Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has announced its new summer programme for 2025 with the early release of two Fred Olsen cruises venturing to warmer climes.

In June, Borealis will sail along the Dalmatian coast, to the fjord-like Bay of Kotor in Montenegro and sail past the Makarska Riviera in Croatia.

Other ports of call will include Split where guests can see the cascading waterfalls of Krka and visit Diocletian’s Palace and Dubrovnik to explore the ancient city walls.

In September 2025, Bolette will be visiting a string of charming towns perched on coastal cliffs, including the emerging gem of Cinque Terre, Corsica’s Bonifacio and picturesque Portofino.

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

“Both of these sailings have hand-crafted itineraries to allow our guests to really immerse themselves in the culture and history of the destinations they are visiting.

“With the Scenic Gems of the Dalmatian Coast, guests will be met with rugged mountains, idyllic bays and glistening islands and have the chance to experience the region’s way of life by eating prosciutto, sipping Rakija, crafting wood and lace and dancing the Lindo and Oro.

“And on Bolette, guests can uncover Cinque Terre’s rich maritime history, particularly in Genoa, home to ancient city walls and the birthplace of explorer Christopher Columbus.

“All while gaining insight into the local culture and cuisine, from indulging in focaccia, Genoese pesto and fresh seafood in its place of origin, to exploring Cinque Terre, known for its olive growing and winemaking.”

The two new cruises on Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ fleet of smaller-sized ships are available to book for Oceans Members from 15th November and on general sale from 17th November.

Borealis’ 22-night S2516 ‘Scenic Gems of the Dalmatian Coast’ cruise, departing from Dover on 5th June 2025. Prices start from £3,499 per person.

Bolette’s 16-night T2523 ‘Italy’s Scenic Riviera with Charming Cinque Terre’ cruise, departing from Liverpool on 24th September 2025. Prices start from £2,699 per person.

Guests can also enjoy their choice of up to £350 per person to spend on board, or free door-to-door transfers for those travelling to the port from mainland UK for up to 250 miles.

These two sailings come ahead of the launch of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ full 2025/26 schedule which is set to be released in March.
