Thanks to Scotland’s convenient proximity to Norway, we can take you on a journey to witness the fjordland’s wonder in less than a week.[ReadMoreMob] On this five-night break, you’ll discover plenty of unforgettable sights and experiences, including scenic fjord cruising on Balmoral. Your smaller ship will take you into wild Hjørundfjord and Nordfjord, to see the summertime splendour of their lush landscapes and rugged mountains, rock formations and valleys; and sail by Hornelen, bringing north Europe’s highest sea cliff into view.

There is time ashore to experience an up-close look at the fjordland’s summer beauty too. You have a chance to see the Briksdal Glacier and experience the uncanny tranquillity of Lovatnet Lake on tour from Olden, or even ride the Loen Skylift for panoramic views of Nordfjord. Meanwhile at Ålesund you can capture postcard-perfect fjordland views by climbing to the top of Mount Aksla or via cable car up Strandfjellet Mountain on a tour. Alternatively, see the best of UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord’s dramatic scenes on foot, or take a boat tour of Hjørundfjord.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 


We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.


We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.


We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.

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.
