Cruising with Fred. Olsen is about being able to rest and relax away from the stresses of life at home and on board Balmoral it is easy to take your mind off it all.
From the luxurious Atlantis Spa, offering a range of treatments such as massages, manicures and hairdressing, to the bubbling jacuzzis and large promenade which is perfect for relaxing strolls in the morning sunshine or under moonlight, you’ll find there are plenty of places to unwind on board the ship.
Making the most of your time on board to relax and indulge doesn’t mean you have to stray too far from your healthy lifestyle either, thanks to Balmoral’s fantastic fitness facilities. You can work to a familiar routine or have a go at something new in our fully equipped Fitness Centre, which hosts a number of energetic classes; or swim lengths in one of the large heated pools – a great way to stay in shape.
Atlantis Spa & Salon
We’re confident you’ll feel thoroughly relaxed and spoilt on board Balmoral, but if you’re after a little extra pampering, head to Highland Deck 10 and immerse yourself in the soothing surroundings of the Atlantis Spa and Salon – located next door to the Fitness Centre. Here you’ll find everything to refresh and revitalise you, including manicures, massages, waxing and hair styling and colouring. If you’re looking to unwind after a workout in the gym or a busy day ashore, or simply wanting to treat yourself to a new look ready for formal night, the experts in the Atlantis Spa and Salon will have you covered.

With so much time to relax on board and sumptuous meals to enjoy every day, we know it’s important for you to have somewhere to stay in shape. Balmoral’s Fitness Centre – located at the front of the ship on Highland Deck 10 – is fully equipped with all the modern facilities and equipment you’d expect to find in your gym back home, including treadmills, rowing machines, exercise bikes and free weights. Classes including yoga, aerobics and pilates regularly take place in the Fitness Centre too, catering to all levels of fitness and experience.
Start the day with a quick run or row, or perhaps enjoy a full workout while enjoying the view out over the bow of the ship – perfect for burning-off those indulgences from the night before!
Swimming Pool & Jacuzzis
Keep fit by swimming a few lengths, or cool down after relaxing in the sunshine on deck in either of Balmoral’s large, heated pools. Located in the centre of Marquee Deck 11 and at the stern of the ship on Lounge Deck 7, both pools are surrounded by sun loungers and have two bubbling Jacuzzis close-by – a welcome relief after a busy and exciting day ashore.
As well as offering a fantastic range of facilities, lounges, bars and restaurants, Balmoral also benefits from extensive outside deck space which guests are free to explore at their leisure. The Promenade – which extends all the way around Lounge Deck 7 – is perfect for starting your day with a relaxing stroll in the sea breeze, catching some sunshine on an afternoon meander, and enjoying romantic after-dinner strolls under moonlight.
There are often games of shuffleboard or deck quoits taking place on the Promenade too, which you’re always welcome to join. Just don’t forget to look up from time to time, as you never know what stunning sights are coming up on the horizon.
