With Borealis as your guide, you’ll experience a wonderful snapshot of Scotland’s splendid summertime scenery. Your short, but invigorating discovery of enchanting waterways and remote islands begins with memorable scenic cruising, time to relax on board your smaller ship, see the 13th century Duart Castle, admire the Sound of Mull’s rolling landscapes, marvel at the intriguing Dutchman’s Cap and hear the echo of Atlantic Ocean waves crashing against Fingal’s Cave’s remarkable basalt columns.[ReadMoreMob]

After whetting your appetite, Borealis will then call at two charming destinations on consecutive days, for opportunities to step ashore and uncover many more of Scotland’s greatest and most famous historic sites and scenic delights. A stop at Kirkwall will allow you time to take in some of the Orkney Island’s incredible Neolithic treasures, such as the UNESCO-listed village of Skara Brae; and in the picturesque Shetlands, Lerwick is your starting point for seeking out native wildlife such as iconic Shetland ponies.

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.
