MS Borealis

The Olsen’s used to have a ship called Borealis in their fleet many years ago, in 1948, long before they became a cruise line.

The name ties in well with our company heritage stemming from Norway, with so many people going in search of the Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis – with us, and celebrates the romanticism of cruising.

Each ship has its own unique style and personality and will bring exciting new features for our guests to enjoy.

These include:

- More space throughout the ships

- Original artwork and premium décor

- An all-weather swimming pool with a retractable roof

- A wide choice of restaurants, lounges and bars

- More balcony cabins and suites

- Culinary demonstration and wine tasting venues

- A classic two-tiered theatre

- Dedicated meeting spaces, perfect for groups

- Additional spa facilities including a thermal suite, hydrotherapy pool and more treatment rooms

We are so excited to be bringing these ships to our fleet and can’t wait to welcome you on board.
