For the perfect Bank Holiday escape from it all, Borealis takes you all the way to Spain and back in just five nights. This short, yet rewarding break provides a welcome opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of ocean cruising with Fred. Olsen, with ample time for rest and relaxation on board, plus chances to explore ashore in two fantastic Spanish cities, all while spending less than a week away.

Your journey takes you to two of Spain’s finest regions, for a taste of their rich history and culture, authentic flavours and local way of life.[ReadMoreMob] You’ll visit stylish La Coruña, a Galician gem renowned for its impressive landmarks and historic sites; the Baroque-style Cornide Palace and ancient Torre de Hercules are among the unmissable attractions. Further afield, you could head to Santiago de Compostela – one of Christendom’s three global spiritual capitals – on a tour to marvel at the at the city’s simply spectacular cathedral. In the beautiful Basque Country, Getxo is your gateway to Bilbao. Tour to the regional capital for highlights aplenty; take in world-famous sights such as the iconic Guggenheim Museum and the 14th century gothic-style cathedral, and perhaps indulge yourself with local delights such as Basque pintxos and Rioja wines.  

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.
