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. [ReadMore]

Impressive cityscapes await in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. In Japan, you can also experience a traditional tea ceremony, be entertained by Geishas and delve into Samurai heritage.

In Hawaii, you can witness the active Kilauea Volcano and discover the island state’s unique cultural traditions, while a day in San Francisco brings the likes of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge within your reach.



New On Board Signature Experiences

We are extremely excited to be following in the footsteps of fictional explorer Phileas Fogg as we sail Around the World in 80 Days, visiting some of the most beautiful destinations on Earth. To make your experience even more enriching, our Journey Planners have designed a unique programme of Signature Experiences which will allow you to discover real insights about the culture and nature of the places we are visiting, so you can arrive in each destination fully prepared to get the most out of your visit.

Our Journey Planners have carefully curated a programme of events with special guest speakers.

Our Scenic Discoveries allow you to enjoy seeing the world from the unique perspective of our ship.

As we explore the World, you'll have the chance to sample treats of the regions we visit.

There’s very little in the natural world more beautiful than a clear night sky, sunrise or sunset seen from the sea.

Find out what it takes to run a cruise ship and what life is like for those who call Borealis home.

As well as our signature experiences, we have a host of other activities for you to enjoy whilst you are on-board.

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.
