With Borealis taking you to a trio of attraction-packed destinations, including the ‘garden island’ of Madeira, you’ll get to experience the culture, flavours and beauty of Portugal.[ReadMoreMob] The overnight stay in Funchal is the undoubted highlight of this itinerary; you’ve ample time to see and smell the variety of Madeira’s colourful,  fragrant flora amongst the island’s botanical gardens and lush levada walking trails, all while enjoying the soothing warm weather. You could take the weight off and sip sweet Madeiran wines in Funchal’s friendly bars too.

You’ve also time in Lisbon to discover the many sights and highlights of Portuguese capital; around the city you’ll find many UNESCO-listed landmarks and monuments symbolising its maritime history, such Jerónimos Monastery and Tower de Belem. Sample authentic local flavours here too – visit Pasteis de Belém bakery to enjoy one of the famous pastel de nata tarts. Finally, a visit to Leixoes presents an opportunity to tour to nearby Oporto; take the short trip to the UNESCO-listed second city and you’ll be rewarded by discoveries of delights such as the historic Ribeira District, views of the picturesque Douro River and famous cellars storing port wines produced in the heart of the city.

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.
