As Borealis takes you on a journey along England’s south coast, sailing west to east, you’ll discover some of Britain’s most scenic and most iconic sights. On Cornwall’s picturesque shores, Falmouth is your gateway to the beautiful Lizard Peninsula and the famous Eden Project; while in Dorset, the rugged landscapes of the Jurassic Coast are yours to explore from Portland. A charming harbour, beaches and historic sites, such as Pendennis Castle, await discovery in Falmouth too.[ReadMore]

In Essex, Harwich is your starting point for taking in some of East Anglia’s revered attractions, from the picturesque countryside of Flatford Mill – the inspiration for John Constable’s most-loved painting – to the fortifications and elegant grounds of Colchester Castle. Back along the south coast, a visit to Portsmouth is a chance to see the Mary Rose, Southsea Castle and enjoy views across the Solent towards the Isle of Wight from the Spinnaker Tower. Finally, before returning to Liverpool, there’s a visit to Belfast to take in the highlights of Northern Ireland’s attraction-packed capital.

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.
