About the Ship

Balmoral is the smallest ship in our fleet and is well-loved by all of our teams, and long-standing guests. She has wonderful facilities - six beautiful restaurants, seven bars and lounges, two pools and lovely wide open decks which are perfect for when Balmoral is scenic cruising.

The Spey and Avon restaurants offer spectacular views out to sea while you dine, and the Observatory Lounge really comes to life with our Signature Experiences of scenic cruising, or our Ship at Sea sessions.

Her smaller size is a huge asset when it comes to creating itineraries that go off the beaten track and into less visited ports and waterways. Balmoral journeys along rivers and right into the heart of cities such as Bordeaux, or transits through spectacular waterways like the Kiel Canal.

Balmoral's crest proudly replicates the British royal family's Scottish residence Balmoral Castle, with a nod to Fred. Olsen's historic links with Scotland and where the family still have an estate today.
