The Olsen Way Highlights

Your escape to the Canaries, Spain and Madeira includes visits to four islands and the city of La Coruña. Experience sandy beaches, volcanic landscapes and floral scenes, all while enjoying the region’s balmy climate.

Balmoral’s smaller size makes it possible to dock closer to the centre of Funchal, where an extended stay gives you plenty of time to take in the colourful gardens, ride the historic cable car and watch people tobogganing down the narrow, winding streets.

Other highlights include Lanzarote’s active volcano, Tenerife’s Mount Teide and the Olsen family-owned Tecina Hotel on La Gomera.

Our Journey Planners have carefully curated a programme of events with special guest speakers.

Our Scenic Discoveries allow you to enjoy seeing the world from the unique perspective of our ship.

As we explore the World, you'll have the chance to sample treats of the regions we visit.

There’s very little in the natural world more beautiful than a clear night sky, sunrise or sunset seen from the sea.

Find out what it takes to run a cruise ship and what life is like for those who call Balmoral home.

As well as our signature experiences, we have a host of other activities for you to enjoy whilst you are on-board.


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

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