On this circumnavigation of Iceland, you’re in for an unforgettable insight into the country’s geology and geothermal activity, witnessed in its thundering waterfalls, bursting geysers and incredible landscapes. Reykjavik is your gateway to some of the most iconic wonders; tour from the capital to the Golden Circle to watch geysers and waterfalls make their mark on the landscape, and even snorkel the crystal-clear waters of the Silfra Fissure. Meanwhile, from Ísafjörður, the beautiful scenery of the Westfjords and Vigur Island awaits your exploration.[ReadMore]

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. You could also help ORCA out on deck with their findings as representatives are on board this cruise. Finally, a visit to Seyðisfjörður is a chance to savour the sight of its colourful town, set to a backdrop of mighty mountains, and sample life in Iceland’s remotest regions. There are plenty of scenic cruising highlights on your Icelandic adventure too, including crossing the Arctic Circle to sail by Grímsey Island at sunset, and passing sites immortalised in Icelandic folklore, such as Hornstrandir and the Borgarfjörður Eystri.

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.
