An escape to warmer climes for chances to soak up the festive delights of Spanish cities makes for a wonderfully rewarding pre-Christmas break.[ReadMoreMob] At each city, you’ll get to explore streets and squares adorned with lights and decorations, explore festive markets, and feel the buzz of excitement as the locals get ready for the big day. Vigo will be a particular highlight; around ten million twinkling LEDs make up one of the world’s largest Christmas light displays here, and you’ll get to see the city in its illuminated splendour.

There’s time to seek-out historical, architectural and cultural highlights too. At the Galician gems of Vigo and La Coruña, Borealis docks within a mile of the city centres, making for easier discoveries of their centuries-old churches, cathedrals and monuments such as La Coruña’s UNESCO-listed Torre de Hercules. Getxo is an excellent starting point from which you can take in the highlights of nearby Bilbao, including the Guggenheim Bilbao, a modern architectural masterpiece. Gijon meanwhile is your gateway to medieval Oviedo, where you can sample authentic Asturian ciders and cheese. 

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.
