With a blend of authentic cultures, traditional charms and fascinating history to uncover as you embrace and engage with local life in Cape Verde and Morocco, this cruise provides unique, unforgettable experiences throughout.[ReadMoreMob] You’re sure to be captivated by the African and Portuguese influenced architecture, music and dance, and the hustle and bustle of, the trio of Cape Verdean destinations on your itinerary. In each, the friendly locals will welcome you to sample their lifestyle; you could browse busy markets, shake your hips to ‘Funaná’ beats, and of course try the local produce, such as Grogue – the national drink. During your visit to Praia, you could also get a feel for Santiago’s history on a tour to UNESCO-listed Cidade Velha, a former slave trading post, while Mindelo is your gateway to discovering beautiful landscapes and volcanic wonders, such as Monte Verde. On Santo Antão, vibrant Porto Novo is a haven for relaxation, boasting beaches and a picturesque harbour, and overlooked by towering Topo de Coroa, offering panoramic scenic views from its peak.

After Cape Verde, visits to Agadir, Casablanca and Tangier throw a mix of Morocco’s modern delights and ancient treasures into the melting pot. The buzz of day-to-day life in these cities is something to behold as you explore bustling souks, charming streets and pretty squares, and in each, an abundance of attractions await your discovery. Undoubted highlights to seek-out include the ancient Kasbah of Agadir, and Casablanca’s magnificent Hassan II Mosque, famed for its 210-metre-high minaret. In Tangier, a morning call allows ample time soak up the city’s sights; or perhaps uncover UNESCO-listed Tétouan and its famous ancient medina on tour. Beyond the sites and highlights, you’ve even chances to learn to cook like the Berbers in Casablanca; tour to the imperial cities of Marrakech and Rabat; or venture off the beaten track and head into the Atlas Mountains. 

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.
