Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines to offer British Isles and scenic 'no port' sailings from Dover this summer as it prepares for return to cruising



Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has today unveiled a brand new 'Welcome Back' programme of cruises to showcase the best of the British Isles this summer, with scenic-only cruises and those with ports of call available on new ship Bolette from Dover.

Bolette will embark on her inaugural sailing with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines from Dover on 16th August, on a three-night, no port 'Maiden Voyage'. Scenic sailings of the British Isles and chances to step ashore and explore the Orkney and Shetland isles will follow.

Peter Deer, Managing Director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“We are so excited to be unveiling these new summer cruises today. So often overlooked, our British Isles are home to some of the most wonderful wildlife, and so much spectacular scenery that is best enjoyed from the water.

“We have worked with the Port of Dover and offered sailings from there for many, many years, and we are so pleased that this will be the first port that our new ship Bolette will set sail from. Dover will provide the perfect gateway to our wonderful British Isles, with the beautiful white cliffs as a backdrop as we embark on our new scenic sailings.

“This is an incredibly important milestone for our business, and we can’t wait to welcome our guests on board our new-look fleet this summer.”

Sonia Limbrick, Head of Cruise at the Port of Dover, said:

“We are thrilled to see Fred. Olsen return to Dover, having really missed the Fred. Olsen team and guests.

“We are also looking forward to welcoming Bolette for her first ever sailing with Fred. Olsen - another milestone in our long history with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. We are very proud to have been chosen for this special occasion.”
