Experience the beauty, history and unique charm of Italy’s Amalfi Coast, and sample local flavours such as sharp Limoncello too, as you sail this beautiful region and visit its clifftop-perched towns. Spend time in Amalfi Town, wandering its ancient narrow streets and admiring the fine architecture on display, from the Arab-Romanesque style Cattedrale di Sant’Andrea to the Moorish-style Cloister of Paradise; or perhaps take a trip to nearby Atrani Town to relax on the quiet little beach. In Sorrento, see sights such as St. Francis Monastery and the Basilica di Sant’Antonino as you explore, and catch views of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Sorrento is the ideal starting point for tours to the UNESCO-listed towns of Herculaneum and Pompei, famously destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD79, too.[ReadMore]

Where the Amalfi Coast and Cilento National Park meet, you’ll also visit Salerno. With its medieval churches, castles and terraced gardens, the town offers an insight into the region’s rich Roman heritage. What’s more, as you arrive at and depart from each destination on the Amalfi Coast, you’ll take in unspoilt views of its rugged cliffs, peaks and pretty beaches. Away from Amalfi, a stop at Civitavecchia is a chance to visit Rome, take in its ancient sites such as the Forum and Palatine Hill, and even go ‘behind the scenes’ at the Colosseum, a modern Wonder of the World, for an in-depth look into why it’s such a symbol of the Roman reign. Visiting Cagliari will be an undoubted highlight too; you’ll dock close to the centre of Sardinia’s capital and be perfectly placed to go in search of lesser known, but important, Roman sites, such as ancient Nora and the Temple of Antas.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.

Borealis, like her sister ship Bolette, has capacity for less than 1,400 guests but is larger in overall size than the other vessels in the Fred. Olsen fleet. This means when you come on board for a memorable cruise holiday, to relax and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant public areas, lounges, bars and dining venues, you have even more space in which to do so.

With its warm, welcoming atmosphere and timeless style, and classic open deck spaces providing a place to fully immerse yourself in the magic of ocean cruising, Borealis is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
