SHIP Information

Borealis is one of the fastest luxury ships in the world, with a cruising speed of 25 knots. The ship’s decor is enhanced by a $2 million collection of artwork and fine antiques themed on Dutch exploration, giving an atmosphere of elegance and refinement, with features that recall famous ships in our history. 

The 3-deck OVAL ATRIUM has as its’ centrepiece a clock tower based on a17th century Flemish original. The tower’s 14 clocks are adorned with mermaids, dolphins and snakes. Some clocks tell the time around the world, others are just for show! The base of tower features an astrological clock on one side and astronomical clock on the other - depicting the stars in the city of Rotterdam’s night sky.

Highlights

Onboard MS Rotterdam guests may enjoy a taste of De Libjrije, featuring the three star Michelin cuisine of Culinary Council member Jonny Boer once per cruise, as well as dining options including the Pinnacle Grill and Canaletto

Dining

Dining on board Borealis is always an unforgettable experience. From starting your days with a perfectly cooked breakfast every morning, or a healthy option if you prefer, to enjoying five-course á la carte meals or delicious self-service buffets in the evening, we're sure you'll savour every last morsel.

Choose from the stylish and intimate restaurants and enjoy a formal dining experience, while our friendly, attentive waiters cater to your every need; or perhaps enjoy a buffet in the more relaxed setting - perfect for a quick lunch or refueling in the evening after an exciting day ashore. In warm weather, the extra-special al fresco dining experience on offer at The Grill by The Poolside, which combines spectacular dishes with a setting to match, is not-to-be-missed.

Boasting an expansive range of enrichment facilities and opportunity, Fred. Olsen ships are bound to offer something you'll want to know more about.

Every day aboard a Fred. Olsen cruise ship brings a wealth of cruise activities and indulgences, along with the freedom to partake in as many-or as few- as you please. It's an opportunity to try something new that surprises you, every day.

Dabble, discover, daydream- do everything, or do nothing at all.

Health & Fitness

Whether you want to workout in the Fitness Centre, learn yoga, pamper yourself with a massage and spa treatment, or enjoy a game of basketball, there's a perfect onboard activity for everyone.

Kid & Teens

During the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays only, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offer organised and hosted children’s activities within the Little Skippers Club subject to a minimum number of children booked on the cruise.

Useful to Know
Gratuities

Typically, gratuities are charged at £5.00 per person, per day for guests aged 12 and over. This amount is split equally between your stewardess∘ and restaurant waiter, and will be automatically added to your on board account. While very much appreciated, these gratuities are voluntary, and therefore can be adjusted or removed completely at Guest Services on board the ship if you wish
