Guests on board Borealis will visit breathtaking sites such as Hawaii, French Polynesia, Australia, Bali, and Oman as part of the 2024 World Cruise.
The epic 101-night cruise includes three days on the Florida coast, encountering wildlife in Costa Rica’s rainforest, revelling in local cultures and volcanic panoramas in Hawaii, and finding bliss in the idyllic islands of French Polynesia.
From there, guests will be treated to different landscapes, famed wineries, and gorgeous waterways in New Zealand, as well as iconic sights and natural marvels like Ayers Rock.
Highlights of the Asian part of the journey include the rarely visited Alotau in Papua New Guinea, the laid-back Bali, and Komodo Island, the natural habitat of the world’s largest lizard.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to Australia for the first time in more than three years,” said Martin Lister, Head of Itinerary Planning and Destination Experience at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.
“On this epic voyage around the world, our guests will have a multitude of opportunities to see varying species of marine and wildlife”.
“We have timed this cruise to coincide with humpback whales making their annual migratory trip from Alaska’s summer feeding grounds.”
“We have planned some incredible once-in-a-lifetime experiences with our trusted partners that enable guests to immerse themselves in the destination they are visiting.” These include seeing Uluru at sunrise in Australia, discovering more about rural life in Papua New Guinea on a beach excursion where native women show the age-old method of clay pot making, and spending time with a Dabbawala delivering tiffin lunch boxes in Mumbai.”
