Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has unveiled the first sailing from its 2024 programme – a 101-night Around the World adventure taking in the USA, Australasia, Asia and Europe.
The cruise, which is setting sail from Southampton in January 2024, offers a wealth of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, from calls into the historic cities of Jerusalem and Bethlehem, to visits to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the chance to step ashore in the rarely-visited Alotau in Papau New Guinea.
Fred Olsen’s team of Journey Planners has hand-crafted this sailing to allow plenty of time ashore in each port of call, made possible by the faster sailing speeds, with extended overnight stays in Charleston, Aukland, Sydney, Australia and Dubai.
Guests will also have the opportunity to venture to the famous Taj Mahal in an extended, three-day overland tour from Mumbai in India.
Commenting, Martin Lister, Head of Itinerary Planning and Destination Experience at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “Our new ship Borealis is a fantastic addition to the fleet, and it is her impressive sailing speeds that have made this special sailing possible.
“It has been a real pleasure to craft this cruise. I can’t wait to welcome our guests on board for this very special sailing.”
