Introducing Bolette & Borealis from the Fred Olsen fleet
Cruising is about creating experiences that attract like-minded travel enthusiasts; people who love to experience nature, absorb other cultures and are as excited to engage with the wonders of the world as we are.
As we begin to set sail again, Cruise Direct are delighted to present the two newest members of the Fred Olsen fleet, Bolette & Borealis.
In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising. There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for everyone. There is another way to cruise. A way that is based on five generations of seafaring. Where cabins are called cabins, and ships look like ships. Where the journey is as important as the destination.
Bolette is Fred Olsen’s newly appointed flagship. She proudly bears the name of Fred. Olsen Jnr.’s great-great-grandmother. Borealis is the sister ship to Bolette. Her higher speeds are perfectly suited to carrying guests around the globe, allowing them to see more highlights along the way. This makes her perfectly suited to sail Fred Olsen’s ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ voyage in 2023.
Fred Olsen have always believed that smaller is better, and this is more evident now than ever before. With fewer passengers, crew can get to know each of the guests, and the atmosphere on board Fred Olsen ships is always warm and civilised. The smaller size of Fred Olsen’s ships allows you access to more interesting places, such as Norway’s lesser-known Fjords, and means you can dock in the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities.
Fred Olsen’s on board RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats) also give you the chance to explore even more fascinating places along the way. Though the largest in their fleet overall, Bolette and Borealis are still much smaller than most other cruise lines with just 700 cabins. Both ships are very spacious and have lounges, restaurants, bars, and even a tranquil spa with thermal beds and a hydrotherapy pool.
