On board experience

Accommodation

The stylish, comfortable rooms aboard Balmoral have been designed with their guests needs in mind. Fred. Olsen has truly thought of everything to ensure your time on Balmoral is as enjoyable, relaxing and carefree as possible. Even the lowest-priced interior rooms are equipped with climate control, an interactive smart TV, hairdryer, desk, phone, fridge (which can be stocked as a minibar, if you wish) and tea and coffee making facilities as standard.

You could even feel the sea breeze from your very own private balcony. Take in spectacular scenic views from the comfort of your Ocean View room or enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience in a stylish suite. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to find the perfect home from home.

Dining

The stylish Ballindalloch is Balmoral’s main restaurant offering a fantastic selection of expertly prepared delicious dishes to enjoy. Located on Deck 6, Ballindalloch features large picture windows that provide stunning views as you dine. The Spey & Avon restaurants are newly refurbished with comfortable new seating and tasteful decor. They’ve been carefully designed to make the most of the large windows providing soothing natural light and ever-changing views.

Palms Cafe is the ships relaxed dining option. Here, you’ll find a relaxed buffet style of service, perfect for guests who prefer not to dine at a set time in Ballindalloch. Though it is more relaxed, you can still expect to see an abundance of indulgent dishes.

Balmoral has two speciality dining options; The Grill and The Poolside. The Grill, located portside aft on Lido Deck, offers a very special dining experience. Here, you can enjoy a romantic evening or celebrate in style with newfound friends. The Poolside is an exclusive venue for very special indoor and alfresco dining. A lovely intimate setting, The Poolside features a themed menu of expertly crafted dishes, all inspired by flavours from your cruising region.

Entertainment

Balmoral combines comfortable and stylish accommodation with great spaces for everyone to enjoy. During the day, there’s plenty on offer. With exciting visits to destinations that larger ships cannot reach, giving you an action-packed adventure. Alternatively, relax and unwind around one of the two open-air pools that Balmoral has to offer. If you’re looking for something a bit more active, spend the morning in the gym while soaking in the panoramic ocean views. Afterwards, treat yourself to a well-deserved massage at the on board spa and salon. Enjoy a range of evening activities aboard this exciting ship.

Enjoy live music and comedy acts at the local Balmoral pub or take a trip to Neptune Lounge for cabaret and dancing shows. However you choose to spend your time on board, you’ll enjoy every moment of it.


Destinations

Balmoral sails from Newcastle, Southampton, Rosyth and Dover to Europe, Africa and the Mediterranean.
