As Balmoral guides you on this circumnavigation of Iceland, taking in remote waterways and destinations along the way, you’ll experience the scenic wonder of this remarkable country to the full.[ReadMoreMob] From Reykjavik, you can tour to the Golden Circle and watch bursting geysers and cascading waterfalls make their mark on the landscape, while Ísafjörður is your gateway to the beautiful westfjords and the bird haven of Vigur Island. After Ísafjörður, enjoy views of Hornstrandir’s majestic mountains and the jagged, tooth-like peaks of Drangaskörð.

At Akureyri, opt to see the splendour of the Godafoss and Dettifoss waterfalls or, for an experience of a lifetime, go whale watching on the lookout Humpback and Minke whales, dolphins and porpoises in their natural habitat. Finally, after revelling in the beauty of Eyjafjörður, pretty Hrísey and Grimsey, and cruising by Borgarfjordur Eystri – home to a large population of elves, according to local folklore – there’s a visit Seyðisfjörður. Here you you can savour scenes of towering mountains and colourful houses, or perhaps tour to the enchanting Skálanes Nature and Heritage Centre.

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.
