The perfect short break, this five-night escape provides a taste of fjordland exploration with Fred. Olsen. Sailing from Newcastle means you won’t have to wait long to experience the wonders of the fjords; after a relaxing day at sea, your first opportunity to step foot on Norwegian shores awaits at Olden. Take time to enjoy this picturesque village, perhaps explore the Briksdalen Valley to see wonders such as Briksdal Glacier and Lovatnet Lake on tour, or ride the Loen Skylift for panoramic views of Nordfjord.[ReadMore]

Upon departure from Olden, experience memorable scenic cruising; Balmoral will show you the beauty of Nordfjord from its glassy waters, and take you past Hornelen – Europe’s highest sea cliff – at sunset. Finally, a visit to Bergen is a chance to take in the city’s many attractions. You could hike up Bergen’s Mount Fløyen with a local and discover captivating views of the city and surrounding fjordland, explore the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, ride the Fløibanen funicular railway and much more, for a memorable end to your time in Norway.

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.
