Beautiful Balmoral is small enough to navigate Europe’s most picturesque waterways so guests can enjoy hours of scenic cruising. Balmoral retains a warm, civilised atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space, including an al-fresco restaurant.

Fred. Olsen’s new Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs), the latest addition to our fleet of smaller ships. Now standing by to take you even closer. 

These exciting crafts take guests away from the tourist trails to see the natural wonders, stunning beaches, spectacular coastlines and much more – in a way few∘ others get to enjoy. An unmissable, immersive journey of exploration.  

RIB experiences are available in selected ports and areas of scenic cruising in some of the world’s most beautiful regions. These include Norway, Iceland Greenland, Denmark, Sweden, The Maldives, Monaco, France, Estonia and the U.K. 

No matter where you choose to explore, our passion for showing you the world shines through. We encourage you to head off on a journey of discovery in every destination to really get the most out of every moment of your holiday.

Gratuities: Gratuities for our dedicated service team are not included in the cost of your holiday. While tipping is entirely at your discretion, we pride ourselves on the service offered to our guests, and are confident that you’ll wish to reward staff on board for the attention you receive. Typically, gratuities are charged at £5.00 per person, per day for guests aged 12 and over. This amount is split equally between your stewardess and restaurant waiter, and will be automatically added to your on board account. While very much appreciated, these gratuities are voluntary, and therefore can be adjusted or removed completely at Guest Services on board the ship if you wish; and you are welcome to tip personally if you prefer. For your convenience, you can also pre-pay gratuities before your cruise. We’ll check with you at the time of booking if you’d like to pay prior to your cruise. Pre-payment can be made anytime up to 5 days before departure by simply calling our Guest Services team on 0800 0355 145 or e-mail guest.services@fredolsen.co.uk Our Guest Services team are available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
