Fred Olsen Cruises: 2017 / 2018 - Page 3

Relaxed, personal, stylish and highly individual… Fred. Olsen ships are the perfect size for cruising, not a floating city, but a village that has everything you need to make your holiday unforgettable. Whatever your choice, you will enjoy cruising on a ship that’s stylish and comfortable – small enough for you to feel completely relaxed, yet with everything needed for your complete comfort and enjoyment. At 43,000 tonnes and carrying around 1,300 passengers, Balmoral is the largest and most recent ship in the Fred. Olsen fleet and the first to bear the name of the Scottish home of the Royal Family. The public rooms are designed on a Scottish theme, but overall the atmosphere is entirely British. The main restaurant is Ballindalloch, plus there are two other formal restaurants. You can dine informally in the Palms Café, while the first seapub, ‘Morning Light’ is the place for light evening entertainment, alongside the main shows and dancing in the Neptune and Lido Lounges. If you prefer something quieter, enjoy magnificent views while relaxing with a drink in the Observatory Lounge. Among its other facilities, Balmoral has swimming pools, jacuzzis and a gym where you can get fit while enjoying superb sea views – relax in one of the on-deck jacuzzis, maybe enjoy a luxurious spa treatment, or just top up the tan while reading a book from the well-stocked library. On board Boudicca, like on all Fred. Olsen ships, the emphasis is on providing an intimate and more traditional cruise experience, ensuring guests disembark after their relaxing holiday as friends, not just customers.Up to 880 guests can cruise in comfort aboard the 28,500 tonne Boudicca, enjoying ample space and fantastic restaurants, lounges, bars and facilities. Indulge yourself with delicious dinners in the Four Seasons, Tintagel or the Heligan Room restaurants; take a dip in one of the three heated pools; watch a show in the Neptune Lounge; simply relax on the Sun Deck; enjoy al fresco dining at The Grill and much more without ever feeling overcrowded. Cruising alongside hundreds, not thousands, of likeminded travellers also ensures that staff on board Boudicca can provide Fred.’s renowned personal, attentive service, catering to your every want and need. Boudicca offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy unforgettable sights an
