Title: Nice and friendly ship Summary: We cruised to the Baltic with Braemar. The food was excellent and the crew very helpful. Overall, the boat was in fine shape. The quality of the lectures left something to be desired. The principal lecturer was excellent, but the port lectures and the product based talks (eg on jewellery etc) were poor. I knew more from reading a travel book. The optional excursions were good and reasonably well organised. Use of the entertainment staff...

Title: Canary Islands Cruise Summary: An excellent cruise.Cruised with Fred Olsen before but thought that the food was much better this time. Boudicca is a friendly ship and the service was good. Only disappointment was that the entertainment was amateurish compared to other cruise lines

Title: Caribbean and Cuba Summary: This was our 8th visit to Barbados, and it was raining, which was not an auspicious start. Just before our holiday, I had badly twisted my knee and was in a lot of pain with it, so was alarmed when I saw the gangway hooked up to Deck 4, as I peg legged up the wet slippery steps, while other clients impatiently waited to get past! Also the lifts were out of commission as they...

Title: Western Med Summary: Balmoral had just recently been painted so she looked white and clean. Embarkation was quick and efficent. The Balmoral was very suitable for the Mediterranean, the ports of call all had something for everyone, they met all tastes and were suitable for the different abilities encountered on board. Our cabin stewardess was called ‘Malou’ and she was from the Philippines, she spoke very good English and always said ‘good morning/evening Mr Keith and Madam Elizabeth...

Title: Med Summary: We arrived at Dover and were directed where to drop off our luggage. Straight away we were met by attendants who took our luggage away whilst we parked up. That was the last we saw of it until we got to our cabin which is brilliant. The check in procedure was very straight forward and the staff were friendly and helpful. We were seated in the terminal building awaiting embarkation we noticed how many older...

Title: BALMORAL IN THE CANARIES Summary: This is the first time I have been with Fred Olsen and travelled with my husband and 6 year old child. We were fully aware that there would be no childrens facilities as we went outside children’s holiday’s. We chose the Balmoral as it was the biggest and and best ship facility wise and chose the canaries for the weather, we were not disappointed. We used Portlink to take us from Southampton , once we...

Title: Fjords Summary: We had sailed on this ship before it was lengthened, so wondered if it would still be as stylish as we had thought previously. We need not have worried, as the Braemar is still one of the most handsome cruise ships afloat. We had booked parking with Dover Port so we were able to drive to the terminal to offload our luggage, which was delivered to our cabin within an hour of boarding. We then...

Title: Baltic Cruise Summary: On boarding the Balmoral one is greeted with a very friendly welcome from very polite smiling staff. The ship has a bright modern feel that continues in many areas, all walls on staircases have bright ‘Tiffany’ style glass panels and carpets to reflect the same colours in patterns some passengers found it a little disorientating when ship in choppy waters. The decor throughout the ship was good and well maintained. All public areas were spacious...

Title: beautiful balmoral Summary: As we approached Dover we saw the ship and it looked medium sized, our luggage was taken by porters straight from the taxi and we went through to the check in area.This was a nice comfortable lounge serving drinks / snacks whilst you waited to embark. We only had to wait 10 minutes and we were allowed to board the ship. As we entered the ship through reception there was a small atrium area which...
