Balmoral Overview

The Balmoral is the grandest vessel in the Fred Olsen Cruise line but still offers guests an intimate home-away-from-home atmosphere. Enjoy Scottish themed public rooms such as the Ballindalloch restaurant with its traditional dining and mouth watering cuisine. Guests can also dine casually at the Palms Cafe or enjoy a festive beverage at the Morning Light Pub. Work on your tan poolside while reading a good novel that you found at the onboard library, relax in the Jacuzzi or splurge on a luxurious spa treatment. At night catch the main show and dancing in the Neptune and Lido Lounges. Along with comfortable and inviting accommodations and friendly staff the Balmoral is the perfect way to explore the world.

Fjords cruise, really lovely staff,... by jjdaes

Sail Date: /

Fjords cruise, really lovely staff, couldn't do enough for you. Food was always excellent in the MDR and our meal in the speciality restaurant was exceptional. There was enough going on on sea days to keep the other half entertained while I sat on the deck watching the world go by. This was our first cruise and now we are hooked.
