Be amongst the first guests to experience cruising on Borealis, and celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Fred. Olsen, on this very special six-night sailing. You’ll sense the excitement from the moment you board, and throughout your holiday. What’s more, you’re in for a rewarding discovery of beautiful, close-to-home islands and waterways too, taking in unforgettable destinations and scenic cruising regions. [ReadMoreMob]

Some of Scotland’s greatest sights and highlights await; north of the border, your journey includes ample opportunities to fully immerse yourself in the beauty and remoteness of picturesque lochs and archipelagos. Feel fresh, cool air on your skin and enjoy unspoilt tranquillity as you sail the still, glass-like waters of Loch Broom, where the towering peaks of Ben Mor Coigach and Beinn Ghobhlach come into view; through the highland [ReadMoreDesk]scenery of Loch Eriboll; and see the rolling hills of Loch Torridon. Ashore in the Shetlands, you could seek out native wildlife such as iconic Shetland Ponies, while your day in the Orkney’s affords time to uncover UNESCO-listed Neolithic treasures aplenty on tour from Kirkwall. En route to Scotland, there’s a visit to Northern Ireland too; enjoy ample time in Belfast to take in the capital’s highlights, including Titanic Belfast, the historic steamship SS Nomadic; and the Renaissance-style City Hall.

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
