Borealis

Borealis cruising

Sister ship of our flagship Bolette, Borealis joined us 2020, and is perfectly suited for enjoying scenic cruising of the world's lesser-known waterways. From cruising past remarkable landscapes and historical sites to capturing the beauty of the natural world. 

Redecorated and refurbished when she joined our fleet  in order to meet the high standards of the Olsen family, Borealis features a wonderful series of lounges, bars, elegant restaurants and wide-open deck spaces, as well as 702 beautiful cabins and suites; perfectly suited to the Fred. Olsen style of cruising.

Enjoy one of our Signatures Experiences of Scenic Discoveries from the perfectly-appointed Observatory, where guests will be able to see outstanding natural scenery and iconic landmarks, accompanied by commentary from our on board teams; or sample delicious Treats of the Region in the Auditorium where our talented chefs will prepare dishes that are local to the exciting destinations you're visiting. Our friendly crew will be on hand throughout your cruise, providing the personal service they're known for.

On board all of our ships, we do our best to accommodate most dietary requests. So, vegetarian, vegan, low fat, low cholesterol, low salt, dairy-free, lactose-free, wheat-free and gluten-free food are all catered for.

We also kindly request that you make us aware of any special dietary requests at the time of booking or by calling our Guest Services Team on 0800 0355 145. We’ll do our best to source exact products, or provide certain foods, such as diabetic desserts. Guests with food allergies or intolerances will also have the opportunity to speak to the Maitre ’d or Executive Chef once on board to discuss any requirements. 

We can also provide a vegan option for our Traditional Afternoon Tea service, which is available on all sea days. Prices can be found on the link below.

Please note that we may not be able to source specific brands given our location or the availability at local ports. 

Our on board restaurants provide a wide range of delicious and freshly cooked meals, so we offer a selection of dining options throughout the day to suit you.

Breakfast:

Normally served between 7.30 and 10.30am in the main restaurants and casual dining venues.

Lunch:

Normally served between 12.00 and 2.00pm in the main restaurants and casual dining venues.

Afternoon Tea:

Each day, complimentary afternoon tea is served between 3.45 and 4.45pm in the buffet service restaurant, with sandwiches, savouries, scones and cakes, along with fresh tea and coffee.*

*Please note this is not the Tradtional Premium Afternoon Tea service, which is available on selected days in the Observatory for just £13 per person.

Dinner:

Please request either the first or second seating (6.15pm or 8.30pm) when you make your booking. You can also request your preferred table, but we can’t always guarantee this.

Your restaurant seating card will be in your room when you board, which confirms your table number and dining time. This will be your allocated table for the duration of your cruise.

Please note that evening dining times may vary on our One Night Cruises. 

Casual Dining:

A buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner will also be served in the Palms Café (Balmoral) The View and The Poolside (Bolette and Borealis). 

For those guests requiring a more casual dinner option, The View and Palms Cafés will be open from 6.30pm to 9.00pm. Dining at the Poolside (Bolette and Borealis) is available throughout the day between 10.00am and 7.00pm.

On some nights, we have themed dining evenings in the buffet restaurants. These evenings are often very popular so we recommend you book in advance to secure a table.

Speciality Dining: 

For an even more indulgent and memorable dining experience, each ship in the Fred. Olsen fleet offers speciality dining in an exclusive venue. Vasco and Colours & Tastes take inspiration from traditional Indian cuisine and modern Asian Fusion dining.

Our speciality dining venues are open from 6pm on the days advertised in The Daily Times. 

You can pre-book speciality dining via My Cruises from 13 weeks and up to 24 hours before departure, for £10pp. If you'd like to book once on board, speciality dining will be charged to your on board account at £15pp. 

Each of our ships feature a selection of stylish dining venues, all serving a range of indulgent, expertly-prepared dishes. At breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll always find delicious treats which will tempt your taste buds. And, as all food is included on your cruise, you can indulge as much or as little as you like.

Start the day with eggs made to order; a hearty full English, or a lighter breakfast from the buffet if you prefer. Lunchtime offers a select á la carte menu alongside a tempting buffet for you to indulge in up to three courses.

Experience evening dining just how it should be in the spacious restaurants on board, serving up a sumptuous five-course á la carte menu each evening. You can request a table size at the time you make your booking, although this cannot be guaranteed.

Alternatively you can opt to dine in our self-service restaurant on each vessel, for a more relaxed experience.

As each evening winds down, our buffet restaurants open for late-night snacks if you’re still feeling peckish. Of course, you can also order room service up until 11pm every day.

While the main restaurants are always popular, during your cruise you may be tempted to try something different for an evening or two. When you’re in the mood for something extra special, each ship in our fleet features speciality dining (a small supplement applies). Our Colours & Tastes or Vasco menus offer delicious Asian fusion or Indian cuisines. 

Don't forget to download our app, so that once on board you can see all the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.

Unlike some other cruise lines, we don't charge a small fortune at the bar. We want you to relax and enjoy your holiday, and we know that many of you prefer to have a drink in your hand while making the most of your time away.

You shouldn't have to worry about the cost of enjoying yourself, which is why we always ensure that our drinks are reasonably priced. For example, a glass of house white costs just £6 and a pint of lager is £5, while a gin & tonic is around £5 (depending on the brand of gin)*.

If coffee is your tipple, take a seat in the Bookmark Cafe and enjoy a delicious cup of your favourite hot drink, or stop by and grab one to take away, using your reusable cup.

SWIMMING POOL AND JACUZZI

Borealis' all-weather pool is perfect for taking a dip - no matter where you are in the world, either docked in a beautiful destination or on a day at sea, as the retractable roof will be open or closed, dependent on where you are cruising to. The pool is surrounded by open deck space and plenty of loungers, so is the ideal spot for soaking up the sunshine or losing yourself in a good book; and the al fresco Poolside Café and Lido Bar are close by when you’re after a bite to eat or something to drink. For blissful relaxation, head for the Jacuzzi and let the warm, bubbling water soak any cares away, while you chat with fellow guests.

Thermal Suite

Our Thermal Suite is a relaxation centre with the ambience of a Turkish bath, and our steam rooms are filled with aromatherapy vapours which are the perfect way to unwind and de-stress; while our heated ceramic relaxation beds are designed to match the curvature of your spine and melt away muscle tension.
Our mineral bath is heated to body temperature, gently embracing you with warmth to alleviate sore joints and soothe away your aches, and so providing wonderful relief for tired muscles. This is the perfect experience for poor circulation and just right after a long day exploring ashore.
