It's a place of great historic charm, notably around the Vieux Basin, where lofty slate-and-timber fronted houses overlook the colourful yacht and fishing harbour, and sloping cobbled streets recall 16th century Honfleur. Not to be missed are the 15th century wooden church and the Impressionist paintings of the Museé Eugene Boudin.

The Ship - Balmoral

Balmoral is the largest of the Fred. Olsen ocean-going cruise ships. It is small enough to navigate size-restricted waterways such as the Kiel Canal, providing fantastic scenic cruising opportunities, while retaining the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for. She is named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, Balmoral. The Scottish theme runs throughout the main dining venues, the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey, where guests can enjoy tantalising menus prepared by expert chefs. Balmoral features 710 well-appointed rooms and suites and a selection of comfortable lounges, bars and inviting public areas, providing you with ample space in which to relax and share a memorable cruise experience with hundreds (not thousands!) of fellow travellers. As Fred. Olsen’s guests have come to expect, there is an array of superb entertainment on offer throughout the day, from lectures and hobby classes to live cabaret and comedians, ensuring you can make the most of your time on board.

What’s on board:

Fully equipped fitness centre, golf nets and table tennis, art gallery, launderette and ironing room, boutique shopping, Avon, Spey and Ballindalloch restaurants, Palms Café, The Grill, Bookmark Café, Neptune Lounge, Lido Lounge, Observatory, Morning Light Pub and Marquee Bar
