Pleasant negotiations

18 Jun 2018

Discussions were plain and straightforward, and the responses to questions were clear. Not being particularly computer literate, \I don't know that I shall be able to download the information,- I have yet to try. A package in the post would be more reassuring !

Recommended by a friend, as good as she had said.

Very effective service from both Customer And Transfer Depts.

Although we have just been forced (through changed personal circumstances) to cancel a cruise, the transfer Dept were extremely efficient in re-booking for 2019 and at least ensuring that we did not lose all our money! Follow up emails were swiftly despatched. Many thanks indeed

  • Rosyth

    Day 1

    Rosyth

    07 Jul 2018

    Rosyth is in good proximity to the heartlands of Scotland, and many historic attractions are within an hours drive of Rosyth. Also within easy reach of Rosyth is the city of Edinburgh. You can explore this historic city, experiencing the famous Military tattoo, the museum of Scotland, as well as Edinburgh castle itself.

  • Day 2


    Kirkwall, Orkneys

    08 Jul 2018

    Ancient echoes of Christian, Nordic and Celtic history resonate here in the capital of the Orkneys, whose 70 little islands of the Scottish north coast were conquered by 9th century Norsemen before being returned after non-payment of a loan! Kirkwall's St Magnus Cathedral has been drawing worshippers for 800 years – but even this time scale is eclipsed by the 5,000-years-old enigma of Skara Brae's Neolithic settlement.

  • Day 2


    Cruising by Old Man of Hoy, Orkneys

  • Lerwick, Shetlands

    Day 3

    Lerwick, Shetlands

    09 Jul 2018

The Ship


Named after the Scottish home of the Royal Family. Still smaller than most cruise ships today, there are 710 cabins and suites and generous public space for the 1,300 guests on board. The main restaurant is Ballindalloch (named after the Speyside village and castle), while the two other formal restaurants are Avon and Spey – named after two of Scotland’s most beautiful salmon rivers. 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.

Balmoral


Launched: January 2008 | Occupancy: 1,350 passengers
