Fred. Olsen are renowned for their excellent customer-care from the friendly crew and brilliant entertainment onboard. You will be delighted by Balmoral, she is a beautiful ship with a home-from-home feel and she offers exceptional mouth-watering menus to suit all tastes. This ship has the best views – head to the Observatory Lounge to gaze from the bow of the ship and out to sea. It is absolutely stunning.
