Holiday Overview

Famous for its breathtakingly beautiful fjords, world-class seafood, Viking history and peaceful, picture-perfect port towns, Norway is a wonderful holiday destination. Somehow, it’s even better when explored aboard one of Fred Olsens flagship cruise liners, The Balmoral, named after the Scottish Residence of the British Royal Family. A smaller but mighty ship that takes you further into the Fjords where not many other cruise liners can.


Enjoy a summers cruise through the Fjords, towering mountain scenery, the fresh waterfall sprays on your face, local fishing towns and stunning sunsets, this tour takes you cruising through the 26 mile long Lysefjord, the city of Bergen, the ‘King of the Fjord’ Sognefjord and many more. 


Throughout your trip, you’ll be accompanied by the Limitless Team, who will provide care, support and assistance as and when you require it. On the ship, your cabin is fully accessible, as are the vast majority of the Balmoral's other facilities. With several restaurants, swimming pools, entertainment venues, a steam room and sauna, there’s plenty to enjoy when you spend the day at sea
