Guests will also have the opportunity to join in Liverpool on 4th January 2022 for a 104-night sailing.
In addition, those who book by 31st October 2020 will receive up to £600 per person to spend on board, as well as the cost of tips covered, with sailings starting from £9,999 for Southampton departures and £10,449 for Liverpool.
Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“It has been such an exciting experience planning the first World Cruise aboard our new ship, Borealis. This really is going to be the trip of a lifetime, with so many fantastic opportunities and experiences on offer.
“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.
“Plus, with up to £600 per person in on board spending available for those who book soon, guests will be able experience all that Borealis has on offer – from her many bars and restaurants to her tranquil spa area – while they are not exploring ashore.”
The World Cruise itinerary will also be split into shorter fly-cruise sailings, ranging from 17 to 84 nights.
The unveiling of the World Cruise follows on from the launch of itineraries aboard Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ two new ships, Bolette and Borealis, earlier this month.
The two ships have now officially joined the fleet in Rosyth, Scotland, and will embark on their maiden sailings in spring 2021.
