Relaxation & Fitness on Balmoral
Cruising with Fred. Olsen is about being able to rest, relax and leave all the cares and stresses of life at home behind, and on board Balmoral it's easy to take your mind off it all. You'll find there's plenty of ways to unwind, from simply talking a sunrise stroll along the promenade to visiting the Atlantis Spa for an indulgent treatment accompanied by beautiful scenic views. With fantastic fitness facilities on board too, you don't have to stray too far from your healthy lifestyle while on holiday either.
Whether you start your day with a relaxing stroll in the sea breeze, catch some sunshine on an afternoon meander, or end the night under the stars, there's nothing quite like enjoying an invigorating walk around the open promenade. Relaxing by the large, heated pools or in the bubbling jacuzzis on Balmoral's Lounge and Marquee decks is the perfect way to make the most of your lazy days at sea too.
To help guests work-off some energy and their holiday indulgences, or simply stay in shape as they explore the world, Balmoral's Fitness Centre is fully equipped with all the modern facilities and equipment you expect to find in your gym back home. We also offer a variety of fitness classes run by our fully qualified Fitness Instructors, including yoga, aerobics and Pilates, that cater to all levels of fitness and experience.
