We chose the Fred Olsen Cruise Line and especially the Balmoral because it could cruise right up into the fiords that we wanted to see. Some of the larger cruise lines cannot do this. Excellent food and service in the Ballindalloch restaurant. Especially from our waiters Pat & Anthony. Excellent service in the Observation Lounge where we spent evenings drinking a cocktail before dinner especially our waiter Charpet. Captain Rommel Pineda always stopped for a friendly word & the same with Simon the entertainment officer. That also goes for any other staff that we met on our daily walk around the Balmoral. They always had a smile on their face & said hello or good morning or good evening. We will definitely be happy to cruise with Fred Olsen on the Balmoral again. And we would certainly recommend the Fred Olsen Cruise line to any of our friends who are thinking of booking a cruise.

Excellent scenery of the fiords & excellent food & service.
