The dedicated Journey Planners at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines have carefully crafted this cruise, placing a spotlight on the rich cultural traditions and history of Gibraltar, Spain, and Portugal.

Gibraltar, guarding the entrance to the Mediterranean, boasts the iconic rock with tunnels intricately carved during the 18th-century Great Siege, providing a captivating exploration experience.

In Cádiz, renowned as the birthplace of tapas, immerse yourself in a flamenco lesson with a local bailaora (flamenco dancer), while Lisbon offers an ideal setting to delve into Portugal’s maritime history or learn the art of making pastéis de nata with a local pastry chef.

From the deck of Borealis, marvel at historic landmarks like the Belém Tower and the Tower of Hercules, acclaimed as the only surviving Roman lighthouse.

In addition, astronomers from Go Stargazing will guide you around the night skies showing celestial wonders in a series of on-deck stargazing sessions.
