Holiday Information

Cruising into the heart of the fjordland is the best way to appreciate the spectacular scenery of this other-worldly setting.

These expertly crafted Norwegian fjords cruises showcase the very best of this breathtaking part of the world, taking advantage of this smaller ship ready-made for navigating size-restricted waterways, to bring awe-inspiring natural wonders and enchanting destinations closer to you.

Balmoral
Balmoral

A short, yet highly rewarding taste of the fjordland, this five-night foray to Norway packs-in scenic cruising of gorgeous waterways and visits to two charming destinations.

Experience the unique scenery of the idyllic Lysefjord, after an overnight sail from Newcastle; then visit Eidfjord, gateway to the wonders of Hardangerfjord, the ‘Queen of the Fjords’.

There’s a memorable journey along Hardangerfjord, and the lush-green Ulvikafjord, too; before Bergen presents its abundant attractions, such as the Troldhaugen Museum and Mount Fløyen.

More info

From marvelling at the dramatic landscapes and incredible natural wonders of awe-inspiring fjords to immersing yourself in the history and culture of enchanting destinations, you’ll experience it all while spending less than a week away.

Enjoying a taste of the fjordland in a shorter time is possible thanks to your departure port’s convenient proximity to Norway. Exploration begins, after an overnight sail from Newcastle, with a memorable scenic cruise of the idyllic Lysefjord. Your gentle glide along the glassy waters, which are only accessible to smaller ships, is sure to leave you captivated, presenting views of mighty mountains and cliffs and mysterious rock formations.

A visit to pretty Eidfjord, deep within Hardangerfjord, is your first chance to step ashore. Perhaps take a tour to the Vøringsfossen, one of Norway’s most famous waterfalls; or head to Lekve Juice and Cider Farm to sample locally produced delights. Opt for a kayaking adventure and you’ll admire Hardangerfjord’s scenic splendour from a unique perspective.

The picturesque village of Eidfjord, set within the breath-taking Hardangerfjord, is a gateway to some of the region's most spectacular natural features and possibly the most beautiful place in the Norwegian fjords. Located beneath a back-drop of soaring, snow-peaked mountains, engraved with rivers and waterfalls, Eidfjord begs for exploration and presents some of the fjordland's greatest photo opportunities The village’s tranquil feel extends to the lush fields that run for miles, meandering through clusters of wood-slat homes in ice-cream hues.

Seven hills and seven fjords frame Hanseatic Bergen, a city steeped in maritime heritage. Of Bergen’s many attractions, the 900-year-old UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf is a standout highlights. A delight to explore, the Bryggen's cobbled stairways are lined with traditional half-timbered buildings and climb away from the waterfront, leading to curious open spaces that are often overflowing with colourful flowers that perfume the air.

Bergen has a vibrant fish market and hosts one of Norway's biggest cultural events of the year, the Bergen International Festival. The city was once the home of Norway's most famous composer, Edvard Grieg, and the Troldhaugen Museum is devoted to his life’s work.

Refurbished in 2017, Balmoral is the largest of Fred. Olsen's smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ships – with capacity for up to 1,350 guests – yet is still small enough to navigate narrow waterways such as Kiel Canal and bring inspirational sights and experiences closer to you. Like the rest of the fleet, Balmoral retains a warm, welcoming atmosphere and features comfortable accommodation and lounges, stylish restaurants and plenty of open-deck space.

Balmoral is named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, and the Scottish theme runs throughout the main dining venues – the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey – where guests can enjoy tantalising menus prepared by expert chefs.

Featuring 710 well-appointed rooms and suites and a selection of comfortable lounges, bars and inviting public areas which have been extensively refitted and improved as part of a fleet-wide refurbishment programme, Balmoral provides guests with ample space in which to relax and share a memorable cruise experience with hundreds, not thousands, of fellow travellers. And, as guests have come to expect, there is always an array of superb entertainment on offer throughout the day, from lectures and hobby classes to live cabaret and comedians, ensuring you can make the most of your time on board.

The flagship in this fleet features several stylish, spacious and comfortable bars and lounges, providing plenty of choice and variety.
