Focused on a horticultural theme, this banl holiday weekend break provides opportunities to feast on the sights and scents of some of Europe’s finest floral exhibitions.[ReadMoreMob] The highlight is a visit to Amsterdam, timed for you to experience the seasonal delights of the Keukenhof Gardens, where millions of tulips burst into life with vibrant colour and fragrance in the spring, and the Floriade Horticulture Expo, a fascinating decennial celebration of ecology and botany. You’ll have a chance to stop by the early morning flower markets too, as well as other highlights such as the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring and Anne Frank House.

In France, from Honfleur you could take a tour to home of Claude Monet, and explore the beautiful grounds and gardens, a collage of colourful flora, lush green trees, lily ponds and ivy-crawled buildings that inspired some of the legendary artist’s most famous works. Alternatively, opt to explore Honfleur’s centuries-old streets, sample the charm of daily life here and delve into the maritime history. There’s also a visit to Belgium; Zeebrugge is your gateway to Brussels, where there are plenty of colourful gardens to discover amongst the city’s many sights and attractions too.

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.
