Passengers have the option to depart from Liverpool or Southampton
New Fred. Olsen ship, Borealis, will embark on its first world cruise two years from now, with departure possible from Liverpool or Southampton.

Sailing January 6, 2022 from Southampton, Borealis will embark on a 100-night cruise that includes transits of both the Suez and Panama Canals, visits to America, Hawaii, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and a three-day stay in Sydney. The itinerary will also be split into shorter fly-cruise sailings, ranging from 17 to 84 nights. Passengers also have the opportunity to board the ship in Liverpool on January 4, 2022.

The sailings start from £9,999 for Southampton departures and £10,449 for Liverpool.

37 port calls

‘This is an itinerary packed with opportunity and is made possible by the faster speeds of Borealis, which allows us to offer 37 ports of call with fewer sea days in between’, says Clare Ward, director of product and customer service, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

She added, ‘Three days in Hawaii will allow ample time to experience the volcanic vistas and to learn more about the historic site of Pearl Harbour, sail the scenic fjords of New Zealand, witness the wonder of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, explore the Lost City of Petra in Jordan and admire the spectacular skylines of the bustling cities of Singapore and Dubai.’ 

Passengers who book by October 31, 2020 can receive up to £600 per person to spend on board and the cost of tips covered.

New addition to the Fred. Olsen fleet

Borealis is one of two new Fred. Olsen ships purchased earlier this year from Holland America Line. It is scheduled to make its maiden voyage in spring next year.

The Fred. Olsen fleet is currently in layup in Rosyth, Scotland.
