All About Balmoral – Cruise Traveller

All About Balmoral

We’re pleased to be adding Fred Olsen Cruises to our stable of cruise lines in August 2022. So in anticipation, we’d like to introduce one of their original ships – Balmoral – so you can learn a little more about this quintessential British holiday brand and her hardware.

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.

Take a quick look at Balmoral. You may be surprised at how much she has to offer her 1325 guests.
