Experience the rewards of smaller ship cruising, but with a mysterious twist, on this unmissable adventure on board Balmoral. After boarding your classic cruise ship in Newcastle, a sense of excitement, intrigue and anticipation will build as you and hundreds – not thousands – of like-minded fellow travellers set sail to well, who knows? As the destinations on this unique 10-night itinerary will be kept a secret until the last possible moment, with your Captain keeping you guessing until you arrive in each port of call.

There’s a chance you’ll take in a place you’ve always wanted to visit; an undiscovered gem; or perhaps a few of Fred. Olsen’s favourites, ports you know and love to visit time and again. Wherever you cruise to, you’re in for a rewarding experience thanks to Balmoral’s ability to bring you closer to the highlights of each destination, and thanks to the sumptuous cuisine, fabulous entertainment and personal, attentive service enjoyed on board. We’ll take care of everything, so all you have to do is relax and make the most of your time away.

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.

Service with a smile

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.
