New Fred Olsen ship sets sail

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ new flagship Bolette made its debut sailing from Southampton this November 

The ship’s inaugural season of 26 departures from the port runs until August 2022.

Bolette will sail to Antwerp and Amsterdam on a five-night itinerary, with future destinations including the Amalfi Coast, Norwegian fjords, European cities and Iceland. Durations range from four to 19-nights.

The line’s head of destination experience and itinerary planning Martin Lister said: “Bolette’s inaugural programme from Southampton has been hand-crafted to offer guests aboard some really special opportunities. Whether that’s seeking out the phenomenal Northern Lights, discovering the history of the Balkan regions or sailing into the heart of the Norwegian fjords to witness their beauty direct from the ship.


“We’ve also timed a number of our cruises to coincide with special events ashore. For example, our call into Amsterdam in April will allow guests to enjoy the world-renowned Floriade Expo, and we will visit Monaco in time for the Grand Prix in May. Guests joining us in the Canary Islands in early December will also have the chance to witness the Geminid Meteor Shower during their cruise.”
