New Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ ship Borealis is to be deployed on a world cruise with departures from Liverpool and Southampton.

The former Holland America Line vessel will embark on the 100-day voyage in January 2022. 

The itinerary includes transits of both the Suez and Panama Canals, visits to America, Hawaii, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and a three-day stay in Sydney.

Passengers can join in Liverpool on January 4 or Southampton on January 6, 2022.

Those booking by October 31 will receive up to £600 per person to spend on board, as well as the cost of tips covered.

Prices start at £9,999 for Southampton departures and £10,449 for Liverpool.

The circumnavigation will also be split into shorter fly-cruise sections, ranging from 17 to 84 nights in duration. 

The unveiling of the world cruise follows the introduction of itineraries by new ships, Bolette and Borealis, earlier this month.  

They have now officially joined the fleet in Rosyth, Scotland, and are due embark on their maiden sailings in spring 2021.  

Product and customer service director Clare Ward said:  “It has been such an exciting experience planning the first world cruise aboard our new ship Borealis. 

“Three days in Hawaii will allow ample time to experience the volcanic vistas and to learn more about the historic site of Pearl Harbour. 

“Sail the scenic fjords of New Zealand; witness the wonder of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia; explore the Lost City of Petra in Jordan and admire the spectacular skylines of the bustling cities of Singapore and Dubai. 

 “This is an itinerary packed with opportunity and is made possible by the faster speeds of Borealis, which allows us to offer 37 ports of call with fewer sea days in between.”
