A brief history


In 1948, long before Fred. Olsen became a cruise line, the company owned a ship called Borealis. Today, they feel the name ties in well with their heritage, which stems from Norway. With so many going in search of the Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis, as they are scientifically known), Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines want to celebrate the romanticism of cruising.


Overview of Borealis

Borealis will slot into the fleet perfectly. As well as being a small-ship with the friendly feel that Fred. Olsen guests know and love, she offers a unique style that brings a range of exciting new features. These include: more space, original artwork and premium decor, an all-weather swimming pool with a retractable roof, a wide choice of restaurants, lounges and bars, more balcony cabins and suites, exciting culinary demonstrations and wine tasting venues, a two-tiered theatre, additional spa facilities including a thermal suite, hydrotherapy pool and more treatment rooms.
