On a cruise holiday, they know that your on board experience is just as important to you as the time you spend ashore. That’s why Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines are dedicated to ensuring their entertainment programme is packed with activities and memorable performances that help to create inspirational days and unforgettable nights.
When you’re taking time out to relax on Bolette’s spacious Lido Deck, whether on a sea day or after enjoying exploration ashore, the deck’s all-weather swimming pool is perfect for taking a cooling dip after a few hours in the sunshine, or simply swimming a few lengths. For blissful relaxation, head for a Jacuzzi and let the warm, bubbling water soak any cares away.
The pool is surrounded by plenty of open deck space and comfortable loungers, so there’s somewhere to sit or lay down when you’re not in the water too, while there’s no need to move too far to find a bit to eat or something to drink, thanks to the nearby Poolside Café.
Specially-designed to host everything from cooking demonstrations and presentations to cinema evenings and special guest appearances, Bolette’s Auditorium is where guests can take in a host of exciting, educational and interactive events, in addition to the entertainment offered in the main Neptune Lounge.
This stylish, spacious venue has plenty of comfortable seating, which is carefully positioned to offer great views of the stage no matter where guests choose to sit, helping to ensure that every occasion enjoyed in the Auditorium is a unique and memorable experience.
Bringing to life the Olsen family’s appreciation of art, The Olsen Art Studio on board Bolette is an impressive, light and airy space filled with arts and crafts materials for a variety of projects.
It’s a place for those who love to paint or draw at home and would like to refine their skills whilst at sea. And it’s a place for those guests who perhaps used to enjoy art many years ago but have not yet had the opportunity to take it up again.
The studio will host classes and activities guided by different instructors, as well as providing an open space for guests to visit and work on their own particular arts and craft projects.
Featuring plenty of card tables and comfortable chairs, the Bolette Card Room provides guests with a quiet, relaxing space to enjoy a competitive hand or two, or simply a bit of fun, perhaps with a delicious coffee or tea from the nearby Bookmark Café.
Bridge is always a popular pursuit on board, so you’re sure to find players up for a challenge. On some cruises, Bridge tuition is on offer to help you develop your skills.
The shops on board Bolette offer everything you may want or need during your time on board, whether you’re treating yourself or a loved on to a holiday gift or simply need some basic essentials.
Visit the Boutique Shop for designer handbags, perfumes and much more at fantastic Duty Free prices, or perhaps to pick from the range of casual clothing and evening wear if you need a new outfit; and bring home something special from the Jewellery Shop. At the Port Shop, you’ll find everything from sun cream, shampoo and toothpaste to books and tasty snacks too.
Add a touch of floral colour and fragrance to your cabin, or perhaps treat someone special, with a delightful bouquet from the Flower Shop, available on Bolette.
With a choice of both stunning year-round and seasonal flowers, create a personalised bouquet to suit your style, or simply select from the beautifully crafted ready-made arrangements. You also have the opportunity to select single stems to provide the finishing touch to your Formal Night.
Throughout your time on board, there will be expert photographers will be on hand to capture some of the most magical and memorable experiences enjoyed during your cruise holiday.
At the Photo Gallery, the friendly team will be ready to help you view your photos and purchase your favourites – whether you choose to take home individual shots or a photo package.
The Neptune Balcony is the upper level of the two-tiered Neptune Lounge, providing a wonderful vantage point from which to sit back, relax and enjoy the fantastic entertainment offered in Bolette‘s main theatre.
There is plenty of inviting, comfortable seating, and no matter where you sit you get to experience unspoilt views overlooking the grand stage where musicians, comedians, singers and more perform every evening.
