The Olsen Way Highlights

The destinations on your cruise have been selected for their ability to showcase the cultural and culinary traditions of Spain and Portugal.

You will be able to taste authentic food and drink in its place of origin, including Pasteis de Nata in Lisbon; paella in Valencia; tapas and Jerez sherry in Cádiz; port wine in Oporto; and olive oil in Málaga.

Many cultural highlights await your discovery too, including chances to visit Pablo Picasso’s house in his birthplace, Málaga, and learn the art of flamenco with a local Bailaora (dancer) from Cádiz. You can also admire architectural delights such as Moorish buildings in Andalusia and decorative Azulejo tiles in Portugal.

 

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.
