A journey of discovery in the Canaries sees Balmoral visit four beautiful islands, where a wealth of breathtaking attractions await. Astonishing volcanic landscapes beg for exploration; you could marvel at wonders such as La Palma’s Teneguia Volcano and Tenerife’s majestic Mount Teide; and the soaring peaks and open lava fields of the imposing Fire Mountains in lunar-like Lanzarote. On Gran Canaria, impressive mountainous scenery and the rolling sand dunes of Maspalomas await you too.[ReadMoreMob]

Alternatively, perhaps opt to uncover the secrets of enchanted forests in La Palma and the mysterious pyramids and poison gardens of Güímar in Tenerife; delight in the culture and beauty of Gran Canaria’s picturesque valleys and pretty towns; and, during your time in Lanzarote, explore the subterranean treasures of unique lava tunnels and caverns. After your Canarian adventures, there’s also a call at Madeira, a chance to explore fragrant botanical gardens and scenic walking trails, or even visit the Cabo Girão sea cliff for spectacular Atlantic Ocean views. And, in between visits to these fabulous islands, you might be lucky enough to witness Leonids meteors streaking across the night sky from the comfort of your smaller ship – a rare, simply unforgettable cruise experience.  

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.

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.
