Experience Spain at its quintessential best, as Borealis takes you on a journey to discover the famous sights and cultural delights of beautiful coastal cities and Mediterranean islands. When it comes to Spanish highlights, it doesn’t get much more iconic than Barcelona; you’re sure to be captivated by Catalonia’s capital, as you stroll Las Ramblas and see the architectural works of Gaudi, such as Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell and Casa Batllo. You also get to feel the history of Valencia amongst its old quarter, and learn about – and taste – Paella, while you’ll have a few hours to explore La Coruña, famed for its maritime heritage and historic monuments such as Torre de Hercules.[ReadMore]

During visits to two of the sunlit region’s finest cities, experience Andalusia’s authenticity to the full; see the expressive art of Pablo Picasso in his home city of Malaga, from where you could also opt to tour to the magnificent Alhambra Palace, and discover the ancient treasures of Cádiz. Discover sights such as Torre Tavira and the 18th century cathedral, as well as cafés and restaurants serving traditional tapas, and even learn about Andalusia's passion for flamenco dancing too. Two gorgeous Balearic Islands await you too; at Mallorca and Menorca, you’ll discover an abundance of fascinating historical and architectural sites too, such as Palma’s Santa Maria Cathedral, as well as golden beaches that are sure to tempt if you’d prefer relaxation over exploration.

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.

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

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.
