Sister ship of our flagship Bolette, Borealis joined us 2020, and is perfectly suited for enjoying scenic cruising of the world’s lesser-known waterways. From cruising past remarkable landscapes and historical sites to capturing the beauty of the natural world.

Redecorated and refurbished when she joined our fleet  in order to meet the high standards of the Olsen family, Borealis features a wonderful series of lounges, bars, elegant restaurants and wide-open deck spaces, as well as 702 beautiful cabins and suites; perfectly suited to the Fred. Olsen style of cruising.

Enjoy one of our Signatures Experiences of Scenic Discoveries from the perfectly-appointed Observatory, where guests will be able to see outstanding natural scenery and iconic landmarks, accompanied by commentary from our on board teams; or sample delicious Treats of the Region in the Auditorium where our talented chefs will prepare dishes that are local to the exciting destinations you’re visiting. Our friendly crew will be on hand throughout your cruise, providing the personal service they’re known for.



Join our Show Team in the Neptune Lounge as they put on memorable shows for you, along with guest comedians, singers and magicians, who’ll delight and entertain you, and do join us for our popular Captain’s Welcome and Farewell parties. During the day, the Neptune Lounge is used for our Signature Experiences, where our guest speakers will share their knowledge with you, delivering fascinating talks and activities, designed to give you a deeper understanding of the destinations you’ll be visiting. It’s also the perfect place to attend our ‘Audience with…’sessions, where you can learn about how much work goes into our Shows, or hear about life as a ship’s Captain or officer.

Keep fit by swimming a few lengths, or cool down after relaxing in the sunshine on deck in either of Balmoral’s large, heated saltwater pools. Located in the centre of Marquee Deck and at the stern of the ship on Lounge Deck, both pools are surrounded by open deck space and plenty of loungers, so are perfect for soaking up the sunshine or losing yourself in a good book. For blissful relaxation, head for the Jacuzzi and let the warm, bubbling water soak any cares away, while you chat with fellow guests.

Featuring plenty of card tables and comfortable chairs, the Card Room on board Balmoral provides guests with a quiet, relaxing space to enjoy a competitive hand or two, or simply a bit of fun. 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.

Located in the Bookmark Café on Lounge Deck, Balmoral’s well-appointed library provides a wide variety of books and publications, including some large print books to delve into, accompanied by speciality coffees, teas and tempting chocolates or baked treats served close by to this quiet, comfortable space.

The shops on board Balmoral offer everything you may want or need during your time on board, whether you’re treating yourself or a loved one to a holiday gift or simply needing some basic essentials. Visit the Boutique Shop for designer handbags, perfumes and much more at fantastic Duty Free prices, or select from our range of casual clothing and evening wear; 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.
