Well Done Fred!
Valerie Crane | August 30, 2017 | Fred Olsen Cruise Lines | Balmoral
Although we have cruised quite frequently on other lines, mostly P&O, this cruise was our first on the Balmoral and first for 10 years with Fred Olsen. What a revelation! Our accommodation, the food, the service, the entertainment, the shore tours in fact every aspect of the cruise was absolutely first class. Nothing was too much trouble for the waiters, bar staff, cabin stewardess and all the other crew members we came into contact with. There was a lovely atmosphere on the ship – we didn’t hear one single negative comment during the whole 2 weeks. Whereas on other cruise lines we feel that we are just names on a passenger list, on the Balmoral we
felt we were welcome and valued guests. Very many thanks to everyone who made our cruise to the Baltic such a joyful experience.
