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. What's more, with the help and guidance of ORCA conservationists who'll join on board for your adventure, you may get to spot whales whilst out to sea, learn of their nature and play a part in assisting with their conservation. 

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.

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.
