First of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ new ships, Borealis, joins rest of the fleet in Rosyth

The first of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ two new ships, Borealis, has arrived in Rosyth, Scotland, joining the rest of the fleet.

The ship arrived at Babcock’s Rosyth Facilities this afternoon after sailing beneath the iconic Forth and Queensferry bridges. The second of the new ships, Bolette, is due to arrive in mid-September.

Peter Deer, Managing Director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“It is great to see the first of our two new ships, Borealis, alongside next to the rest of our fleet.

“We can now begin our rebranding work to add those trademark Fred. Olsen touches to the interior and exterior of the vessel, including our famous red funnels.

“This is an important milestone for us and marks the start of a new future for our company.”

Borealis’ arrival comes ahead of itineraries for the two new ships going on sale with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines from next week.

Bolette’s itineraries, including those previously scheduled for Boudicca plus a number of brand new sailings, will be available to book from 9am on Monday, 7th September.

Borealis will go on general sale on Tuesday, 15th September, with Black Watch’s itineraries and a selection of new cruises added.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has defined and redefined the cruise experience, and judging by the number of passengers that come back time and again, we seem to have styled it to perfection

The company originated in Hvitsten, a small town on Oslofjord in Norway, in 1848 when three Olsen brothers – Fredrik Christian, Petter and Andreas – bought their first ships and began an international shipping company.

Now into the fifth generation of the family, they operate companies skilled in various aspects of the cruise and passenger shipping trade as well as aviation, ships’ crewing, shipbuilding and offshore industries.
Aside from the transportation industries, the Fred. Olsen group also has interests in the luxury hotel sector, estate management, property development, and electronics companies.

Offices for the company are spread throughout the world, although the company headquarters remain firmly in the family’s hands in Oslo and Tenerife. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is based in Ipswich in Suffolk.
