Sailing the Scottish lochs on Fred. Olsen’s smaller ships is the best way to experience their beauty and tranquillity, and as you explore this astonishing part of the world you’ll create memories that last a lifetime. From Borealis, witness the majesty of mighty Ben Nevis – Britain’s highest mountain – while cruising Loch Linnhe; the twin-topped ridge of Beinn Ghobhlach, towering over the pretty shores of Little Loch Broom; and the Loch Eriboll’s unspoilt highland scenery. You’ll also see the intriguing Dutchman’s Cap and hear the echo of Atlantic Ocean waves crashing against Fingal’s Cave’s remarkable basalt columns.[ReadMoreMob]

Throughout your journey, memorable experiences await you ashore too. Your call into Fort William could coincide with the annual Lochaber Highland Games, and you may have the chance to locals during the celebrations of traditional highland competition, dancing and entertainment. Meanwhile, there are many famous sites of rich history and ancient legends to uncover. You could visit the 18th century Inveraray Castle from Tarbert, situated in beautiful Loch Fyne; take in Orkney’s UNESCO-listed Neolithic treasures on tour from Kirkwall; and explore the pretty grounds of Cawdor Castle on tour from Invergordon. You’ve also a chance to delight in the gorgeous, rugged scenery of the Shetlands, famed for rugged landscapes and charming wildlife.

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.
