Sail Date: Apr 2017
Cabin: Superior Outside

I selected this cruise as an ideal Spring getaway to interesting parts of the Mediterranean, some of which I hadn't previously visited.

The "Balmoral" is my favorite of the Fred. Olsen cruise ships. it is a fine looking ship, in good condition, spacious but small enough to enter ports that the more modern, large simply couldn't visit.

I had booked a twin cabin on a single occupancy basis on deck 6. It was well positioned for easy access to the main features of the ship. It was of reasonable size, had a large picture window and had excellent air conditioning. There was more than ample storage, had a safe, tea/coffee making facilites and interactive television. It was fully serviced twice daily to a high standard.

Superior Outside

Cabin B

Clean, neat and tidy and well serviced. More than ample storage. The air conditioning, safe,tea/coffee making facilities and the interactive television were useful. The picture window made the cabin bright and great for sight-seeing.
