In 2018/19, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ 1,350-guest flagship, Balmoral, will be sailing from Edinburgh (Rosyth) for the first time, operating a total of nine cruises.
Holidays on offer, from May to July, include a five-night ‘Norwegian Fjords’ departure, a 14-night ‘Scandinavia & St. Petersburg’ Baltic discovery, and a nine-night ‘German Waterways’ experience.
Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We are proud of Fred. Olsen’s long-standing links with Scotland, and we are looking forward to introducing our flagship Balmoral to Edinburgh in 2018, further enhancing our cruises for Scottish guests.
“The beauty of a Fred. Olsen cruise holiday is that we take people closer to the world’s most beautiful cities and destinations – many of which larger cruise ships cannot reach – and we are pleased to be bringing even more of our cultural and scenic cruise holidays to Edinburgh.
“Our smaller, more intimately-sized ships can call at smaller ports. Guests sailing from Edinburgh will have the chance to experience picturesque rivers, canals, lochs and fjords, as well as port calls right in the heart of destinations, with all the highlights on hand.”
In 2018/19, examples of Fred. Olsen’s cruises from Edinburgh (Rosyth) on Balmoral include:
– Five-night L1813 ‘Five-Night Fjords’ cruise, departing on 26th May 2018.
Ports of call: Edinburgh (Rosyth) – Cruising Lysefjord – Bergen – Eidfjord, Hardangerfjord – Cruising Hardangerfjord – Cruising to Fureberg Waterfall, Maurangerfjord – Edinburgh (Rosyth).
