This cruise is crafted to showcase the summertime splendour of Norway’s waterways and their natural wonders to the fore.[ReadMoreMob] On board Borealis, feel an uncanny sense of calm as you sail serenely amongst some of the fjordland’s most beautiful scenery. You’ll journey into Maurangerfjord and witness the tumbling waters of Fureberg Waterfall; marvel at Nordfjord, North Europe’s tallest sea cliff, and the verdant landscapes of Hardangerfjord; and cruise between the imposing cliffs and mountains of Naeroyfjord.

When you get to step ashore, memorable experiences await you there too. From Olden, see the glistening ice of the Briksdal Glacier on tour, or perhaps ride the Loen Skylift for panoramic views of Nordfjord. At Flam, you could ride the famous Flambana Railway into the surrounding mountains, to see rock formations and waterfalls up-close. Perhaps go kayaking on the glassy waters of Naeroyfjord, to get a real sense of the height and might of the fjord’s imposing peaks and rocks. You also visit Molde, where you could begin your time in Norway with a ride on the picturesque Rauma Railway or a journey along the Atlantic Road.

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.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.
