Deeper within the fjordland, you’ll get to not only see the natural wonders of Norway’s scenic waterways, but learn of some of their tales and place in local folklore too.[ReadMoreMob] With this in mind, the visits to Andalsnes and Skjolden are bound to be highlights of your adventure; from Skjolden, you could tour to visit the home of the giants at Jutenheimen, while Andalsnes is your gateway to the Trollveggan ‘Troll Wall’ and Trollstigen ‘Troll Road, surrounded by beautiful mountainous scenery.

There’s also a memorable visit to Olden, for chances to go in search of magnificent glacier arms on tour, or perhaps ride the Loen Skylift to the peak of Mount Hoven for unforgettable fjordland views. You can revel in the views from atop Mount Aksla in Alesund, and see mountains, valleys and waterfalls via the Rauma Railway from Andalsnes too. Plus, in typical Fred. Olsen style, you’ll get to experience scenic cruising amongst the rugged landscapes and impressive landmarks, such as Hornelen sea cliff, of incredible waterways including Nordfjord, Sognefjord, Hjorundfjord and Fjaerlandsfjord.

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.
