Day 1 - Portsmouth, UK

Arrive: Sat 04 January 2025 / Depart: Sat 04 January 2025

Portsmouth has a number of attractions to offer. When walking around the city you will be able to notice the difference between old and new, with Portsmouth's newest landmark, Spinnaker Tower and award winning Gunwharfs Quay with a huge array of bars, designer shopping, nightclubs and a range of entertainment.

Day 5 - Ponta Delgada, Azores

Arrive: Wed 08 January 2025 / Depart: Wed 08 January 2025

Since their discovery in the early 15th century, the Portuguese Azores have played an important part in oceanic navigation. They were a logistical point for the discovery of new worlds; a port of call for ships engaged in trade between Europe, America and India; and a place to lay anchor for the galleons bringing the wealth of the Americas back to the old world.

Day 11 - Philipsburg, Puerto Rico

Arrive: Tue 14 January 2025 / Depart: Tue 14 January 2025

The world's smallest island shared between two nations – its 16 miles square (and more developed) southern part is Dutch and the northern, French – hilly St Maarten in the Windwards is a dual personality setting of absorbing contrasts. Philipsburg, built on a sand bar, is the old capital and still preserves some attractive colonial architecture, though the island's enticing beaches, excellent restaurants, and shops stocked with duty-free bargains will probably detain you longer!

Day 12 - St. Kitts

Arrive: Wed 15 January 2025 / Depart: Wed 15 January 2025

Adjust to the easygoing pace of St Kitts' dignified little capital, then check out its imposing cathedral before lingering over the purchase of attractive batiks. Ascending past the lush sugar-cane fields to take in the sweeping views from the 17th century Brimstone Hill Fortress - the ‘Gibraltar of the West Indies' whose ramparts recall Anglo-French battles fought here long ago.

Day 13 - Castries

Arrive: Thu 16 January 2025 / Depart: Thu 16 January 2025

What St Lucia's little capital may lack in sophistication it more than compensates for in its colourful Creole mood. Wander amid the lively street market before exploring this most scenic of the Caribbean islands, whose green mountains are draped in lush vegetation, and whose landmarks include the twin peaks of the Pitons rising sheer from the sea, and the steaming sulphur springs of the ‘drive-in' La Soufriere volcano.

Day 13 - Cruising by Pitons

Day 14 - Kingstown

Arrive: Fri 17 January 2025 / Depart: Fri 17 January 2025

At the head of the idyllic island chain of the 30-or-so Grenadines, scenic St Vincent packs into its 18 x 12 miles an extravagant canvas of lush tropical valleys and mountains, home of hummingbird and hibiscus, breadfruit and bamboo, limes and mahogany. In the little capital of Kingstown, the animated markets, dramatic coastal views from historic Fort Charlotte, and luxuriant Botanical Gardens (oldest in the Americas) will detain you - while beyond await Soufriere's towering volcano and the lovely 60 ft waterfall of Baleine.

Day 15 - Barbados

Arrive: Sat 18 January 2025 / Depart: Sat 18 January 2025

An island that blends the exotic mood of the Caribbean with a hint of home (it was British for over 350 years). Here rum punch and calypso meet afternoon tea and cricket in perfect harmony, and Bridgetown's Trafalgar Square is older than our own. With over 30 miles of beaches, 3, 000 hours of sunshine a year, welcoming ‘Bajan' smiles, excellent shopping in the port and flying fish for lunch, Barbados is for many British visitors the quintessential Caribbean island!

Day 16 - St Georges, Grenada

Arrive: Sun 19 January 2025 / Depart: Sun 19 January 2025

Grenada is the ‘Spice Island' of cinnamon, nutmeg, mace and vanilla plantations, dense with lush rainforests, and was the setting for the film Island in the Sun. St George's must surely be the Caribbean's prettiest capital, almost Mediterranean-looking with its picturesque buildings (some dating from the 18th century), steep cobbled streets and stepped alleys rising as if part of a terraced amphitheatre set amid the wooded hill slopes that surround the harbour. Lovely Grand Anse beach - within easy reach - is not to be missed.

Day 17 - Roseau

Arrive: Mon 20 January 2025 / Depart: Mon 20 January 2025

Discovered by Columbus on a Sunday (hence its name), Dominica was once inhabited by fierce Carib Indians and is still home to 3,000 of their descendants. Arriving at Roseau you'll definitely find the welcome friendlier today! And to travel from the capital into the island's exotic tropical interior - which soars to 4,700 feet - is to discover a wonderful environment of dense (and now protected) rainforest, deep lakes, glittering waterfalls and fast-flowing rivers quite unlike any of its neighbours.

Day 18 - St John's, Antigua

Arrive: Tue 21 January 2025

Whatever rugged Antigua may lack in tropical scenery the island more than makes up for with what are some of the best watersports conditions found anywhere in the Carribbean, and 365 beaches (‘one for each day of the year' say the Antiguans) to enjoys! For many, too, the great bay of stunning English Harbour and historic Nelson's Dockyard (Britain's West Indies naval base now restored to its 18th century prime) will prove a magnet.

Day 19 - St John's, Antigua

Depart: Wed 22 January 2025

Whatever rugged Antigua may lack in tropical scenery the island more than makes up for with what are some of the best watersports conditions found anywhere in the Carribbean, and 365 beaches (‘one for each day of the year' say the Antiguans) to enjoys!

Day 25 - Praia di Vitoria, Azores

Arrive: Tue 28 January 2025 / Depart: Tue 28 January 2025

Pretty Praia da Vitoria, the former capital of the Azores, is a town steeped in history. Originally heavily fortified, Praia has a fascinating historic quarter, and a stunning natural harbour that’s overlooked by the impressive 16th century Fort of Santa Catarina. Translated as the Beach of the Victory, Praia da Vitoria is a popular destination thanks to a bustling, modern harbour, vibrant town centre and gorgeous sandy beaches.The pick of which is the uncrowded Praia Grande, which is a safe, dark sand beach with barely any waves.[ReadMoreMob] Praia’s centre has a pleasant pedestrian zone with many attractive shops and some notable historic buildings that deserve a glance. The most notable monuments include the imposing bell towers of 15th century Igreja Matriz de Santa Cruz and the stunning Town Hall in the main square.

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.
