Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines will be returning to Australia for the first time since 2020.

As part of the 2024 World Cruise, guests on board Borealis will visit beautiful destinations including Hawaii, French Polynesia, Australia, Bali and Oman among many others.

The epic 101-night voyage includes the opportunity to spend three days on Florida’s coast, encounter wildlife in the rainforests of Costa Rica, revel in local cultures and volcanic vistas in Hawaii and find bliss in the paradise islands of French Polynesia.

From there, guests will experience diverse landscapes, famous vineyards and scenic waterways in New Zealand, while iconic landmarks and natural wonders such as Ayers Rock await in Australia.

Highlights on the Asian leg of the adventure include rarely-visited Alotau in Papua New Guinea, laid-back Bali and Komodo Island – the natural habitat of the world’s largest lizard.

Martin Lister, Head of Itinerary Planning and Destination Experience at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to Australia for the first time in more than three years.

“On this epic cruise circumnavigating the world, our guests will have a multitude of opportunities to see varying species of marine and wildlife.

“The waters around Hawaii are said to be some of the best for whale watching and we have timed this cruise to coincide with humpback whales making their annual migratory trip from the summer feeding grounds of Alaska.

“Together with our trusted partners, we have planned some incredible once-in-a-lifetime experiences to enable guests to truly immerse themselves in the destination they are visiting. These include seeing Uluru at sunrise in Australia, discovering more about village life in Papua New Guinea on a shore tour to see local women demonstrate the age-old technique of clay pot making and spending time with a Dabbawala in Mumbai delivering tiffin lunch boxes.”
