Get ready for inspirational, immersive experiences, as small ship Borealis takes you on an unforgettable discovery of Morocco’s many marvels. From fascinating historic sites and magnificent mosques to iconic, medinas, souks and kasbahs, this is a discovery of diverse highlights, and an authentic taste of Moroccan culture.

A two-day stay in Casablanca would be a highlight of any itinerary, and you’re sure to look forward to your time in this iconic city.[ReadMoreMob] Make the most of your opportunity to uncover the many world-renowned sites; or perhaps tour to magical Marrakech for bustling souks, prestigious religious monuments and the famous Medina, alive with energetic markets, street food vendors, artists and all manner of performers. If you choose to stay in Casablanca, you could marvel at the sight of the majestic Hassan II Mosque, and enjoy flavoursome Tagine cuisine.[ReadMoreDesk]

Elsewhere, for your first experience of Morocco at its most authentic, a visit to Agadir is a chance to explore Souk El Had and try local flavours of mint tea, fruits and spices; and even learn about how Argan Oil is made, meeting the ladies who crush the nuts from endemic argan trees. Agadir is also your gateway to the Atlas Mountains; on tour, you could trek the foothills and witness some of Morocco’s most magnificent scenery. With a visit to Tangier, where a city of soaring minarets and domes, a legendary Kasbah – once the sultan's walled palace and gardens – and animated souks will make a lasting impression too, you’ll make a lifetime of memories to savour during your time in Morocco. If all that wasn’t enough, Borealis also takes you to Northern Ireland and Portugal to visit two capital cities rich with maritime history and heritage – Belfast and picturesque Lisbon.

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.
