This in-depth exploration of some of Italy’s most breathtaking regions presents you with engrossing culture, spectacular scenery and remarkable history. You’ll enjoy authentic experiences galore on the impossibly beautiful Amalfi Coast, Tuscany and the sumptuous Italian Riviera as Borealis sails between a collection of enchanting towns and cities.[ReadMoreMob]

Your exploration of the Amalfi Coast will be something to remember forever. Two enchanting towns, set to a backdrop of the region’s spectacular coastal scenery, await you; dazzling Amalfi town, with its quintessential scenes of whitewash villas sprinkled over a mountainside, vivacious piazzas and promises famous limoncello liqueur, and Sorrento, boasting postcard-perfect views of legendary Mount Vesuvius and Naples. In Tuscany, you can tour from Livorno to Pisa for marvel at the iconic Leaning Tower and 11th century Duomo; or Florence, to lose yourself in the romance of the city’s towers, spires and rolling Tuscan hills. Meanwhile, on the Italian Riviera, you’re sure to be charmed by the upmarket, pocket-sized fishing village of Portofino and Genoa, where grand palaces and piazzas highlight this city’s historic importance.[ReadMoreDesk]

Elsewhere, Borealis' inspirational Italian adventure takes you to the glorious shores of Sicily, for a rare opportunity to explore lesser-known Milazzo, and to the Sardinian ‘happy city’ of Olbia, to wander its handsome historic centre and step back in time amongst an abundance of centuries-old structures and archaeological sites. A call at Civitavecchia, gateway to mighty Rome, offers you a chance to discover the seemingly endless highlights of Italy’s incredible capital city; from the magnificent Colosseum and the Roman Forum, to the Vatican and St Peter’s Basilica. There’s also a visit to Salerno, where medieval churches, castles and terraced gardens, offer an authentic insight into the rich Roman heritage of Italy’s stunning south.

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.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Service with a smile
