Whilst scenic cruising on Balmoral, and during time spent ashore on rugged and remote isles, you’ll experience the beauty of Scotland to the full. As you sail Scottish waters, marvel at the dramatic rock formations of natural wonders such as the Old Man of Hoy, The Needle, Dutchman’s Cap and Fingal’s Cave, and the wild, unspoilt landscapes of the Small Isles, Orkney, Shetland, the Isle of Skye and Isle of Lewis. Look out for seabirds perched on sea stacks and cliffs, and porpoise, dolphins and whales in the waters along Scotland’s north coast too, with the assistance of our on board ORCA representatives.[ReadMore]

Visits to Orkney, Shetland and the isles of Skye and Lewis also provide opportunities for even closer encounters with their natural treasures. Seabird havens await, with Shetland’s RSPB Sumburgh Head – where fulmars, puffins and various other bird species live and breed – a particular highlight. Explore the coastal scenes of Northmavine at Shetland’s northernmost point perhaps; and uncover the fascinating history of Orkney at the ancient sites of Skara Brae, Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar. Skye’s craggy coastline will beg for exploration too, while centuries-old castles and beautiful Hebridean countryside are yours to seek out on Lewis.

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.
