Experience the rewards of smaller ship cruising, but with a mysterious twist, on this unmissable adventure on board Balmoral. After boarding your classic cruise ship in Newcastle, a sense of excitement, intrigue and anticipation will build as you and hundreds – not thousands – of like-minded fellow travellers set sail to well, who knows? As the destinations on this unique 10-night itinerary will be kept a secret until the last possible moment, with your Captain keeping you guessing until you arrive in each port of call. There’s a chance you’ll take in a place you’ve always wanted to visit; an undiscovered gem; or perhaps a few of Fred. Olsen’s favourites, ports you know and love to visit time and again. Wherever you cruise to, you’re in for a rewarding experience thanks to Balmoral’s ability to bring you closer to the highlights of each destination, and thanks to the sumptuous cuisine, fabulous entertainment and personal, attentive service enjoyed on board. We’ll take care of everything, so all you have to do is relax and make the most of your time away.
