New Fred. Olsen ships to sail spring 2021, Balmoral even sooner

Fred. Olsen's fleet is currently in lay up in Babcock’s Rosyth Facilities, Scotland
New Fred. Olsen ships Bolette and Borealis - which are to take over the itineraries for Boudicca and Black Watch, respectively - will begin operating in March and April next year, together with the company’s existing ship, Braemar.

Plans are underway for Balmoral to sail sooner; an announcement on its return to water date is expected in the coming weeks. 

‘We are so pleased to be able to share our “back in the water” plans with our guests. When they join us back on board, they will do so aboard a refreshed fleet’, comments Peter Deer, managing director of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

The two new ships will move to Babcock’s Rosyth Facilities, Scotland in early September where the Fred. Olsen fleet is in lay-up.
