Enjoy a welcome escape from it all, revelling in the peace and seasonal beauty of the Norwegian fjordland in the summer, on a short, yet memorable 5-night break on Balmoral. Your time in Norway will be shorter, but every moment spent in the Olsen family’s homeland will be one to remember. There’s a visit to Andalsnes, gateway to the rugged scenes of the Romsdalen valley. From here you can ride the Rauma Railway for an up-close look at the beauty of Romsdalfjord’s mountainous landscapes, and to explore the ‘path of the trolls’ at Trollveggan and Trollstigen.[ReadMore]

Upon departure from Andalsnes, scenic cruising along Romsdalfjord affords an opportunity to relax and take in views of its forested mountains, valleys and dramatic rocks from on board your smaller ship’s decks. Then, during a visit to Bergen, you’ve a chance to really get under the skin of this historic, charming city. Go for a ramble with a local to see and experience Bergen through their eyes and learn of its past, discover highlights such as Bryggen Wharf and take in views from atop Mount Fløyen, away from the busier vantage points.

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.
