Balmoral Review

Absolutely dreadful, unsanitary, dirty, hugely expensive for what it is

Sail Date: Aug 2022
Cabin: Superior Outside

Chosen for the itinerary - Iceland.

Fred Olsen is absolutely not worth the money.

Food is mediocre, drinks are expensive (particularly if you pay for their awful drinks package), entertainment is abysmal (apart from a fantastically talented bloke called Drew Levi), and they are clearly only interested in maximising profit and cutting customer benefits to the bone.

Cabin Review

Superior Outside

Dirty. Old. Ridiculous duvet arrangement. Uncomfortable beds. Small bathroom. Temperamental plumbing. Occasionally dirty water.
