Balmoral & Braemar Schedule Amendments

Balmoral in Dover

We have recently made some changes to our 2022 and 2023 cruise schedule with Balmoral returning to service on 2nd May 2022 and Braemar now coming back on 28th April 2023.

If you have a booking on one of the cruises which has been affected by these changes, we will be writing to you with some personalised options over the coming weeks. We thought you might have some questions in the meantime, so the purpose of this page is to answer as many of them as we can.

We will update the page regularly with all the latest information. As we are working through the cruises in date order, you will be able to see which guests we are currently speaking with.

If you were previously booked on one of these cruises, you will find some personlised alternative cruise options listed below.

Once you know which sailing you would like to transfer to, please call our team on 0800 0355 122 or send an email to res.services@fredolsen.co.uk and we will make all the necessary arrangements. The offers below are based on transferring your cruise to a similar grade of cabin to the one you had previously booked, our team will check availability for you when you call.

What are my other options?
Of course, we understand that the options above might not be quite right for you. If that is the case, we would love for you to sail with us again so the following choices are also available:

1. Transfer to any other cruise already on sale – with an additional 10% of your cruise value added by us.
2. Hold your money with us while you decide on an alternative cruise. Again, we will add 10% in value of this cruise to spend on any other sailing once you have decided.

If there are no suitable alternatives, you can of course have a full refund - with no quibbles.

If I transfer to a cruise with extra nights, will there be any additional costs?
There will be no additional cruise fare for any offers with extra nights if you transfer to the same cabin grade on your new cruise, however any additional costs outside of the cruise fare such as drinks packages and gratuities will be added to your booking at the usual daily rate. All transfer options are subject to availability.

I was booked onto Corinth Canal or a Braemar fly-cruise – what are my options?

Our Journey Planners are developing a new cruise itinerary for you in our 2023/24 season aboard Braemar. This will match, as closely as possible, the cruise you had previously booked. As you may know, the cruise you were on was very popular and we anticipate the replacement cruise will be the same. With that in mind, we will automatically transfer your booking over to this new cruise to secure you the same cabin. We will be in touch very soon with more information about these new sailings - at this point you can let us know if you are happy with the transfer.

To ensure you get the best service when you call us, we are working through all of the cruises which have been affected, in cruise date order. If you have not heard from us yet, please don't worry, we will be in touch very soon with some personalised options for alternative cruises which we think you might like.

We thought it would be helpful to list all of the cruises, in the order in which we will be contacting our guests - so you will find these below:
