily Times. 

You can pre-book speciality dining via My Cruises from 13 weeks and up to 24 hours before departure, for £10pp. If you'd like to book once on board, speciality dining will be charged to your on board account at £15pp. 

Each of our ships feature a selection of stylish dining venues, all serving a range of indulgent, expertly-prepared dishes. At breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll always find delicious treats which will tempt your taste buds. And, as all food is included on your cruise, you can indulge as much or as little as you like.

Start the day with eggs made to order; a hearty full English, or a lighter breakfast from the buffet if you prefer. Lunchtime offers a select á la carte menu alongside a tempting buffet for you to indulge in up to three courses.

Experience evening dining just how it should be in the spacious restaurants on board, serving up a sumptuous five-course á la carte menu each evening. You can request a table size at the time you make your booking, although this cannot be guaranteed.

Alternatively you can opt to dine in our self-service restaurant on each vessel, for a more relaxed experience.

As each evening winds down, our buffet restaurants open for late-night snacks if you’re still feeling peckish. Of course, you can also order room service up until 11pm every day.

While the main restaurants are always popular, during your cruise you may be tempted to try something different for an evening or two. When you’re in the mood for something extra special, each ship in our fleet features speciality dining (a small supplement applies). Our Colours & Tastes or Vasco menus offer delicious Asian fusion or Indian cuisines. 

Don't forget to download our app, so that once on board you can see all the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.

Unlike some other cruise lines, we don't charge a small fortune at the bar. We want you to relax and enjoy your holiday, and we know that many of you prefer to have a drink in your hand while making the most of your time away.

You shouldn't have to worry about the cost of enjoying yourself, which is why we always ensure that our drinks are reasonably priced. For example, a glass of house white costs just £6 and a pint of lager is £5, while a gin & tonic is around £5 (depending on the brand of gin)*.

If coffee is your tipple, take a seat in the Bookmark Cafe and enjoy a delicious cup of your favourite hot drink, or stop by and grab one to take away, using your reusable cup.
