Fred. Olsen Unveils 3 More Segments as part of 2025 World Cruise

Fred. Olsen Bolette

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines unveiled three new shorter sailings onboard the Bolette, as part of the ship’s maiden 106-night world voyage, sailing in January 2025, according to a statement.

On January 6 from Southampton, guests can embark on a 56-night “Exploring South America and the Pacific Islands” journey. Highlights include exploring the landscapes of Chile, the Moai statues on Easter Island and the Robinson Crusoe Island.

On March 3, the Bolette will depart on a 29-night “Australian and South African Discovery” cruise from Sydney, where travelers can encounter wildlife and explore sites such as the Opera House, Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia before reaching Reunion Island and searching for the Big Five in South Africa.

Alternatively, the 21-night “Scenic Vistas and Diverse Cultures of Africa” itinerary, departing from Cape Town on April 1, will take guests to explore the landscapes of the Namib Desert, experience Senegalese folklore and tribal cultures and visit the subtropical island of Jamestown, St Helena.

Martin Lister, head of itinerary product development at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “Our 2025 World Cruise has already proven popular, and there are some incredible opportunities to be had as Bolette sails to gems across the globe.

“These shorter sailings will enable even more of our guests to share these experiences, with every port offering an incredible insight into the culture, history, art or the chance to seek out native wildlife such as the Magellanic Penguins in Chile, quokkas in Australia and the Big Five in South Africa.

“Guests will be able to make the most of their time with us, whether it’s to explore ports of call further with our immersive shore tours or to relax on board as our smaller-sized ship enjoys scenic sailings between destinations.”

The sailing to Sydney includes a post-cruise hotel stay before flying back to London Heathrow, while the journey from Sydney to South Africa includes a pre-cruise hotel stay.

Also available are options to sail from or back into Liverpool for an additional £200 per person.
