This seven-night circumnavigation of Ireland serves up a full-flavoured taste of the Emerald Isle, showcasing authentic and iconic highlights throughout. Visiting five wonderfully welcoming and rewarding destinations, you’re in for a real treat, with chances to sample famous tipples, uncover fascinating history, take in must-see attractions and more.

Beginning your enriching journey south of the Irish border, the delights of Dun Laoghaire await your discovery.

Continuing the theme of relaxation, breathe in the heady floral scents of the People's Park and wander around the perfectly manicured lawns, before visiting the weekend market of art collections and delicious local produce. Then there’s Cobh, a joy to explore with its brightly coloured harbour and impressive cathedral. Cobh is where many of the Titanic’s passengers embarked on her fateful voyage and the fantastic Titanic Experience is a must-visit to explore the town’s links to the ill-fated ocean liner.

Along the south-west coast, Borealis will sail picturesque bays and by the magnificent metamorphic mountains of Connacht and Ulster, to present you with a snapshot of some of Ireland’s most spectacular scenic regions, before arriving at Galway. This charming city boasts centuries of fascinating history; exploring the remnants of the medieval town here will reveal plenty of interesting historical sites, such as the Spanish Arch. Then it’s on to Killybegs, a picturesque town situated within the valleys and rolling hills of the County Donegal’s beautiful Wild Atlantic Way. Here a visit to the stunning Bluestack Mountains is highly recommended, though you may opt to relax at Fintragh Bay, one of Ireland’s best beaches. Finally, a visit to Belfast, Northern Ireland’s attraction-packed capital offers you the chance to explore the city’s legendary connection to Titanic at the Titanic Belfast exhibition; visit the historic steamship SS Nomadic; and marvel at the Renaissance-style City Hall. Belfast is also your gateway to the incredible geological wonders of the Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site.

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
