Sail Date: Dec 2023

The ship was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The service on board from every member of staff was excellent. Our cabin was upgraded for us and provided welcome extra space for three of us in a beautifully appointed suite. The entertainment was good, shows by the crew and a comedian we have seen before and thoroughly enjoyed again along with an excellent singer. Talks from the guest speakers were interesting and informative. The shuttle buses did drop us quite a long way from the town centres, much further to walk than we were told and would have been a problem for some people although we managed.

This was our 6th cruise on Boreallis and the food was fantastic, the best yet. Plenty of choice in the view buffet restaurant and the poolside bar. We chose the late sitting and were allocated the Aurora restaurant. Service was excellent, plates cleared immediately no long wait for anything. The choice and quality of food was delicious and we were served a lovely Christmas dinner. There was no evidence of coronavirus or norovirus. Most people sanitized their hands going into the restaurant as usual. If there is any illness then an announcement is usually made and self service is stopped, staff wear masks and extra sanitation takes place. Nothing like this happened. Would definitely recommend Fred Olsen as we have only had positive experiences.

Premier suites are fabulous. Lots of little extras to make you feel really special
