This itinerary has been planned to include discoveries of many quintessentially Irish sights and experiences, all packed into a short, yet fulfilling cruise escape.[ReadMoreMob] You’ll begin your taste of Ireland in Cobh, the first of two stops south of the Irish border; perhaps explore the colourful harbour, overlooked by St Colman’s Cathedral, and visit the Titanic Museum to learn of the town’s links to the infamous, ill-fated ocean liner. Or, if you wish to tick kissing the Blarney Stone of your ‘must-do’ list, you can do so on a tour to Blarney Castle.

A full day in Dublin is ample time to seek out the abundant attractions of the Republic of Ireland’s vibrant capital. Walking is a great way to see the city’s famous sights, including St Patrick’s Cathedral, Ireland’s largest church, Dublin Castle and Trinity College. Stop by the Temple Bar district for some proper ‘craic’, and visit the Guinness Storehouse to taste and learn about the history of the ‘black stuff’. A visit to Belfast is a chance to explore the connection between Titanic and Northern Ireland’s capital – a city entrenched in centuries of maritime history – too, while you you could also tour to UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway, and study this wonder’s remarkable basalt columns up-close.

  • Experience the Guinness factory in Dublin

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.
