Fred Olsen to return to Dover this month on Bolette

Fred Olsen to return to Dover this month


Fred Olsen Cruise Lines will return to Dover this month, offering late summer cruises to destinations including Norway, France, Spain and the Adriatic.

The line’s flagship Bolette will sail from the port in August, September and October.

The eight-night Scenic Isles and Lochs of Scotland voyage will be the ship’s first cruise from Dover in 2022, giving guests the chance to enjoy scenic sailing of the Sound of Mull, explore the remote islands of Orkney and Shetland, and look out for whales and birdlife alongside marine wildlife charity ORCA.

From September to November, Dover will become the homeport for Balmoral.

The ship will then offer itineraries crossing into the Arctic Circle in search of the Northern Lights, as well as the Adriatic and Mediterranean on a 28-day voyage around Greece and the Adriatic, among other voyages.

Explore ancient sites with Fred Olsen

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines director of product and customer service Clare Ward said: “We have offered cruises from Dover for many years, and we are really pleased to be returning again this summer. Our ships always receive such a warm welcome.

“Our Journey Planners have hand-crafted these late summer sailings specially, taking advantage of the south-easterly location of the port to maximise the experiences on board and ashore for our guests.

“This summer, guests will be able to enjoy a scenic sailing of the river Seine in a short four-night break to France, experience Sami culture in Arctic Norway in a journey to seek out the Northern Lights, or voyage to the Adriatic, with opportunities to explore the ancient sites of Dubrovnik, Kotor and Athens on a longer break.”

In late July, Fred Olsen removed its solo supplement on a range of cruises departing in 2022 and 2023.

The offer is applicable on new bookings made by 31 August 2022, on selected September 2022 to March 2023 cruises.
