Rural Canada is renowned for its wild, rugged beauty, and on this cruise you’ll get to experience all the natural wonder of the region, plus learn of its unique history and cultures too.[ReadMoreMob] After a sail across the Atlantic, you’re in for an unforgettable discovery of five different destinations over five days. Visiting St John’s makes for the perfect introduction to Canada; perhaps ramble amongst some of Newfoundland’s most picturesque coastal scenes and see Cape Spear lighthouse. Then it’s on to Nova Scotia and the city of Sydney, from where you could head into the highlands of Cape Breton and walk the famous Cabot Trail; or stroll the shores of the Bras D'Or Lake.

Halifax harbours centuries of fascinating history for you to delve into; particular historic highlights worth discovering are the 19th century Citadel National Historic Site, with its links to the British, and the Maritime Museum. Get a feel for the local culture, arts and culinary delights too, and even learn of Halifax’s connections to Titanic. For your last day in Nova Scotia, your smaller ship takes you to Louisburg, for a chance to find out about the history of battles between the French and English that influenced the city you see today, before finally its back to Newfoundland. Corner Brook is your gateway to the Bay of Islands – tour here to follow in the footsteps of Captain Cook, see dramatic panoramic vistas and the Old Man in the Mountain rock carving – and to the vibrant, lush-landscapes of Gros Morne National Park.

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.
