Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering the opportunity to witness one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – the majestic Aurora Borealis - on Boudicca and Black Watch this winter.

NASA scientists predict that the current period of solar activity will reach a new peak this winter and will not return to the same intensity for at least a decade.
