Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has announced three new shorter itineraries aboard the Bolette, as part of its inaugural 106-night world voyage starting in January 2025.

On January 6th, guests can depart from Southampton for a 56-night "Exploring South America and the Pacific Islands" cruise. This journey will feature highlights such as the stunning landscapes of Chile, the iconic Moai statues on Easter Island, and Robinson Crusoe Island.

Then, on March 3rd, the Bolette will set sail from Sydney on a 29-night "Australian and South African Discovery" voyage. Travelers will have the chance to see Australian wildlife and landmarks, including the Opera House, Uluru, and the Great Barrier Reef, before heading to Reunion Island and searching for the Big Five in South Africa.

Alternatively, guests can choose the 21-night "Scenic Vistas and Diverse Cultures of Africa" cruise, departing from Cape Town on April 1st. This itinerary includes exploring the Namib Desert, experiencing Senegalese folklore and tribal cultures, and visiting the subtropical island of Jamestown, St. Helena.

Martin Lister, head of itinerary product development at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines remarked, “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 journey to Sydney includes a post-cruise hotel stay before flying back to London Heathrow, while the cruise from Sydney to South Africa features a pre-cruise hotel stay. Additionally, guests have the option to sail from or back into Liverpool for an extra £200 per person.
