The Bolero

The m/v Bolero was built in 1968 in Bremerhaven. Compared to other more modern cruise ships, the Bolero is a bit small and showing its age. However, in spite of its size and age, the Bolero is still a fun experience. There are all the usual things you’d expect from a cruise: Entertainment, shops, sun bathing, excursions at each stop, and lots of food.

For the winter 2001 season, the Bolero hosted charter groups from Canada and France. As a result, the two official languages on board were English and French.
