Visiting mainland Portugal and the remote islands of the Azores, this cruise will present you with fascinating nature and history in equal measure. The Azores boasts diverse landscapes, from the Sete Cidades crater lakes to scenes of blue hydrangeas – we’ve even timed your visit for when the national flower is in bloom. In addition, the archipelago’s waters are home to marine life such as sperm whales, which you can spot from Borealis assisted by conservationists from wildlife charity, ORCA. UNESCO-listed Angra do Heroísmo – reached from Praia da Vitória – and Lisbon are ideal for learning about Portugal’s maritime history, while in Madeira you can explore the botanical gardens with a local orchid expert.

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.
