Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ newest flagship to serve UK, Azores, Madeira itineraries

The inaugural cruise programme for Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ new flagship Bolette has been unveiled, including a number of brand new itineraries and a series of UK cruises beginning in 2021.

Bolette‘s maiden voyage under the Fred Olsen banner will be a seven-night cruise through Scotland and Northern Ireland, setting sail from Southampton on March 5. This will be followed by two further UK cruises before the ship sets sail for the Portuguese autonomous regions of Azores and Madeira over the Easter break.

The inaugural programme will include itineraries previously scheduled for Boudicca, another recently acquired vessel, with a number of brand new sailings added, and will operate predominantly from the port of Dover.

Bolette is the former Amsterdam, which had sailed with Holland America Line from 2000 until early 2020 when it was acquired by Fred Olsen.
