Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ Bolette will embark on her maiden around-the-world voyage in 2025.

As part of the ‘Voyage of Exploration Around the World’, Bolette will visit beautiful destinations, including Brazil, Chile, French Polynesia, Australia and South Africa among many others.

The epic 106-night voyage includes visits to some of the southern hemisphere’s iconic sites, such as Sydney’s Harbour and Opera House, Moai statues on Easter Island, and South Africa’s Table Mountain and Signal Hill.

Martin Lister, Head of Itinerary Planning and Destination Experience at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“This extra special voyage for Bolette’s first world cruise has been hand-crafted by our team of Journey Planners to enable our guests to sail in the wake of famous historical explorers and will follow a similar route to the first world circumnavigation by Magellan and Elcano in 1519.

“It will also cruise the south coast of Australia as British navigator Matthew Flinders did in 1801 and will call into places visited by the likes of Captain James Cook and Alexander Selkirk – the Scottish sailor who was the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe novel.

“Guests will be able to witness some of the world’s most impressive vistas, experience diverse culture and encounter wildlife as well as explore some of the lesser known and less frequently visited gems like Robinson Crusoe Island.”

Highlights on the South American leg of the adventure include iconic landmarks such as Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil, Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Chilean Fjords.

They will experience Latin American culture with tango in Argentina and encounter wildlife including Magellan penguins, set sail for Bora Bora and Tonga, and see the Blue Mountains in Australia.

The final leg of the journey will see guests enjoy Africa and the Indian Ocean, with the chance to seek out the Big Five in South Africa and reach the remote island of St Helena in the South Atlantic.

Guests can enjoy up to £600 per person to spend on board or free door-to-door transfers covering up to 250 mainland miles from the port.

Bolette’s 106-night T2502 ‘A Voyage of Exploration Around the World’ cruise, departs from Southampton on 6th January 2025. Prices start from £12,499 per person.
