You’re in for an unforgettable adventure, as you go in search of the wonders and wildlife of Iceland and the Faroe Islands.[ReadMoreMob] From Reykjavik, journey to witness the natural power of the Gullfoss Waterfall and gushing Geysir hot springs; and see the Godadoss ‘Waterfall of the Gods’ and tranquil Lake Mývatn on tour from Akureyri, or go whale watching in the northern waters to look out for humpback and minke whales, dolphins and porpoises.

Savour the rugged scenes of Seyðisfjörður, and experience scenic cruising by the coastal Hornstrandir cliffs, jagged rock faces that are home to the Elf King and Queen, the dragon tail-like peaks of Drangaskord and Borgarfjordur Eystri, which – according to local folklore – is home to a large population of elves. Time spent sailing in Faroese will be unforgettable too; behold the sight of the imposing Vestmanna and Gasadalur cliffs, and of dramatic isles and sea stacks. Ashore, in Klaksvik and Tórshavn, you can learn of the Faroe’s historic links to the Vikings, and of course get a feel for what daily life is like now in this unique island country.

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.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.
