Showcasing a plethora of Irish highlights through visits to destinations found north and south of the Emerald Isle's border, this five-night break will create lasting memories. You can sample iconic tipples, discover historic treasures and take in many must-see attractions during time ashore, while in typical Fred. Olsen there’s a day of unforgettable scenic cruising to experience too.

In between your exploration of Ireland’s capitals, a day-long diversion to breathtaking Scottish Hebrides includes a scenic navigation of the Sound of Mull, passing by the 13th century Duart Castle, as well as a sail by the remarkable basalt columns of Fingal’s Cave. In Northern Ireland’s attraction-packed capital, Belfast, highlights include Titanic Belfast, where fascinating exhibits detail the city’s connections to the infamous ocean liner, Titanic; the historic steamship SS Nomadic; and the Renaissance-style City Hall. Belfast is also your gateway to the fascinating Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site. Taking a tour to see the geological wonders of Giant’s Causeway in all their glory is an unforgettable way end to your time in Ireland.

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.

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.

Service with a smile
