Our city breaks are crafted with providing some rewarding, well-earned time away from it all in mind, and this short escape is no exception, offering chances to explore two Scandinavian capitals on a five-night cruise.[ReadMoreMob] You’ll get to discover the delights of Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital, first; Balmoral docks within one mile of the city centre, close to sights and attractions such as the famous Little Mermaid, Tivoli Gardens and the Nyhavn district. Don’t miss the many Royal palaces and castles, Copenhagen’s crowning glories.

There’s ample time in Oslo, renowned for its aesthetic delights, too; the Vigeland Sculpture Park, displaying over 200 works from Gustav Vigeland, the National Gallery, home of Edvard Munch’s The Scream, and the Opera House are high on the city’s must-see list. The Akershus Fortress is also well worth a visit, for an insight into Oslo’s medieval heritage. En route to the Norwegian capital, where once again your smaller-ship docks close to the centre, you’ll also be part of a momentous sailing past the Olsen family home on the Oslofjord.

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.

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

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.

Like the rest of the fleet, Balmoral retains a warm, welcoming atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation and lounges, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space.
