Enjoy some well-earned time away on a long awaited escape from it all, as we return to the water and get back to doing what we love – experiencing the relaxation and exploration of cruising. Short and sweet, this sailing is the perfect break, a chance to relax, breathe in the fresh sea air and delight in the beauty of Scotland and the Faroe Islands, all in the space, comfort and warm atmosphere of a smaller ship. What’s more, there’s the additional excitement of getting to join one of the first Fred. Olsen cruises on our beautiful new ship, Borealis.

On this journey, you’ll get to revel in views of scenic landscapes and natural wonders from your smaller ship. As you sail the waters surrounding Scotland’s Orkney and Shetland islands, the dramatic Needle and Old Man of Hoy sea stacks will come into view, while cruising around the rugged Faroe Islands makes for a day packed with highlights. Marvel at Cape Enniberg, North Europe’s second highest peak; divert into waterways flanked by craggy green valleys; see the waterfalls and mountains of Gásadalur – the Faroes’ most photographed place; and more. Observe birds such as puffins and fulmars in their natural habitat too, as Borealis glides by the unspoilt RSPB sites of Marwick Head and Sumburgh Head, the Vestmanna Cliffs and rugged Mykines Island. Wildlife experts from ORCA will be on board to help you look out for seabirds, seals and even whales.  

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.
