Enjoy two relaxing nights on board Balmoral as she sails from Southampton to Newcastle. This short escape is the perfect ‘taster cruise’ for first time Fred. Olsen guests, as well as regular cruisers looking for a relaxing break away from it all.

Although there are no exotic destinations on your itinerary, having time to enjoy all of the benefits of cruising on board a smaller, more intimate Fred. Olsen ship will ensure this short escape is a relaxing and rewarding experience from the moment you step aboard.

In the evenings, indulge with delicious five course dinners prepared and cooked to perfection by our expert chefs, catch a range of fantastic entertainment, then retire to the ample space of your room or suite for a comfortable night’s sleep.

No matter how you choose to make the most of your time on board, you’ll share the same experience with your friends, family and fellow guests that you would on any other Fred. Olsen sailing. And, as usual, the friendly staff will be on hand to care of everything and provide personal, attentive service throughout your cruise.

 

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.

Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

Refurbished in 2017, Balmoral is the largest of Fred. Olsen's smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ships – with capacity for up to 1,350 guests – yet is still 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.
