After settling in on board Balmoral during a day at sea, you’ll spend a Saturday sailing Oslofjord, past the Olsen family home in Hvitsten, and exploring Oslo. The Norwegian capital’s attractions are plentiful, from Viking museums and burial grounds to artistic highlights such as the Vigeland Sculpture Park and the Munch Museum. Perhaps visit the Holmenkollen Ski Museum and Tower to discover more about Norway’s national sport.[ReadMore]

On Sunday morning you’ll wake up in Sweden, where Gothenburg awaits you. Thanks to her smaller size, Balmoral will dock in the centre of this city, making it easy for you simply step ashore and discover its many highlights. Streets and squares flanked by elegant, historical architecture, as well as the Gothenburg’s pretty parks and gardens, showcase the history, culture and beauty of the city and provide plenty of memorable sights to take in as you enjoy relaxing Easter Sunday strolls.

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.
