Fred Olsen has welcomed the first of two new ships to its fleet.
Borealis arrived in Rosyth on Friday afternoon (4 September). It will be joined by Bolette in mid-September.
Fred Olsen announced last month Bolette and Borealis will take over from Boudicca and Black Watch, which are being retired.
Itineraries for the two former HAL ships, which previously sailed as Amsterdam and Rotterdam and were acquired by Fred Olsen in July, will go on sale next week – Bolette’s from 9am on Monday (7 September) and Borealis’s on Tuesday (8 September).
“It is great to see the first of our two new ships, Borealis, alongside next to the rest of our fleet," said Fred Olsen Cruise Lines managing director Peter Deer.
“We can now begin our rebranding work to add those trademark Fred Olsen touches to the interior and exterior of the vessel, including our famous red funnels.
“This is an important milestone for us and marks the start of a new future for our company.”
Bolette’s itineraries include those previously scheduled for Boudicca, plus a number of brand new sailings, while Borealis will sail Black Watch’s itineraries and a selection of new cruises.
