Amsterdam arrives at Rosyth and is set to become Fred. Olsen’s Bolette

On 17 September 2020 Holland America’s cruise ship Amsterdam entered Rosyth through the gate to Babcock Rosyth’s basin having sailed under the Forth Bridges at low tide, due to the air draft, earlier in the day.

She joins her Holland America sister ship, Rotterdam, which entered the basin on 4 September, with the vessels due to become part of the newly revamped Fred. Olsen fleet.

Amsterdam is destined to become the new Olsen flagship, and is to be named Bolette, the name of Fred. Olsen Jr.’s great-great-grandmother, and a name carried by many other Olsen vessels have over the years.
