Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has arrived in Scotland for a summer season of sailing on board Balmoral.

The smaller-sized ship will today set sail on her first cruise of the season from Rosyth, taking guests on a seven-night Norwegian Fjords cruise.

Other destinations from June through to August include the Baltic, Scottish Isles, Iceland and Portugal’s islands.

Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“We are delighted to have returned to Rosyth for another busy cruising schedule for summer 2024.

“Guests joining us can look forward to a variety of cruises on board Balmoral where they can seek out native wildlife, witness spectacular natural phenomena and immerse in the local way of life.

“Opportunities in our hand-crafted itineraries include the opportunity to sail along the size-restricted Kiel Canal, witness thundering waterfalls and spurting geysers in Iceland and see beautiful hydrangeas when they’re in bloom in the Azores.”

Guests can also look forward to a host of specially curated activities on board, from chances to spot marine wildlife with conservation charity ORCA, sampling authentic flavours from the destinations they will visit and joining an astronomer for stargazing on deck.

Rob Mason, Head of Cruise at Capital Cruising, said:

“Our cruise season is well underway across Scotland, and we are excited to welcome Fred. Olsen’s summer cruises into the Port of Rosyth.

“Sailing into Rosyth offers the perfect regional location for travellers who can depart from here and cruise directly to many brilliant destinations across Europe and further afield.

“This year will be our busiest cruise season on the River Forth and we are seeing cruise holidays increase in popularity in Scotland each year.

“We would encourage anyone who has not tried a cruise holiday, to book one of the many brilliant travel itineraries that cruise lines like Fred Olsen offer.”
