We have done several cruises with Fred Olsen line on the Balmoral and compared to other cruise lines we have used , they come out head and shoulders above the rest in all categories.
The cabins are very comfortable and cleaned daily, in fact I don't think I have ever seen such a clean vessel.
The food was absolutely superb and really too plentiful, there was always something going for nearly every taste,and plenty of comfortable seating areas to relax in.
The crew could not be faulted in any way, always happy , clean, and polite
The entertainment was quite first class and very varied, the best of all was the section of the program where the crew provided the entertainment for the evening, absolutely incredible and very talented..
In future , when we want a cruise we will always pick the Balmoral, regardless of where it is going .
