Exploring the ‘Emerald Isle’, taking in scenic and city highlights along the way, makes for a memorable discovery of Ireland’s beauty, history and culture, and a wonderfully rewarding bank holiday break. Sailing away from the main coastal routes, smaller ship Borealis takes you to uncover scenes found off the beaten track; see quintessentially Irish vistas of rolling valleys and craggy mountains within Lough Swilly, and the rugged, Atlantic Ocean-carved landscapes of Clare Island, the Inishkea Islands and Tory Island – the most remote, inhabited land in Ireland.[ReadMore]

During your time ashore, enjoy time to seek out the highlights of three fascinating cities. Cobh is famed for its brightly coloured harbour and impressive cathedral, and for its links to the infamous, ill-fated ocean liner, RMS Titanic, while a visit to Belfast is a chance to explore the connection between Titanic and Northern Ireland’s capital – a city entrenched in centuries of maritime history – too. On tour you could visit UNESCO-listed Giant's Causeway from Belfast, and study this wonder's remarkable basalt columns up-close, and from Cobh head to Blarney Castle to kiss the legendary Stone of Eloquence. Meanwhile charming Galway will provide a day of delights to enjoy, from delicious seafood to medieval history and dramatic west coast scenery.

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.
