The Olsen Way Highlights

150 years after the publication of the famous book 'Around the World in 80 Days', join us as we set out to repeat the feat. Our itinerary planners have timed this epic journey so that we reach Japan just as the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, while our visit to Egypt coincides with the 100th anniversary of the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Feel the buzz of Mumbai, perhaps while sampling the busy daily life of local Dabbawalas. There is also a chance to visit the iconic Taj Mahal. Impressive cityscapes await in Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

Cherry Blossom in Japan

Discover Japan in Cherry Blossom season


Your voyage has been timed perfectly to coincide with the seasonal Cherry Blossom in bloom. The Cherry Blossom tree, known as 'Sakura', is one of Japan's most iconic symbols, and is often regarded as the unofficial national flower.

Panama Canal

Cruising the man-made marvel: the Panama Canal


An immense complex of locks, dams, artificial lakes and channels, it stretches around 44 nautical miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, shortening voyages which would previously needed to have sailed round Cape Horn, by around 8,000 nautical miles. Join us out on deck as we sail through the Panama Canal. As Borealis traverses the waterway’s locks, lakes and long-span bridges, enjoy a detailed commentary and discover more about this man-made channel and the ships that use it to cross the South American continent.

Hawaii Volcanoes national park

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park


Experience some of nature’s most awe-inspiring wonders at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Located 45 miles southwest of Hilo, the park is home to two volcanoes including Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes on earth. The chance to witness the primal process of creation and destruction makes it one of the most popular visitor attractions in Hawaii and a sacred place. The extraordinary natural diversity of the park was recognized in 1980 when it was named a World Biosphere Site by UNESCO and in 1987 when the park was honored as a World Heritage Site.
