Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines unveil two new ships

Looking ahead to a brighter future.

Fred Olsen new ships

Posted on

16 Jul 2020

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has announced it will be introducing two new ships to its fleet. The ships, to be named Bolette and Borealis, have been purchased from Holland America Line. The acquisition of the ships will modernise and increase capacity across the fleet, a move that will ensure the cruise line returns to the water in a stronger position.

Fred. Olsen Junior, Chairman of Fred. Olsen Cruise lines, said “I am delighted. We have chosen these vessels as they will fit seamlessly into our existing fleet of small ships, each carrying under 1,500 guests, bringing with them new and large public areas whilst not compromising on our small ship experience.

“The naming of the vessels is important to us. Bolette and Borealis are both names of ships we have had in years gone by.

“This increase in our capacity demonstrates our confidence in the future. With over 170 years of seafaring history, we have sailed through many difficult periods. With these new additions to the fleet, we will come out of this current situation stronger than ever, ready to deliver the award-winning itineraries that we are famous for.”

Peter Deer, Managing Director, said “This is an exciting chapter in the history of our company, and I know that our loyal and returning guests will be looking forward to exploring our new ships as soon as they can.

“Of course, we also hope to attract new guests to Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines and we look forward to demonstrating the exceptional service that makes us the best UK cruise line for repeat business.”
