Appreciate the beauty and diversity of Scandinavia, on a late summer sojourn taking in some of the region’s most scenic places.[ReadMoreMob] In Sweden, you’ll sail between the craggy islands and islets of the sprawling Stockholm Archipelago, and get to explore these waters on a boat tour from Stockholm, where other highlights to seek-out include the ABBA Museum and Royal Palace. See picturesque Gothenburg via the city’s canals aboard a traditional Paddan boat too, and discover attractions such as the Maritiman Museum and Götaplatsen Square; and visit the beautiful island of Gotland for a glimpse into Sweden’s Hanseatic heritage in historic Visby.

Many delights also await you during time in Denmark. In Copenhagen, you can experience another romantic boat ride along scenic city canals, though you may opt to explore on foot to see the Danish capital’s famous sights, from the famous Little Mermaid and Nyhavn waterfront district to the Royal palaces. On the rugged island of Bornholm, the cobbled streets of Rønne – lined with ochre-coloured half-timbered buildings – await your exploration. Alternatively, tour to the dramatic ruins of Hammershus Slot. There’s a visit to Finland too; you’ll be charmed by the centuries-old monuments, architecture and waterways of Turku, and enjoy a glimpse into the heritage and local lifestyle of the Åland archipelago in Mariehamn.

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.

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.
