Escape to France and Belgium on board Borealis and enjoy a break from the norm as you discover the sights and cultural delights of two fine cities.[ReadMoreMob] Zeebrugge is your gateway to Bruges, where amongst the many historical and architectural highlights of the city’s UNESCO-listed centre, including the Church of our Lady and the 13th century Belfry, there are many expert brewers and chocolatiers. As you explore, perhaps stop by a Belgian chocolate shop or two, grab a beer and take the weight off, and enjoy a taste of the delicious local treats.

You’ve a chance to sample authentic French flavours too; from Honfleur you can tour to a distillery to learn about and taste some of Normandy’s finest ciders and calvados, while within the city itself you’ll find an abundance of traditional cafés, restaurants and bars serving local wines, cuisine and camembert. In between your indulgences, take time to wander Honfleur’s charming streets and you’ll be rewarded with discoveries of the historic Vieux Bassin, ornate 15th and 16th century architecture and views of the beautiful fishing harbour.

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.
