Seychelles to Southampton Cruise

  • Destination:
  • Departure Date: 21/12/23
  • Duration: 60 Nights
Overview

Proudly bearing the name of the wife of one of the original founding brothers - Petter Olsen, Bolette has a 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, our flagship leads our fleet of smaller ships by example.

She can travel at high speeds, enabling us to reach destinations quicker, meaning our journey planners can craft itineraries that include more visits to ports and places on even our shorter cruises, and more time sailing the most scenic routes.

Bolette provides guests with plenty of space to relax within the bars, lounges, theatres and out on the open decks. The Observatory is where you can enjoy the scenic cruising through large panoramic windows. The Auditorium hosts cooking demonstrations as well as specialist enrichment talks and evening movie nights. Up on deck eight, you’ll find our Lido Bar and swimming pool. The retractable roof means you can enjoy a swim year-round, wherever you’re cruising. And of course, with friendly staff providing our typical level of personal, attentive service, there’s an intimate feel to the on board experience too.

Enrichment Facilities

A Fred. Olsen cruise is about making the most of your time away from it all. This is why we provide a variety of experiences, events and classes for our guests, to ensure that every day enjoyed on board our smaller ships is as rewarding, varied and memorable as possible.

Activities vary from cruise to cruise, and are highlighted each day in your copy of The Daily Times. They could include insightful lectures from expert guest speakers; engaging arts and crafts sessions, such as watercolour tutorials; dancing and singing lessons; and much more.

On Bolette and Borealis, cookery demonstrations from our expert chefs showcase their skills and teach you how to make your favourite Fred. Olsen dishes at home.

LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Lots of our guests like to use their sea days or longer voyages to try their hand at something they haven't done before, so we host sociable activities like learning to play the ukulele or singing in a choir. Or you can refine your craft skills, practice your watercolours and learn some photography skills in our new Olsen Art Studio.

Gratuities

Gratuities for our dedicated service team are not included in the cost of your holiday. While tipping is entirely at your discretion, we pride ourselves on the service offered to our guests, and are confident that you’ll wish to reward staff on board for the attention you receive.

Typically, gratuities are charged at £5.00 per person, per day for guests aged 12 and over. This amount is split equally between your stewardess and restaurant waiter, and will be automatically added to your on board account. While very much appreciated, these gratuities are voluntary, and therefore can be adjusted or removed completely at Guest Services on board the ship if you wish; and you are welcome to tip personally if you prefer.

For your convenience, you can also pre-pay gratuities before your cruise. We'll check with you at the time of booking if you’d like to pay prior to your cruise.

Pre-payment can be made anytime up to 5 days before departure by simply calling our Guest Services team on 0800 0355 145 or e-mail [email protected]

Our Guest Services team are available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Entertainment

A Fred. Olsen cruise is about making the most of your time away from it all, this is why we provide a variety of experiences, events and classes for our guests all detailed in your Daily Times.

Bar & Lounge

With fewer people on board our smaller, more intimate fleet, it's easy to find live entertainment to enjoy, a bar stool to perch on as you chat with new-found friends or a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink and a good book. 

EVENING ENTERTAINMENT

Night time entertainment is a high point of any Fred. Olsen cruise. When the lights go down, we’ll treat you to a selection of live shows ranging from music and cabaret to quick-fire stand-up comedy. Just relax, sit back and enjoy the fabulous acts with your favourite tipple or cocktail.

Following the show, you can stroll under the stars on deck, or dance the night away to tunes performed by your ship's resident band. And with our fabulous Dance Hosts, no-one goes too long without a dance partner.

DINING AND DRINKS

Dining on board a Fred. Olsen ship is a real pleasure. Enjoy a cocktail in one of our stylish bars, with new found friends; before heading to dinner for a delicious five-course meal crafted by our talented on board chefs, who pay attention to every detail, and served by your knowledgeable and friendly waiter. With wine pairing suggestions made by our sommelier, your taste buds will be tantalised as you sail serenely to your next exciting destination.

The Observatory

The Observatory, with its tranquil atmosphere and timeless elegance, is perfect for moments of relaxation and reflection on board Bolette. By day, take a seat in one of the comfortable chairs and watch the world go by through the large panoramic windows, or perhaps stop-by in the evening to enjoy pre or post-dinner drinks and cocktails accompanied by soothing sounds provided by our resident Pianist.

This stylish venue is also where we host our premium Traditional Afternoon Tea service, which offers a selection of delicious sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones to be enjoyed with top quality teas and unforgettable scenic views.

Afternoon tea is bookable 13 weeks in advance via your My Cruises account, or alternatively whilst on board

The Bookmark Café & Lounge

Situated in a quiet location on Lounge Deck 5, midship, the Bookmark Café is the perfect spot for some peaceful relaxation. Perhaps start your day with a cup of Earl Grey or breakfast tea, or take a seat in the afternoon and read a book whilst sipping a delicious latte or cappuccino. You could also treat yourself to handmade chocolates and freshly baked treats.

To make choosing your coffee or tea even easier, you have the option to pre-book your Bookmark Bestseller card. The card includes 7 hot drinks for you to enjoy, as well as a bag of milk or mixed truffles, and you'll find it added to your cabin account when you arrive on board, all ready for immediate use. Why not treat someone special and arrange a Bookmark Bestseller card for their cruise too?

You can pre book your Bookmark Bestseller card 13 weeks before departure via your My Cruises account, or alternatively whilst on board

Morning Light Pub & Lounge

Akin to your 'local' at home, the Morning Light Pub & Lounge feels familiar, warm and welcoming, featuring plenty of comfortable seating, a well-stocked bar and décor designed to resemble a British pub, but with a Scandinavian twist.

Open throughout the day, from lunchtime to late evening, this inviting venue is a space in which you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy a drink in the company of your loved ones, friends and fellow guests. Perhaps stop by for a quick pint or glass of wine in the afternoon; for a pre-dinner drink; or to wind down at the end of the night when resident bands and musicians showcase their talents here.

Ocean Bar

Situated close to the Neptune Balcony on Lounge Deck 5, the spacious and sociable Ocean Bar is the perfect place to begin your evening, enjoy a drink or two and catch up with friends and fellow guests before taking in the live show.

After the show, the Ocean Bar is a great place to be too; the venue really comes to life in the late hours, when the resident band or DJ provides the music that's sure to have you on the dancefloor until it is time to finally say goodnight. 

The Oriental Tea Room

The Oriental Tea Room is our most elegant lounge. Here everything has been designed with quiet beauty and gentle elegance in mind. The colours are pale and powder-soft, the light is clear and calm, the furnishings are inspired by Chinese silks and rare orchids.

During the day, we serve a refreshing menu of unusual loose-leaf teas from the East and on some afternoons we offer either a delicious afternoon tea together with petit fours and finger sandwiches, or a tea-tasting experience where you can find out about each tea’s story and origin.

In the evenings, join us for a relaxing drink with tea-inspired cocktails like a Mint Julep or Lime & Mint Mar-tea-ni, canapés from Colours and Tastes restaurant and a selection of cold beers including specialities from Japan, Singapore and Thailand.

Lido Bar

When you're spending the day relaxing in the sunshine and enjoying a few dips in the pool, the Lido Bar is the ideal place to grab a drink if you're in need of something to help you cool off.

Situated close to the pool and Jacuzzis on Lido Deck, midship, this bar is open throughout the day and is a bright, open space with comfortable rattan furniture, perfect for enjoying a cold beer perhaps, a soft drink or even a fruity, exotic cocktail. 

Piano Bar

The Piano Bar is the perfect place to make the most of peaceful moments on board Bolette, especially during time at sea. Settle in, sit back and enjoy a drink whilst enjoying the laidback ambience of the venue and the restful sounds of music provided by a talented pianist.

Perhaps head to the Piano Bar before dinner and begin your evening in style with a cocktail, or visit this elegant, spacious venue after the evening show to wind down before retiring to your cabin for another relaxing night's sleep. 

Neptune Lounge & Balcony

When the lights go down at the Neptune Lounge and you settle in for the evening at Bolette's elegant, two-tiered entertainment venue, you're in for an entertainment extravaganza of live shows ranging from music and cabaret to quick-fire comedy and much more.

There is plenty of comfortable seating in this spacious venue, with unspolit views of the grand stage to be enjoyed from every vantage point - including the upper-tier Neptune Balcony.

The lounge is also used for daytime lectures and events, as well as Captain's Welcome and Farewell parties.

The Auditorium

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. 

The Bolette Card Room

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.

Boutique Shopping

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. 

The Flower Shop

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.

Photo Gallery

Throughout your time on board, our 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, our 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. 

Neptune Balcony

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.  

Headline Acts

Alongside our resident show companies, guest performers and headline acts such as vocalists, comedians and magicians are also on hand to showcase their talents and entertain with very special performances in our Neptune Lounges.

Guests could take a seat and enjoy the sounds of classical piano over a glass of their favourite drink; dance the night away to music provided by a DJ or live singer; and much more, all in the comfort of our stylish and spacious bars and lounges.

Resident Show Company

Every evening our smaller ships come alive with the bright lights, colourful sights and wonderful sounds of live entertainment provided by the incredible singers, dancers and actors of our multi-talented resident show companies.

At the main entertainment venue on board their Fred. Olsen ship, guests can take a seat, settle in and simply enjoy extravaganzas of song, dance, music, cabaret and theatre in the company of loved ones, friends and fellow guests.

The Botanical Room

Located next to The Oriental Tea Room on Bolette, the new Botanical Room is dedicated to celebrating the beauty and brilliance of our natural earth. This elegant and peaceful lounge has been designed to inspire green-fingered guests in the beautiful surroundings of lush green and vibrant yellows. Here you can relax and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or tea, whilst also finding magazines and books on the topics of gardening, flowers, plant care and the various flora species across the world.
