Elegant, calm and homely, the Fred Olsen Balmoral prides itself on offering one of the most pleasant and comfortable cruises around.
The Balmoral is named after the world-famous Scotland home of the Royal Family. Akin to the rest of the fleet, the Fred Olsen Balmoral is stately in nature with an impressive range of facilities and plenty of room, following an interior refurbishment.
As such a prestigious cruise ship, the Balmoral upholds its reputation by remaining quite reserved and mature. It's a traditional cruise, that is proud of British history and this theme flows throughout the ship, perfectly complementing a relaxing and quiet cruise, without the need for modern frivolities.
Blending the boundaries between entertainment and relaxation, the Fred Olsen Balmoral prefers quality over quantity and ensures each of its facilities is perfectly polished. That means that whether you need a light snack or a filling evening meal, every dining area will do more than enough to accommodate your needs. The Marquee Grill Bar, for example, offers sumptuous snacks in the sun, while you relax back and let the day drift by.
Along with every meal, the Balmoral's wealth of fine wines aims to complement every dish. With vintage selections from all over the world, you'll have no trouble finding the perfect match for that delicious, grilled Red Snapper fillet you've chosen. Whether casual or formal, dining on the Balmoral is always a treat. And it doesn't matter whether you fancy taking Caribbean cruises, Mediterranean cruises or even Baltic and Fjords cruises, the Balmoral can take you there.
Entertainment on the Fred Olsen Balmoral is catered by way of cabarets, comedy and music. The Neptune Bar acts as the lounge of the ship with regular live music, cabaret shows and of course, a full range of your favourite tipples. As you'd expect, everything is aimed towards relaxation, with Shuffleboard, card games and a tremendous library of books giving you plenty of choice whilst you let the day melt away into the sunset.
With '60s and '70s themed nights, graceful ballroom dances and all kinds of shows going on, the Fred Olsen Balmoral is strictly mature but also bursting with pride and quality that will continue to bring you back again and again.

What our customers say
"We have just returned from an Iglu Cruise with Hurtigruten. We would like to say how delighted we were with every aspect of our trip, from first stages of booking through to our return home. In addition we were treated to several amazing viewings of the Northern Lights. Wow!!
We have travelled extensively to many parts of the world, but our Iglu Cruise trip has provided us with memories that will last a lifetime.
Many thanks to you all.,"
