Balmoral Cruise Review by kennivw48
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: Baltic Sea
The cabin was of a decent size, comfortable, with the TV system working well, although I would suggest some sound insulation behind the TV would have been beneficial as the TV in the next cabin was also mounted on the wall and was a bit intrusive. Stewardess was very efficient and particular in cleaning, we had a picture window on deck 6.
Entertainment was fine if not exceptional.
Embarkation and Disembarkation were trouble free and fast, although it was a bit of a jumble trying to extricate the suitcases from the marquee.
One thing noted was there was no bar drinks menu, so one could not peruse the offerings having to ask the waiters what was available, also prices were not on show, meaning unless the waiters were asked the price was only given when the receipt was supplied.
Would certainly book with Fred Olsen again, on another ship? only if the reviews were as good as the Balmoral.
