Ship Facts: Balmoral Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Balmoral Deck Plans
Norweigean fjords
This was our first trip with a smaller cruise ship having been on previos ones carrying 3000 plus passengers.We found everything about this ship very pleasing.

Staff were excellent throughout,always smiling.

Ship was kept very clean at all times.

Food was good in Main restaurant and Palms Cafe (only ones we ate in)

Cabin was plenty big enough with very good hanging space in wardrobes, more room than on other ships.

Entertainment very varied,something to suit everyone from shows to quiet corners with background music.

This was a very friendly ship, more suited to the slighter older generation.

We would definately travel with Fred Olsen again.

Drinks onboard were very reasonable compared to other ships.

Tours were very expensive so most of our time ashore was independant.

Norway itself was a bit pricey although stunning scenery throughout.
