  • Departure Date: 16/05/25
  • Duration: 8 Nights
Overview

Named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, Balmoral is small compared to other cruise ships and features just 710 guest cabins. Thanks to her smaller size, she is able to navigate some of Europe's most picturesque waterways, including the Kiel Canal and River Seine, and retains the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for.

Guests on board have plenty of space in which to relax, in elegant and comfortable lounges, bars and public areas, including a Speciality Dining restaurant, the Marquee Bar with its comfortable rattan sofas and beautiful open promenade. Boasting two separate swimming pool decks, Balmoral is perfect for scenic cruising.

The Spey and Avon restaurants at the top of ship offer spectacular views out to sea while you dine and the Observatory Lounge comes to life at sunset. With her beautiful classic ship style, you will be proud to dock each day and step off your ship, Balmoral.

Unique Features

Fred. Olsen's new Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs), the latest addition to our fleet of smaller ships. Now standing by to take you even closer. 

These exciting crafts take guests away from the tourist trails to see the natural wonders, stunning beaches, spectacular coastlines and much more - in a way few∘ others get to enjoy. An unmissable, immersive journey of exploration.  

RIB experiences are available in selected ports and areas of scenic cruising in some of the world's most beautiful regions. These include Norway, Iceland Greenland, Denmark, Sweden, The Maldives, Monaco, France, Estonia and the U.K. 

No matter where you choose to explore, our passion for showing you the world shines through. We encourage you to head off on a journey of discovery in every destination to really get the most out of every moment of your holiday. 

Enrichment Facilities

A Fred. Olsen cruise is about making the most of your time away from it all. This is why we provide a variety of experiences, events and classes for our guests, to ensure that every day enjoyed on board our smaller ships is as rewarding, varied and memorable as possible.

Activities vary from cruise to cruise, and are highlighted each day in your copy of The Daily Times. They could include insightful lectures from expert guest speakers; engaging arts and crafts sessions, such as watercolour tutorials; dancing and singing lessons; and much more.

LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Lots of our guests like to use their sea days or longer voyages to try their hand at something they haven't done before, so we host sociable activities like learning to play the ukulele or singing in a choir. Or you can refine your craft skills, practice your watercolours and learn some photography skills in our new Olsen Art Studio.

Gratuities

Gratuities for our dedicated service team are not included in the cost of your holiday. While tipping is entirely at your discretion, we pride ourselves on the service offered to our guests, and are confident that you’ll wish to reward staff on board for the attention you receive.

Typically, gratuities are charged at £5.00 per person, per day for guests aged 12 and over. This amount is split equally between your stewardess and restaurant waiter, and will be automatically added to your on board account. While very much appreciated, these gratuities are voluntary, and therefore can be adjusted or removed completely at Guest Services on board the ship if you wish; and you are welcome to tip personally if you prefer.

For your convenience, you can also pre-pay gratuities before your cruise. We'll check with you at the time of booking if you’d like to pay prior to your cruise.

Pre-payment can be made anytime up to 5 days before departure by simply calling our Guest Services team on 0800 0355 145 or e-mail [email protected]

Our Guest Services team are available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
