Fred olsen BalmoralFred. Olsen Cruise Lines has released a new brochure called 'Balmoral from the north' that showcases the variety of trips available from Newcastle and Rosyth (Edinburgh) on its flagship Balmoral for 2019.

The brochure comprises 20 of the cruise line's most popular itineraries from the north including, among others, cruising the scenic waterways into the cities of Germany, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands. Guests can also soak up the late summer sunshine in France, Portugal, Spain; explore the natural wonders of Iceland; or embark on an in-depth discovery of the Blatic's capital cities.   

Balmoral, which began its debut season from May to July, will return to Edinburgh in 2019 for its second season and offer eight cruise holidays between June and August including a seven-night ‘Norwegian Fjords’ departure, a 14-night ‘Baltic Capitals’ discovery, and a nine-night ‘European Rivers & Canals’ experience.   

The ship will operate from Port of Tyne from April to October in 2019

Clare Ward, director of product and customer service for the cruise line, said: “In order to accommodate Balmoral, the Port of Rosyth consulted with us and made significant investments in the port area and facilities. The introduction of a sheltered marquee and car parking close to the Cruise Terminal, along with enhanced passenger flows, has led to a marked upturn in guest satisfaction and a greatly-improved guest experience. We look forward to another successful cruise season from the scenic Port of Rosyth in 2019, when we will once again be welcoming Scottish guests aboard Balmoral, both old and new.”
