Perfect for first time cruisers, as well as regular guests looking for a relaxing short break, this journey from Liverpool to Southampton makes for a short, yet fulfilling taste of smaller ship cruising with Fred. Olsen. While there are no exotic destinations on your itinerary, your time away will be memorable and rewarding from the moment you board.[ReadMore]

Sumptuous dining, from perfectly cooked breakfasts to fine five-course dinners; fantastic evening entertainment; the company of like-minded guests; and personal, attentive service – you’ll experience it all. You could enjoy a traditional afternoon tea, accompanied by spectacular sea views; or even treat yourself, relax and unwind at the spa. And, of course there’s time to feel the sea breeze on your skin, watch the world drift by and see the stars out on deck, and simply delight in the experience of ocean cruising.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.

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.
