Discover a collection of classic cities in the Baltic, including captivating capitals and the ‘jewel in the region’s crown’ and experience their beauty, diverse cultures and unique histories.[ReadMoreMob] An overnight stay in St Petersburg is an outstanding highlight of this itinerary. After sailing in via the River Neva, viewing archetypal golden domes en route, have time to see iconic sites such as Peterhof Palace, the Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood and much more, plus enjoy an evening at the Russian ballet, with a chance to meet the soloist after their performance. After St Petersburg, there’s a memorable visit to Oslo; enjoy a momentous sailing past the Olsen family home on the Oslofjord, and then seek-out the attractions of Norway’s capital from the Opera House and the National Gallery – home of Edvard Munch’s The Scream – to Vigeland Sculpture Park.

In Denmark, another attraction-packed Scandinavian capital awaits your exploration. Balmoral will dock close to the centre of Copenhagen, so you can simply step foot off the gangway and wander off to find the sights of the Nyhavn district, Tivoli Gardens, the famous Little Mermaid and more. Perhaps visit the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces to learn Danish Royal heritage. There are also visits to the Latvian capital of Riga, where the symbolic Freedom Movement and the Old Town are not-to-be-missed, and Tallinn – Estonia’s fairytale-esque capital, where you’re sure to be enchanted by the preserved Old Town and centuries-old wonders such as the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and Toompea Castle. Enjoy a taste of Finnish culture in Helsinki too; you’ll get to appreciate the art and architecture of this pretty city and sample some of traditional cuisine, while you could even relax like a local at a sauna spa.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Service with a smile

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

Balmoral, carrying up to 1,350 guests is small enough to navigate narrow waterways such as Kiel Canal and bring inspirational sights and experiences closer to you.

Like the rest of the fleet, Balmoral retains a warm, welcoming atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation and lounges, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space.
