Originally launched as Crown Odyssey she was refitted in 2008 and joined the Fred Olsen Cruise Line fleet as Balmoral.
Named after the Scottish home of the Royal Family, Balmoral has accommodation for about 1,300 passengers, through 710 cabins and suites.
All the ship's public rooms have a Scottish theme: its principal restaurant, Ballindalloch, is named after a Speyside village and castle; while the ship's other two formal restaurants, Avon and Spey are named in honour of two of Scotland's loveliest salmon rivers.
You can eat informally in Palms Cafe, or more formally in the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey restaurants. Balmoral also benefits from an on-board pub, which has been recently refitted and offers evening entertainment as an alternative to the main cabarets and dancing in the Neptune or Lido Lounges.
Or you could just relax with a drink in the Observatory Lounge, with it's spectacular views out to sea and later in the evening dance the night away there on its popular disco-dance floor -- that's the beauty of Balmoral, there's always so much to do!
