Enjoy a wonderful Bank Holiday break as you, with Borealis as your guide, experience a snapshot of Scotland’s splendid summertime beauty. Your short, but invigorating discovery of enchanting waterways and remote islands includes hours of memorable scenic cruising, time to relax on board your smaller ship and revel in Scottish scenery. See the 13th century Duart Castle, against the backdrop of the Sound of Mull’s rolling landscapes; take in the wild scenes of Loch Hourn and the Small Isles; marvel at the intriguing Dutchman’s Cap; and hear the echo of Atlantic Ocean waves crashing against Fingal’s Cave’s remarkable basalt columns.[ReadMore]

In between these unforgettable scenic cruising experiences, you visit two charming, remote destinations on consecutive days too, for opportunities to step ashore and uncover many more of Scotland’s greatest and most famous historic sites and scenic delights. Both at Orkney and on the Isle of Skye, a number of centuries-old highlights await; a stop at Kirkwall will allow you time to take in Neolithic treasures, such as the UNESCO-listed village of Skara Brae, while Portree is your gateway to the impressive castles of Dunvegan and Eilean Donan. For an up-close look at Scotland’s rugged natural beauty at its most dramatic, perhaps tour to Trotternish Ridge and see imposing rock formations such as the Old Man of Storr.

Joining you on your cruise to Scotland will be representatives from ORCA, who will help you spot whales, dolphins and other sea life, and record their vital data for wildlife hotspots to visit in the future.

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.
