I struggle at calling on the phone, busy signal and sending email to contact is confusing. Once I get the correct email,it is easy and if I ask to be contacted they are quick to do so. They are knowledgable on the trip info and polite. I have booked 3 times now. I have recommended them to others already.

Excellent service - Thanks.

Not hanging on a phone for an answer is a plus and the booking of the holiday was so easy. Also I was advised I had 100 cruise miles banked as I forgot I had used ROL for our Baltic cruise last year.That gave me another discount. Friendly and efficient staff

Overview


Balmoral will be your guide to discovering some of very best and most exciting destinations on North America’s western shores; a first for Fred. Olsen. On this very special voyage, you’ll uncover a host of highlights in the USA and Mexico; while beautiful islands and a few South and Central American gems are thrown in for good measure too. The sweet scented gardens and lush levada trails of Madeira will be yours to explore first before the ship sails across the Atlantic. Beautiful Barbados and Bonaire will provide a touch of Caribbean flavour to your cruise, with chances to relax on gorgeous sun-kissed beaches or even go in search of sea turtles. Then it’s on to Colombia to admire the Hispanic architecture of Cartagena de Indias; and Panama, where you’ll stop-off in Colon before experiencing a memorable journey through the Panama Canal en route to El Salvador and the seductive white-sand beaches of Acajutla. Three enticing resorts on Mexico’s Pacific Coast will then await your exploration. Step ashore at Puerto Vallarta and discover the fine sculptures of the Malecon Boardwalk, or visit the colourful botanical gardens; discover Mazatlán’s mix of historic and modern architecture; and spend a day immersing yourself in the beauty of Cabo San Lucas – all before continuing onwards to the USA to experience ‘The California Dream’. Three days in stunning San Francisco kicks-off your Californian adventure in style. With so many fantastic attractions to discover, including the historic Alcatraz prison, magnificent Golden Gate Bridge and the largest Chinatown outside of Asia, ‘San Fran’ is sure to invigorate and entertain. Be sure to climb the city’s steep hills via one of the iconic cable cars and take in the sights, a simply unforgettable experience. Heading south along the coast, experience the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles with the chance to see the world-famous Hollywood sign, visit the Walk of Fame, stroll along Rodeo Drive and Sunset Boulevard and much more; then sample San Diego’s laid-back vibes and visit a variety of must-see sites. The USS Midway Museum and Balboa Park, home of the world-renowned San Diego Zoo, are not-to-be-missed. Returning to Mexico, enjoy a day amongst the soaring mountains, gorgeous beaches and inviting azure waters of Acapulco; then cruise to Costa Rica and lively Punta Arenas. A journey back through the Panama Canal will lead you to the Caribbean once more to discover the delights of two Dutch-influenced islands, Aruba and St. Maarten; before your cruise concludes with stops in the Azores and Spain.

There’s a comfy pub with occasional live music or comedy, cabaret and shows in the Neptune Lounge, or drift away with a cool drink and spectacular seascapes in the Observatory Lounge.
