Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has announced plans to return to Australia for the first time since 2020.
As part of its 2024 World Cruise, guests on board Borealis will visit destinations such as Hawaii, French Polynesia, Australia, Bali and Oman.
The 101-night voyage includes the opportunity to spend three days on Florida’s coast, encounter wildlife in the rainforests of Costa Rica and experience local cultures and volcanic vistas in Hawaii.
The line previously announced plans to return to the Caribbean for the first time in three years with a Classic Caribbean Islands cruise, which calls at nine islands including Bequia and Antigua.
Fred Olsen ‘thrilled’ to be returning to Australia
Fred Olsen head of itinerary planning and destination experience Martin Lister said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to Australia for the first time in more than three years.
“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.”
It comes after the company appointed Samantha Stimpson as its new chief executive with former managing director Peter Deer transitioning into a new role.
Borealis’ 101-night World Cruise, departing from Southampton on 7 January 2024, comes in at £9,999pp.
