Overview

Thanks to her ability to cruise at higher speeds than other ships, Borealis – sister ship of our flagship Bolette – is perfectly suited for sailing our longer voyages across the globe. Cruising faster means she can include more stops, scenic discoveries and highlights into each itinerary.

Stylish, spacious and comfortable, with a choice of elegant public areas, restaurants and just 702 cabins, she is ideal for Fred. Olsen's style of cruising. On board Borealis you’ll find you’re never overcrowded. There is always ample room in which to indulge yourself in the stylish dining venues, enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and fantastic entertainment at the bars, lounges and theatres, and while away the hours by the all-season pool.

Borealis fits perfectly into our small ship fleet and, like all our vessels, has her own elegant design touches, with attention paid to the finer details every step of the way.

Gratuities

Gratuities for our dedicated service team are not included in the cost of your holiday. While tipping is entirely at your discretion, we pride ourselves on the service offered to our guests, and are confident that you’ll wish to reward staff on board for the attention you receive.

Typically, gratuities are charged at £5.00 per person, per day for guests aged 12 and over. This amount is split equally between your stewardess and restaurant waiter, and will be automatically added to your on board account. While very much appreciated, these gratuities are voluntary, and therefore can be adjusted or removed completely at Guest Services on board the ship if you wish; and you are welcome to tip personally if you prefer.

For your convenience, you can also pre-pay gratuities before your cruise. We'll check with you at the time of booking if you’d like to pay prior to your cruise.

Pre-payment can be made anytime up to 5 days before departure by simply calling our Guest Services team on 0800 0355 145 or e-mail [email protected]

Our Guest Services team are available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Entertainment

On a cruise holiday, we know that your on board experience is just as important to you as the time you spend ashore. That's why we are dedicated to ensuring our entertainment programme is packed with activities and memorable performances that help to create inspirational days and unforgettable nights.

Bars & Lounges

With fewer people on board our smaller, more intimate fleet, it's easy to find live entertainment to enjoy, a bar stool to perch on as you chat with new-found friends or a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink and a good book. 

EVENING ENTERTAINMENT

Night time entertainment is a high point of any Fred. Olsen cruise. When the lights go down, we’ll treat you to a selection of live shows ranging from music and cabaret to quick-fire stand-up comedy. Just relax, sit back and enjoy the fabulous acts with your favourite tipple or cocktail.

Following the show, you can stroll under the stars on deck, or dance the night away to tunes performed by your ship's resident band. And with our fabulous Dance Hosts, no-one goes too long without a dance partner.

DINING AND DRINKS

Dining on board a Fred. Olsen ship is a real pleasure. Enjoy a cocktail in one of our stylish bars, with new found friends; before heading to dinner for a delicious five-course meal crafted by our talented on board chefs, who pay attention to every detail, and served by your knowledgeable and friendly waiter. With wine pairing suggestions made by our sommelier, your taste buds will be tantalised as you sail serenely to your next exciting destination.

The Auditorium

Providing alternative entertainment to the shows, lectures and talks enjoyed in the main Neptune Lounge, the spacious, stylish and comfortable Auditorium offers a unique and memorable experience.

The venue has been specially-designed to host a range of exciting, educational and interactive events and occasions, from cooking demonstrations and guest appearances, to presentations and cinema evenings.

The Bolette Card Room

Featuring plenty of card tables and comfortable chairs, the Bolette Card Room provides guests with a quiet, relaxing space to enjoy a competitive hand or two, or simply a bit of fun, perhaps with a delicious coffee or tea from the nearby Bookmark Café.

Bridge is always a popular pursuit on board, so you're sure to find players up for a challenge. On some cruises, Bridge tuition is on offer to help you develop your skills.

Boutique Shopping

The shops on board Borealis offer everything you may want or need during your time on board, whether you're treating yourself or a loved on to a holiday gift or simply need some basic essentials.

Visit the Boutique Shop for designer handbags, perfumes and much more at fantastic Duty Free prices, or perhaps to pick from the range of casual clothing and evening wear if you need a new outfit; and bring home something special from the Jewellery Shop. At the Port Shop, you'll find everything from sun cream, shampoo and toothpaste to books and tasty snacks too. 

The Flower Shop

Add a touch of floral colour and fragrance to your cabin, or perhaps treat someone special, with a delightful bouquet from the Flower Shop, available on Borealis.

With a choice of both stunning year-round and seasonal flowers, create a personalised bouquet to suit your style, or simply select from the beautifully crafted ready-made arrangements. You also have the opportunity to select single stems to provide the finishing touch to your Formal Night.

Photo Gallery

Throughout your time on board, our expert photographers will be on hand to capture some of the most magical and memorable experiences enjoyed during your cruise holiday.

At the Photo Gallery, our friendly team will be ready to help you view your photos and purchase your favourites - whether you choose to take home individual shots or a photo package. 

Neptune Lounge & Balcony

When the lights go down at the Neptune Lounge and you settle in for the evening at Borealis' elegant, two-tiered entertainment venue, you're in for an entertainment extravaganza of live shows ranging from music and cabaret to quick-fire comedy and much more.

There is plenty of comfortable seating in this spacious venue, with unspoilt views of the grand stage to be enjoyed from every vantage point - including the upper-tier Neptune Balcony - with a glass of your favourite tipple in hand.

The lounge is also used for daytime lectures and events, as well as Captain's Welcome and Farewell parties.

The Observatory

The tranquil atmosphere and elegance of The Observatory makes it the perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails and evening drinks, accompanied by our resident Pianist. With panoramic windows, this is also the perfect spot for scenic cruising when the weather is not being kind.

This stylish venue is also where we host our premium Traditional Afternoon Tea service, which offers a selection of delicious sandwiches, cakes, pastries and scones to be enjoyed with top quality teas and unforgettable scenic views.

Afternoon tea can be pre booked 8 weeks before departure, via your My Cruises account.

The Bookmark Café and Lounge

The Bookmark Café is the perfect spot to relax and and enjoy your choice of speciality coffee or tea. Perhaps an Earl Grey or delicious latte in the morning, or a luxury hot chocolate with all the trimmings after a busy day ashore; accompanied by a mouth-watering selection of handmade chocolates and freshly baked cakes and treats.

To make your coffee or tea selection for your cruise even easier, pre-book your Bookmark Bestseller card, and it will be added to your cabin account when you arrive on board, all ready for use immediately. With 7 hot drinks for you to enjoy, and a bag of milk or mixed truffles too, why not treat someone special and arrange a Bookmark Bestseller card for their cruise?

You can pre book your Bookmark Bestseller card 8 weeks before departure, via your My Cruises account.

Morning Light Pub & Lounge

Named after a four masted ship which the Olsen family bought back in 1892, this space has been designed to make you feel comfortable and relaxed while you enjoy your cruise. You will find live music and an extensive range of drinks and cocktails.

Ocean Bar

The inviting, spacious and sociable Ocean Bar is situated close to the Neptune Balcony on Lounge Deck 5, and so is the perfect place in which to enjoy a drink or two before taking in the evening show.

It is a great post-show venue too; the Ocean Bar really comes to life in late evening when the resident band or DJ provides the music, and invites you to the floor to dance into night.

Piano Bar

During a cruise, and especially during time at sea, there are not many better ways to relax and enjoy your time on board than to simply sit back and listen to the restful sounds of music played by a talented pianist.

At the Piano Bar, you can do exactly that. Perhaps take a seat before dinner and settle into your evening with a cocktail, or visit this stylish, spacious venue after the evening show to wind down.

The Oriental Tea Room

Elegant and opulent, with its exotic décor and stylish furnishings, and offering a menu of finest quality teas and herbal infusions, The Oriental Tea Room provides guests with an authentic Far Eastern experience.

Enjoy a selection of oolong, black, green and white teas from China, Japan and Taiwan, as well as a few favourite blends from back home, such as Earl Grey and English Chamomile. Or for something cold and refreshing, the choice of tea cocktails and delicious bottled beer, including Tiger and Tsingtao, are sure to tempt too.

Headline Acts

Alongside our resident show companies, guest performers and headline acts such as vocalists, comedians and magicians are also on hand to showcase their talents and entertain with very special performances in our Neptune Lounges.

Guests could take a seat and enjoy the sounds of classical piano over a glass of their favourite drink; dance the night away to music provided by a DJ or live singer; and much more, all in the comfort of our stylish and spacious bars and lounges.

Resident Show Company

Every evening our smaller ships come alive with the bright lights, colourful sights and wonderful sounds of live entertainment provided by the incredible singers, dancers and actors of our multi-talented resident show companies.

At the main entertainment venue on board their Fred. Olsen ship, guests can take a seat, settle in and simply enjoy extravaganzas of song, dance, music, cabaret and theatre in the company of loved ones, friends and fellow guests.
