A seven-night discovery of Norway at its most spectacular, showcasing some of the fjordland’s greatest sights and highlights. Balmoral takes you on a journey into beautiful waterways to witness their wonder; see Lysefjord’s canyon of steep, rugged mountains and the towering, tree-topped mountains of Maurangerfjord, and absorb the springtime scenes of Hardangerfjord’s verdant, rolling valleys. Within picturesque Nordfjord, the sight of Hornelen – North Europe’s tallest sea cliff – awaits you too.

There’s a visit to Andalsnes, from where you can ride the Rauma Railway for an up-close look at the beauty of Romsdalfjord’s mountainous landscapes, and to explore the ‘path of the trolls’ at Trollveggan and Trollstigen. A ride on the Fløibanen funicular railway is the best way to take in the scenery of Bergen, where you can also hike with a local and discover attractions such as the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf. A chance to kayak the glassy waters of Hardangerfjord from Eidfjord is not to be missed, while from Olden you could choose to seek out the Briksdal glacier, or experience the unspoilt views of Nordfjord from the Loen Skylift.

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.

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
