Captain Rommel Pineda

Captain Rommel Pineda

Many of our wonderful staff have quite a life story to tell, and one of the most inspirational is that of Captain Rommel Pineda. Join us for a little look at Rommel’s remarkable seafaring career, which has seen him work his way up from Deck Cadet to become the very first Filipino Captain to sail under an international flag on a cruise ship.

See South America in style

For an incredible start to 2023, Balmoral will embark on an epic exploration of South America and the Antarctic peninsula. On her 78-night voyage, guests will see iconic sites, such as the Christ the Redeemer statue, along with fascinating and rarely-visited parts of the world, such as the Galapagos Islands and ice fields of Elephant Island.

As the winter gloom has set in your wanderlust may have you yearning for warmer climes. This time next year, Balmoral will be sailing away for some warmth, en route to beautiful Bermuda. Sunshine, sandy beaches and island scenery await guests on board – are you tempted to join them?
