Each of their smaller ships has its own personality and design features that make them special. Those who travel often with Fred. Olsen will also notice some things are the same across all our ships like their friendly crew, first-class service and excellent attention to detail.
Fred. Olsen welcome you to explore their fleet of smaller-sized ships by clicking the links below to reveal the deck plans. And of course, if you have any questions, one of the friendly team would love to chat with you.
Proudly bearing the name of Fred. Olsen Jnr’s great-great-grandmother, Bolette harbours an historic connection to the Olsen family. Exuding classic, elegant style in her exterior and interior design, and featuring spacious and comfortable public areas, as well as just 690 cabins, the flagship leads our fleet of smaller ships by example.
Thanks to her ability to cruise at higher speeds than other ships, Borealis – sister ship of their flagship Bolette – is perfectly suited for sailing the longer voyages across the globe. Cruising faster means she can include more stops, scenic discoveries and highlights into each itinerary.
Beautiful Balmoral is small enough to navigate Europe’s most picturesque waterways so guests can enjoy hours of scenic cruising. Balmoral retains a warm, civilised atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space, including an al-fresco restaurant.
At the heart of every Fred. Olsen holiday adventure is, of course, your ship. On their smaller, more personable ships, you’ll feel relaxed and at home from the moment you board, and will soon get to know the attentive crew, your fellow guests and new-found friends.
There’s no comparison to discovering the world on a Fred. Olsen ship. Find out more about life on board Bolette, Borealis, and Balmoral.
