The UK-based company Fred Olsen Cruise Lines is returning to Dover (England UK) this month with a selection of late summer voyages to destinations in Norway, Spain, France, and the Adriatic.

Fred Olsen's Bolette ship is scheduled to sail from Dover in August, September and October, offering roundtrips visiting Madeira/Funchal and the Azores, sail into the heart of Norway's fjords and exploring three Scandinavian port cities on a 6-night break.

The 8-night "Scenic Isles and Lochs of Scotland" itinerary will be MS Bolette’s first from Dover in 2022. Passengers can enjoy scenic cruising of the Sound of Mull, explore the remote Shetland and Orkney islands, and look out for wildlife (birds and whales) alongside marine wildlife charity ORCA.

From September through to November, in Dover is homeported the Balmoral ship, offering the chance to cross into the Arctic Circle in search of the Northern Lights on a 28-day voyage around Greece and the Adriatic.

Clare Ward, Director of Product & Customer Service at Fred. Olsen, said: they had offered roundtrips from Dover for many years, and were really pleased to be returning again this summer. 

“Our Journey Planners have hand-crafted these late summer sailings specially, taking advantage of the south-easterly location of the port to maximise the experiences on-board and ashore for our guests.

“This summer, guests will be able to enjoy a scenic sailing of the River Seine in a short four-night break to France, experience Sami culture in Arctic Norway in a journey to seek out the Northern Lights, or voyage to the Adriatic, with opportunities to explore the ancient sites of Dubrovnik, Kotor and Athens on a longer break."
