21 Mar 2019

Opertor was great and very helpful - product seems to be value for money however what upsets is when you have booked really early and then a couple of months before travelling you see the same deal far cheaper - understand that need to fill boats etc however those who book early should not loose out.

Very helpful staff and accommodative as well.

The Ship


Balmoral is the largest of our ocean-going cruise ships, yet is still small enough to navigate size-restricted waterways such as the Kiel Canal, providing fantastic scenic cruising opportunities, and retains the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for. Balmoral is named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, and the Scottish theme runs throughout the main dining venues – the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey – where guests can enjoy tantalising menus prepared by our expert chefs. Featuring 710 well-appointed rooms and suites and a selection of comfortable lounges, bars and inviting public areas which have been extensively refitted Show less and improved as part of Fred. Olsen's fleet-wide refurbishment programme, Balmoral provides guests with ample space in which to relax and share a memorable cruise experience with hundreds, not thousands, of fellow travellers. And, as our guests have come to expect, there is always 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.

Balmoral


Launched: January 2008 | Occupancy: 1,350 passengers

Tonnage: 43,537 tons | Length: 715 ft (217.93 m)
