Dorothy Gibbons | June 4, 2019 | Fred Olsen Cruise Lines | Balmoral
The only slight disappointment we had was that the cabin suite that we upgraded to, although a nice cabin, it was not to the same size and standard as that on the on the Balmoral.
Also the singer with the orchestra (Ricky) was far too loud, almost shouting, and the beat on many of the dances was not correct. either a bit too slow or slightly too fast. Ballroom dance has a strict tempo for all dances, and a good orchestra should be able to play to that correct beat.
The Dance instructors, Elaine and Ron were excellent, and their records were always to the correct beat.
