Balmoral is the jewel in Fred. Olsen’s crown

Olsen's crown as the largest and newest ship in their fleet. Yet it upholds this cruise line's reputation for intimate, friendly cruising thanks to its small size and attentive crew.

Two of the nine decks are saved for leisure: head sunny side up to the top deck, a sun trap with plenty of loungers and a pool where you can work on your tan. Meanwhile the Lounge Deck is, as its name suggests, ideal for lounging around: perhaps enjoy the passing views with a drink in the delightful Palms Café or catch a show at the Neptune Lounge.

You can also see if Lady Luck is on your side at the informal gaming tables, dine alfresco at the poolside bar or try a fitness class for a change of pace.
