  • Grade Grade 2
  • Holiday Duration 10 Nights

Early summer is the perfect time to experience the pastels of Swedish fishing harbours, the cobbled streets of old towns and outdoor museums, beaches and rocks which shelve into the sea, and cruise into the capital through the thousand islands of the Stockholm Archipelago.

Our unique shore walks and excursions include:

Stockholm: Built across 14 islands, you are never far from the water, whether you are in the cobbled streets of Gamla Stan, the old town, or walking through parkland or open air museums.

Malmö: Home to the tallest buildings in Sweden including the intriguing Turning Torso, we walk the squares and parks and visit the castles of this charming city, Sweden’s most multicultural metropolis where 150 nationalities make up the head count.

Visby: On the Swedish holiday island of Gotland. We take a short countryside walk and visit Visby’s walled town with its cobbled streets and roses.

Gothenburg: Home to tranquil 17th century canals, we take an interesting walk to the Botanic Gardens through Slottsskogsparken, a very rural green space close to the city centre. With luck we may see Elk or Deer.

Balmoral

Named after the Scottish home of the Royal Family, Balmoral is a classically styled ship exuding a welcoming, friendly atmosphere and a warming, home-from-home feel. Capable of carrying up to 1,350 guests in pure comfort, Balmoral is the newest and largest ship in the Fred. Olsen fleet but never feels overcrowded, ensuring those on board always enjoy ample space and receive Fred.’s renowned personal, attentive service. The comfortable cabins, excellent cuisine, friendly attentive crew and on board facilities are second to none. On board facilities include two swimming pools, a fitness centre including a sauna, steam room and beauty salon, two sun decks, Jacuzzis, several lounges and bars, a card room, small casino, library, internet room and restaurants. The ship has a medical centre, a boutique, a shop where you can buy essentials such as sun cream or toiletries, and there is also a self service laundrette and ironing room on board. After dinner there are always shows, reviews and evenings of cabaret for your entertainment. Choose from the Neptune Lounge for an evening show or perhaps head to the Lido bar for an after dinner drink and to enjoy the resident band. Or maybe even try your hand at the Casino! Our accommodation is in twin and single cabins with shower and wc. All cabins are equipped with individually controlled air-conditioning, television, hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities and a safety deposit box. Balmoral has a non-smoking policy for all areas of the ship. Allocated cabins will be an inside cabin (normally on the Atlantic Deck) unless you have paid a supplement to upgrade. Those booking single cabins may not necessarily be allocated a twin cabin for sole use. Your cabin steward will keep your cabin in immaculate condition, replacing any linen or towels as or when required. Separate towels are provided for poolside use. Balmoral operates a satellite telephone system, with telephones in each cabin, and personal mobile phones enabled for international roaming should work on board. The voltage on board the Balmoral is supplied at 220 volts (requiring a continental style 2-pin plug). If you are in any doubt as to the appropriate voltage to use your electrical appliances on board, please check with the ship’s Reception Desk. Adapters are usually available for hire on board, or may be bought at the ship’s shop. Payment on board is in Sterling, and a credit account system is operated on board allowing purchases to be charged to your account which must be settled at the end of your cruise – see the Currency section for more details.
