Balmoral

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines

As a family-run cruise line, we really take your experience personally. Our Chairman, Fred. Olsen Jnr, is very hands on. It is his passion and attention to the smallest detail that ensures a wonderful journey, each time you sail with us.

While the cruise industry has gone for bigger ships, brimming with more and more people, we have always believed that smaller is better. We treat passengers as guests, we dock at smaller ports in more interesting places and we avoid overcrowding both aboard and ashore. At capacity, our smaller ships will only ever sail with between 900 and 1,400 guests.

We have a small team of specialist itinerary planners. They take great pride in handcrafting each journey, to ensure we show you hidden gems as well as highlights on each of our sailings. It is a passion that has won us the Cruise Critic award for Best Itineraries every year since 2015.

Cruise from eight regional UK ports to hundreds of destinations worldwide in the classic style and comfort of our smaller-sized ships. For most of the year, the ships are based in Britain, with cruises departing from Rosyth (Edinburgh), Newcastle, Liverpool, Dover, Southampton, Portsmouth, Tilbury and Belfast.
