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


Whether you’re needing to cool down after a few hours of sunbathing, or like to keep fit by swimming a few lengths, Borealis‘ all-weather pool is perfect for taking a dip – no matter where you are in the world, or docked in a destination or sailing across the ocean. 

Surrounded by open deck space and plenty of loungers, by the pool is the ideal spot for soaking up the sunshine, and The Poolside Café is always close by so you don’t have to move too far to find 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. 


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 Olsen Art Studio on board Borealis is a peaceful, light and airy space filled with arts and crafts materials for guests to use on a variety of projects – and really bringing to life the Olsen family’s appreciation of art.

It’s a place for those guests who love to paint or draw at home and would like to refine their skills whilst at sea. And it’s a place for those guests who perhaps used to enjoy art many years ago, and have been looking for the opportunity to take it up again.

The studio hosts classes and activities guided by different instructors, and also providing an open space for guests to visit and work on their personal arts and craft projects.


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.


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. 


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.


Throughout your time on board, there will be 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, the 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. 


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 unspolit 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.
