About your cruise

Fred. Olsen Bolette

Fred. Olsen’s flagship Bolette is everything that their loyal guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship. Proudly bearing the name of Fred. Olsen Jr.’s great-great-grandmother, as many other Olsen vessels have over the years, she exudes classic, elegant style in her exterior and interior design, features spacious and comfortable public areas, and has all the facilities and special touches you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. While she’s one of the largest ships, by overall size, in their fleet, Bolette has capacity for less than 1,400 guests. So, in keeping with their smaller-ship ethos, you’ll find that you’re not overcrowded on board, and have plenty of space in which to indulge yourself in the stylish dining venues, enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and fantastic entertainment at the bars, lounges and theatres, and while away the hours by the all-season pool. And of course, with their friendly staff providing our typical level of personal, attentive service, there’s an intimate feel to the on board experience too.

Cruise Information

 A navigation of the peaceful Nieuwe Maas on smaller ship Bolette will provide a relaxing start to your time in the Netherlands, while the sights of Rotterdam are also yours to take in at leisure. See and compare the architecture of the futuristic Erasmusbrug Bridge, unusual Markthal and the Cube Houses, and take advantage of an overnight stay to tick-off the city’s collection of interesting museums and galleries.

Visiting Amsterdam will be a particular highlight; enjoy time to experience the seasonal delights of the Keukenhof Gardens, where millions of tulips burst into life with vibrant colour and fragrance in the spring, and a chance to visit the Floriade Horticulture Expo, a fascinating decennial celebration of ecology and botany. You’ll dock within a mile of the Dutch capital, so you could discover other attractions, such as the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring and Anne Frank House, with ease if you wish too.
