Elegant, calm and homely, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Balmoral prides itself on offering one of the most pleasant and comfortable cruises around.

Balmoral is named after the world-famous Scotland home of the Royal Family. Akin to the rest of the fleet, Fred. Olsen's 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.

Cuisine and Dining on Balmoral

Blending the boundaries between entertainment and relaxation, Balmoral prefers quality over quantity and all facilities are 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. Al Fresco dining at The Grill for example makes a superb dining option when the weather is warm. Freshly prepared al fresco cuisine is served under blue skies with stunning views. Choose from starters of seared scallops and pan fried panciotti to main dishes of succlent prime steak or mixed seafood. The Grill is a popular dining option onboard and bookings must be made in advance whilst onboard. Please note a supplement applies.

Along with every meal, the Balmoral's wealth of fine wine 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 onboard 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 Balmoral

Entertainment onboard 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.
