Fred Olsen - Norwegian Festival & Fjords - 5 Nights

Onboard Fred Olsen's Balmoral

Sail straight to the heart of Norway in a fraction of the time it would take to cruise there from a southern UK departure port and enjoy stunning scenic cruising just a short while after departure. Glide through incredible fjords including Lysefjord, Hardangerfjord and Maurangerfjord, where famous landmarks such as the Preikestolen flat mountain plateau, the Kjeragbolten – a huge rock wedged intriguingly in a vast mountain crevice – and the mesmerising Furebergfossen Waterfall come into view, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Explore the UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, or discover stunning views on a relaxing, sight-seeing ride along the funicular railway in the Hanseatic city of Bergen, where you’ll call will coincide with the fantastic International Festival – an annual celebration of music, theatre, dance, opera and the arts. From Eidfjord you can explore stunning landscapes on foot and take in the sight of the beautiful Mabodal Valley or – if you’re feeling a little more adventurous – head out onto the glass-like waters of the fjord on a fantastic kayaking adventure and be blown away by the sheer size of the imposing cliffs and mountains that run alongside it.

Your Ship


Balmoral is Fred Olsen's largest and newest cruise ship, named after the Scottish home of the Royal Family. Still smaller than most cruise ships today, there are 710 cabins and suites and generous public space for the 1,300 guests on board.

The main restaurant is Ballindalloch (named after the Speyside village and castle), while the two other formal restaurants - Avon and Spey - are also in keeping with the Scottish theme and are named after two of Scotland’s most beautiful salmon rivers.

There’s a comfy pub with occasional live music or comedy, cabaret and shows in the Neptune Lounge, or drift away with a cool drink and spectacular seascapes in the Observatory Lounge.

Price Based on an Inside Cabin - 2 adults sharing.

Cabin upgrades available at a supplement.
