Amongst scenes of spectacular landscapes and waterways, you can closer to the wonders and wildlife of Iceland’s rugged lands than you ever imagined. Reykjavik is your gateway to uncovering a trove of astonishing natural treasures – tour the Golden Circle to be awe-struck by the sight of gushing Geysir hot springs, the mighty Gullfoss ‘Golden Waterfall’ and UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park; or perhaps visit the famous Blue Lagoon, to unwind in the soothing warmth of geothermal baths.[ReadMoreMob]

At Ísafjörður, you can embark on an exhilarating fjord kayaking adventure and immerse yourself in the tranquillity and natural beauty of the Westfjords, or take a boat tour to Vigur Island to encounter charming native puffins. For an experience of a lifetime, join a whale watching tour from Akureyri and go in search of whales, dolphins and porpoises in their unspoilt, natural habitat. You could take in the glorious Godafoss ‘waterfall of the gods’ and the bird haven of Lake Mývatn on tour too. At remote Seyðisfjörður, situated on a breathtaking waterway of the same name, you’ll revel in the sight and sounds of glorious glaciers, towering mountains and tumbling waterfalls.

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
