Your cruise at a glance

Hand-crafted highlights

As a family run business, we are free to do things a little differently, and our Mystery Cruise is a great example of that; designed to allow you to step into the shoes of explorers, officers, navigators and seafarers, giving you a sense of what it must have felt like to sail the high seas in search of new lands. Your itinerary is kep a secret - with only our Journey Planners knowing the full details. An atmosphere of anticipation will begin the moment you board Borealis, building as your journey progresses, with everyone having their theory as to which port will be appearing on the horizon next. Every destination will be kept a secret until the last possible moment, so you won’t know where you’re going until you arrive. The atmosphere on board is friendly, sociable and lots of fun. You'll have the opportunity on this cruise to discover more about the various planets and galaxies in the universe with experts from Go Stargazing, who will hold informal sessions out on the decks of Borealis

Highlights

Go Stargazing

Go Stargazing

Your Mystery Cruise will be enhanced even further with the accompaniement of a team of experts from Go Stargazing, who will be on board to share their vast knowledge of astronomy and the skies above us. The team will consist of professional and amateur astronomers who are keen to help guests discover different planets, and see the many constellations in our universe. As there is a minimum amount of light pollution when Borealis is at sea, the night sky viewed from the middle of the ocean is magnificently beautiful, with a vast expanse of stars glittering brightly in the darkness.
