    Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has unveiled the first sailings in its 2025 summer programme with the early release of two itineraries to warmer climates.

    In June, Borealis will take guests on an enchanting journey along the Dalmatian Coast where expert journey planners have hand-crafted a package to include cruising along the fjord-like bay of Kotor in Montenegro and sailing past the Makarska Riviera in Croatia.

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

    From September, Bolette will visit a string of charming towns perched atop coastal cliffs in Cinque Terre or the picturesque favourite, Portofino.

    “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,” head of itinerary planning, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, Martin Lister, said.

    “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.”

    Details of the two new cruises on FredOlsen Cruise Lines’ fleet of smaller-sized ships, which are available to book for Oceans Members from 15th November and on general sale from 17th November can be found HERE.
