The Olsen Way Highlights

For the first time ever, we will be sailing to Antarctica. This incredible voyage has been specially planned to enable you to get closer to some of the most fascinating parts of the world with Balmoral, as she docks in locations that larger ships cannot.

This once-in-a-lifetime journey gives you a rare chance to capture the rugged, icy landscapes of the Antarctic Peninsula. Other scenic cruising highlights include the Patagonian Fjords in Chile, the rocky headland of Cape Horn and the world renowned Panama Canal.

On tours, you will have chances to visit;

  • Iguazu National Park and Machu Picchu or Lake Titicaca
  • The iconic sites of Rio include the Christ the Redeemer Statue, Copacabana beach and Sugarloaf Mountain
  • Seek out the unique wildlife of the Galapagos Islands
  • In Buenos Aires, you can learn how to Tango
  • The mix of Classic cars, Spanish colonial architecture and Latin Dance is unmistakably that of Havana

New On Board Signature Experiences

Being such a special Grand Voyage, our Journey Planners have designed a unique programme of Signature Experiences which will allow you to discover real insights about the culture and nature of the places we are visiting, so you can arrive in each destination fully prepared to get the most out of your visit.

Our Journey Planners have curated a programme of events with special guest speakers, including Simon Weston CBE.

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

As we explore South America, you'll have the chance to sample treats of the region.

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.
