Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines return to Dover

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

Flagship Bolette will sail from Dover in August, September and October, offering the chance to take in the vistas and volcanoes of the Azores and Madeira, sail into the heart of the Norwegian fjords and explore three Scandinavian cities on a six-night break.

The eight-night ‘Scenic Isles and Lochs of Scotland’ cruise will be Bolette’s first cruise from Dover in 2022, where guests can enjoy a scenic sailing of the picturesque 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, who will offer the chance to cross into the Arctic Circle in search of the Northern Lights, and delve into the rich history of culture of the Adriatic and Mediterranean on a 28-day voyage around Greece and the Adriatic, among other highlights.

Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, 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. 

“Of course, whether you join Bolette or Balmoral, you will enjoy the friendly and personal service for which we are at Fred. Olsen are renowned.”
