SHIP Information

The largest and most recent addition to the Fred. Olsen fleet, Balmoral offers passengers a classic, relaxing cruise experience. First launched in 1987, and refitted in 2017, she can accommodate over 1,300 passengers across 10 decks.

Blending modern and traditional elements, she provides a mixture of casual and formal dining across four restaurants and cafés. A host of entertainment and relaxation is on offer, including cabaret, dancing, live music and spa treatments.

Highlights

On selected cruises, special interest themed excursions are on offer, where a range of activities and entertainment will be provided, regarding a particular point of interest or subject. A guest speaker will talk about their subject and 'Shore Tours' will take place. A 'Shore Tour' is a tour of a particular destination that will help bring to life and give a better understanding of the particular theme/subject that is being taught.



One example is a tour of the wine regions of Bordeaux and Rioja while wine expert Jilly Goolden delivers talks onboard and there is the opportunity to take part in wine-tasting activities and entertainment.



The majority of theme programs are free of charge, however relevant materials and 'Shore Tours' may have an additional cost.

Dining

Dining onboard Balmoral is spread across four restaurants and cafés, with fixed and casual dining options, as well as formal or more intimate surroundings.



Enrichment

Fred. Olsen offers an interesting array of guest speakers lectures discussing various subjects including upcoming destinations. These are available on the Vista-themed cruises.

Entertainment

Entertainment onboard Balmoral is varied with large selection of lounges, each with their own atmosphere. From live comedians to card rooms, you're bound to find something to entertain yourself whilst onboard, whether you're looking to have some fun, or just relax for a bit.

Health & Fitness

A selection of health, fitness, beauty and relaxation areas are available onboard. From The Atlantis Spa & Salon to the state-of-the-art Fitness Centre, where you can work up a sweat in one of the many fitness classes on offer.

Kid & Teens

During the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays only, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines offer organised and hosted children's activities within the Little Skippers Club subject to a minimum number of children booked on the cruise. The Little Skippers Club supervises children from ages 5-11, with Children's Hosts arranging meet and greets with parents and children when they embark.

The Little Skippers Club offers a wide range of activities including games, contests, scavenger hunts, sports and fitness instruction, arts and crafts, pizza making and cooking sessions, pool and swimming sessions, discos, karaoke and kids bingo.

Useful to Know
Gratuities

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
