Sail Date: Aug 2018
Cabin: Premier Suite

We always go from Port of Tyne as it makes such an easy start to the holiday. I am slightly disabled and we have two autistic grandchildren and the crew and staff on Balmoral do everything the can to make the cruise perfect. We have been on three cruises and each one has been wonderful. The food is great, the entertainment first class and our rooms are so comfortable. There is plenty to do for the children, who love the quizzes and shows in the evening.

My only complaint is that although we have an allocated table in the evening breakfast and lunch is a bit of a free for all, and our allocated restaurant became a bit of a nightmare for the children, who find crowds and noise quite difficult to cope with.

Apart from this, I cannot fault Fred Olsen and compliment him on a really well run organisation.

Premier Suite

A really lovely room with plenty of space and a separate dressing room. Bed very comfortable.
