With Fred. Olsen offering fantastic cuisine across their fleet, Bolette maintains the same high level of food and service across all restaurants. As well as the two-tiered main restaurant, where guests will be able to sit down for exemplary meals served by attentive crew at breakfast, lunch and dinner, there are a variety of other eateries to enjoy, with speciality venues on hand to make your meals even more special.
From live entertainment to relaxing evenings spent with a drink in hand, Fred. Olsen's Bolette has it all. Once the live shows are over, be sure to head to one of the bars and lounges located across the ship where the expert bartenders will be more than happy to whip up your favourite drink. Round the night off with a visit to the casino and see if it's your lucky day.
What's more, if you're looking for something a little different, be sure to catch a demonstration at the culinary theatre where the experts are on hand to showcase food and wine from the destinations visited along the way.
Between shore excursions and evening entertainment, there's plenty to keep you busy during your time at sea onboard Bolette. If you're looking to enjoy a pampering session, the spacious spa invites you to enjoy a few hours of luxury in the hydrotherapy pool, thermal spa and treatment rooms. Alternatively, why not spend the afternoon lounging by the main pool, where the weather won't be able to deter you thanks to a retractable roof, or head to one of the lounges and mingle with other guests.
Make sure to stop by at the Turkish bath-style thermal suite to have all your muscle aches soothed and ready you for your next day of excursions or nights of partying. Here you’ll be treated to heated ceramic beds, aromatherapy steam rooms and mineral baths as well.

We were delighted with our first Fred Olsen Cruise. SS Boletta is a lovely ship with an excellent Captain, crew and staff. They made a huge effort to ensure that we all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
First time With Fred Olson, we sailed on the Bolette & she is a really nice ship. Check in was very speedy & stress free. The cabin was clean & the beds were very comfortable. Entertainment was very good from the evening quiz, Gabriel the solo singer was exceptional & the shows in the Neptune lounge, late night entertainment in the Observatory there was something on for all tastes.
We travelled on the Bolette from Dover to Amsterdam and Antwerp. We stayed in an inside cabin, myself, my husband and our 2 year old son. We had a wonderful cruise. The staff were absolutely amazing. Everyone knew our sons name and they were just fantastic with him. There wasn't much for him to do on the cruise as he is so young but the staff made up for this! Regilyn in The View buffet restaurant was incredible especially with Noah and Rev (our cabin stewardess) and all the ladies along the corridor we stayed on (room 2574) were also amazing. Our son had so much fun and it made our cruise so much more enjoyable. Thank you! The food was also fantastic. We have been on a cruise before with a different company and the food on Bolette was far better. A wonderful first abroad family holiday. Thank you!
Very nice cruise, the staff were wonderful and embarking and disembarkation was very efficient.
