12 Day Ocean Cruise

SAILING FROM LIVERPOOL ABOARD BOREALIS


Visiting five captivating destinations on board Borealis offers opportunities for an immersive, enriching discovery of quintessentially Spanish and Portuguese culture and traditions. On Spain's sunlit south coast, the historic and aesthetic of a sparkling Andalusian gem are sure to delight; majestic monuments - such as the Torre Tavira watchtower and the 18th century cathedral - await in ancient Cadiz. For taste of authentic local flavours, there is time to sample delicious tapas in Cadiz, or tour to Jerez, a city renowned for its sweet sherry. There's also a visit to Gibraltar, to experience the unique mix of Spanish and English influenced culture and for a chance to climb to the top of the iconic 'rock' for grandstand ocean views.

Borealis benefits from being just small enough to dock in pretty Portimao, to bring you closer ot the beautiful beaches and coastal panoramas of the sunbathed Algarve, for a memorable introduction to Portugal. In Lisbon, the attraction-packed capital, fascinating maritime heritage, architectural highlights and engaging museums create a recipe for a rewarding day of exploration. Speaking of recipes, you could not only taste Lisbon's Pasteis de Nata too, but also make your own traditional custard tarts with a local pastry chef. Finally, there's a chance to revel in the icons of Oporto; Portugal's UNESCO-listed second city is renowned for its historic centre - the Ribeira District - and it's world-famous port wines.

Fred Olsen Presents Borealis

Bearing a name that previously bestowed an Olsen-owned vessel in the 1940s, and inspires thoughts of the Aurora Borealis, elegant Borealis proudly connects with, and reporesents, the founding family's history and Norwegian heritage. Stylish, spacious and comfortable, with capacity for fewer than 1400 guests, she's in keeping with their commitment to offering a more traditional style of cruising. But while Borealis' capacity is smaller than many cruise vessels, she's still one of the largest ships, by size, in the fleet. 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. And of course, with friendly staff providing a typical level of personal, attentive service, there's an intimate feel to the on board experience too.
