Morocco’s unique cultures, traditions and influences are at the forefront of your discovery on this cruise, as Balmoral takes you to a string of captivating cities to experience their way of life to the full. Any visit to Casablanca is memorable, so your overnight stay is sure to be a highlight. You’ve ample time to see sights such as the majestic Hassan II Mosque, and enjoy flavoursome Tagine cuisine here. Or perhaps you’ll opt to tour to Marrakech for bustling souks, religious monuments and the famous Medina, alive with energetic markets, street food vendors, artists and all manner of performers. Animated souks are yours to explore in Tangier too, where soaring minarets and domes, and a legendary Kasbah – once the sultan's walled palace and gardens – also await.[ReadMore]

A visit to Agadir is a chance to explore Souk El Had and try local flavours of mint tea, fruits and spices; and even learn about how Argan Oil is made, meeting the ladies who crush the nuts from endemic argan trees. Agadir is also your gateway to the Atlas Mountains; on tour, you could trek the foothills and witness some of Morocco’s most magnificent scenery. Away from Moroccan shores, you’ll see how Moorish influences have helped shaped some Spanish cities, such as Cádiz. The Moors’ unmistakable style is showcased through a number of architectural treasures in Cádiz, from centuries-old houses to landmarks such as Gran Teatro Falla. In Lisbon, Portugal’s captivating capital, you’ll find similarly impressive examples of such architectural delights in the city’s enchanting Moorish quarter too.  

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.
