Day 1 - Dover, UK

Arrive: Mon 22 July 2024 / Depart: Mon 22 July 2024

When you cruise from Dover with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines you are in for an unforgettable experience from the moment you set sail. After embarking your smaller, friendlier cruise ship, you can settle in on board, relax and watch the iconic white cliffs drift out of view as you sail away from England’s beautiful southeast coast on a memorable voyage featuring some of the world’s greatest destinations. Fred. Olsen’s diverse selection of cruises from Dover include chances to sail breathtaking Norwegian or Greenlandic fjords; journey along picturesque, size-restricted waterways to stunning cities such as Amsterdam, Bordeaux, Hamburg and Stockholm; and go in search of cultural and scenic highlights in the Baltic, or on Italy’s glorious Amalfi Coast. Whatever itinerary you choose, you’ll enjoy a holiday packed with incredible experiences and make memories that will last a lifetime. See below to find your perfect Fred. Olsen cruise from Dover.

Day 2 - St. Peter Port, Guernsey

Arrive: Tue 23 July 2024 / Depart: Tue 23 July 2024

The picturesque capital of Guernsey, and the main port of the Channel Islands, St. Peter Port, is a bustling, historic town where Georgian and Regency architecture has been refined by French émigrés. The result of these influences is a charming mix of styles, with tumbling terraces and tiered gardens, stylish boutiques and chic cafés that are an absolute joy to explore. Of course, many visitors tour the town on the hunt for a bargain in the low-tax stores. The author of Les Misérables, Victor Hugo, was exiled in Guernsey, living in Hauteville House for 15 years. Now known as Victor Hugo House, it is a museum owned and operated by the Paris city government. Castle Cornet, the ancient harbour fortress, sits atop a rock outcrop reached along a bridge and breakwater, and houses several museums.

Day 3 - Cruising

Day 4 - Killybegs

Arrive: Thu 25 July 2024 / Depart: Thu 25 July 2024

The welcoming, picturesque Irish town of Killybegs is a great place to pass the hours watching fishing boats and net menders, or catching a glimpse of the seals in the harbour. Home to Ireland’s premier fishing port, Killybegs is a town with a deep maritime history and a fine harbour. Located within the rolling hills of the Wild Atlantic Way – a 2,500km tourist trail that stretches from County Donegal to County Cork – Killybegs offers links to some of Ireland’s most popular attractions including Malin Head; The Shannon Estuary, which is home to bottlenose dolphins; and Claire Island Lighthouse. In town, Killybegs’ International Carpet Making & Fishing Centre and the Maritime and Heritage Centre are both worth visiting to get an understanding of the history of this small, yet important, Irish town. On the outskirts, two areas of superb natural beauty – the unspoilt grasslands of Saint John's Point and the blue flag Fintra Beach – provide fantastic views of Donegal Bay and Benbulben Mountain.

Day 5 - Stornoway (Isle Lewis)

Arrive: Fri 26 July 2024 / Depart: Fri 26 July 2024

Thanks to its sheltered location, Stornoway, on the island of Lewis and Harris, is the largest town of the Outer Hebrides islands of Scotland. The port offers a warm welcome to those visiting Lewis as part of their exploration of one of the UK’s remotest locations. A stroll along the quay reveals local fishermen on traditional fleets landing the catch of the day, before shipping it to one the island’s amazing eateries. There is an unmistakeable odour of peat in the air as the smokehouses turn the seafood into island specialities. Historic Lews Castle and the adjoining museum are key cultural centre for the islands’ heritage. An Lanntair Art Centre samples local arts and a good programme of art events, while a unique shopping experience awaits at the Harris Tweed Hebrides Outlet and Lewis Loom Centre, where traditional weaving methods can be discovered. Alternatively, a wander through the surrounding woods and a visit to the Woodland Centre can while away a pleasant hour or two.

Day 6 - Portree, Isle of Skye

Arrive: Sat 27 July 2024 / Depart: Sat 27 July 2024

Portree is the Isle of Skye's largest and liveliest town. Set within a pretty natural harbour with brightly-coloured houses and surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills, Portree is a truly beautiful place to explore. Its name (from the Gaelic for King's Harbour) commemorates James V, who arrived here in 1540 to pacify the local clans. The town is a popular tourist destination, thanks to its stunning coastline and interesting attractions that include the Aros Centre and the An Tuireann Arts Centre, which celebrate the island's Gaelic heritage. Portree also serves as a gateway to other attractions on the island, such as the intriguing rock formations at Trotternish Ridge, north of the town, the ruins of Tusdale, and the peninsula unflatteringly known as ‘The Lump’, which once provided a setting for public hangings.

Day 7 - At Sea

Day 8 - Kirkwall

Arrive: Mon 29 July 2024 / Depart: Mon 29 July 2024

Kirkwall, the capital of the Orkney Islands, resonates with ancient echoes of Christian, Nordic and Celtic history. It’s a town that feels more Scandinavian than Scottish; in fact, the name Kirkwall comes from the Norse for 'Church Bay', relating to the town's 11th century Church of St Olaf of Norway. Exploring the town’s atmospheric paved streets and twisting lanes, reveals a number of highlights, including the ruins of the Earl and Bishop’s Palaces, dating from the mid-12th century and serving as a reminder of the Orkney's turbulent past. The palaces are considered by many to be the finest Renaissance buildings in Scotland. Also worth visiting is the recently restored St. Magnus Cathedral, founded in memory of Saint Magnus Erlendsson by Norseman Earl Rögnvald Kali. Don't miss Tankerness House, a beautifully preserved 16th century townhouse, and the Orkney Wireless Museum, with it's fascinating insights into the history of radio, too.

Day 9 - At Sea

Borealis From Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

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 represents, our founding family’s history and Norwegian heritage. Stylish, spacious and comfortable, with capacity for fewer than 1,400 guests, she’s in keeping with our 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, Show lessby size, in our 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 our friendly staff providing our typical level of personal, attentive service, there’s an intimate feel to the on board experience too.
