This discovery of German waterways and cities is unique, a sailing expertly planned with a focus on maritime traditions and specially timed to coincide with the world’s largest sailing event. An extended call at Kiel is the centrepiece of your itinerary; here you’ve a chance to enjoy all the charm, tradition and excitement of the final day of the Kieler Woche extravaganza. You can amble around the harbour, where historic tall ships will be docked and proudly on show, experience the authentic German festivity of the occasion, and watch the evening fireworks that bring the event to a close.[ReadMore]

Elsewhere in Germany, there are plenty of opportunities for you to delve into rich maritime history. Discover naval bases in Rostock – on tour from Warnemunde – and in Hamburg, which is also home to a fascinating International Maritime Museum; take in Bremen’s imposing World War II U-boat bunkers; and visit the decommissioned British submarine-turned-museum in Sassnitz. Enjoy ample time in Hamburg, to visit attractions such as the Rathaus, towering St Nikolai Church and Miniatur Wunderland, and take a boat tour of Alster Lake too, and perhaps seek out sights including the UNESCO-listed Market Square, 15th century town hall and medieval Schnoor district in Bremen. What’s more, thanks to Balmoral’s smaller size, you’ll also experience memorable scenic cruising along the impressive maritime engineering feat that is the Kiel Canal.

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.
