Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines
Bolette will depart on its maiden voyage from Southampton in March 2021
Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ has revealed the inaugural cruise programme for its new ship Bolette, which will include a series of UK cruises.
The ship’s maiden voyage will be a seven-night ‘Scotland and Northern Ireland’ cruise departing from Southampton, UK, on 5 March 2021. This will be followed by two further UK cruises before Bolette is redeployed to the Portuguese archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira in April. The programme will include itineraries previously scheduled for Boudicca (which will be retired from the fleet) alongside new sailings, largely operated from the port of Dover, UK.
“Our new ships have been a long time in the planning, so it is great to be able to officially unveil our itineraries for Bolette today,” said Clare Ward, director of product and customer service. “We know that our guests can’t wait to get back cruising again, and to experience our new ships for themselves. Now they can really start planning their first holiday back with us, whether they are looking for a UK break, to escape to warmer climates or for something a little more adventurous.”
Meanwhile, sister ship Borealis has arrived in Rosyth, Scotland to join the rest of the cruise line’s fleet. Bolette is due to arrive at the port in mid-September.
“It is great to see the first of our two new ships, Borealis, next to the rest of our fleet,” said Peter Deer, managing director of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. “This is an important milestone for us and marks the start of a new future for our company.”
