I have just returned from four nights on board Fred. Olsen's Balmoral and what a wonderful trip. It was very tiring as we flew out to Tallinn last Thursday, spent Fri/Sat in St. Petersburg, a day at sea on Sunday then flew back from Gdansk on Monday. Fred. Olsen really looked after us and we were allocated Superior Suites on Deck 9 Bridge Deck. Although I have to say the same suites on Lido were much bigger and had huge balconies. Our first day in St. Petersburg was spent visiting the Peterhof and the Hermitage. Also known as the Summer/Winter Palaces and on the second day we went on a Waterways tour and a tour of St. Peter & Paul Cathedral. The food on board was first class as I have come to expect with Fred. Olsen and have to say I was really impressed with the entertainment. One night we had Russian dancers whose performance was second to none and I have to say my absolute favourite was the comedian Will Bailey.

Peterhof Palace, St. Petersburg

...I am aiming this review on the mature single traveller. I have travelled on Fred Olsen a number of times because they actually make single people very welcome, I have been with other companies and they leave a lot to be desired even though they were excellent cruises. We had our usual singles meet up the first full day at sea. There were 64 single people at the meeting (many didn’t know about it). They were all ages and sexes. It was a very jolly affair and we all came away with at least one new friend and with many new acquaintances that you knew you would be saying at least hello to often throughout the cruise of 18 nights to Cape Verdi. After introductions you found that there was always someone to go ashore with or on an organised trip. You never had to feel alone or lonely unless you wanted your own company for a while. The staff and crew on Balmoral are wonderful. I cannot sing their praises enough. The food is marvellous and the service in the Ballindalloch Restaurant is first class (Especially at Freddies table no 100?). The Cruise down to Cape Verdi was brilliant I would recommend it to everyone but do it on Fred Olsen Lines if you get the chance, you won’t regret it...

“One of the highlights of the cruise so far, was our included trip to the Alpine Arctic Botanical Garden in Tromso - a 'must see' for every keen gardener! The most northerly Botanic garden in the world, it has an unequalled collection of plants from the main alpine regions of the world from the Drakensburg in South Africa to the Americas and New Zealand - all in four and a half acres. Beautifully designed, you can walk through the planted beds, up to the 'peaks' and feel as though you are in the mountains, among the plants. Everyone in the group loved it - especially when the visit was topped off with delicious waffles and some of Norway's famed jam which is packed with delicious fruit. A big 'Yum' all round! Typical of a Victoria Travel & Cruise.co.uk gardening cruise, the guests have enjoyed a themed holiday, made new friends and seen some superb gardens. Everyone was thrilled to have travelled into the Arctic Circle and seen the Midnight Sun for themselves - there will be fabulous stories to share with friends and happy memories to last a lifetime. Do join us next time! Take care and happy gardening!“

There’s even the chance to visit the northern most Botanic Garden in the world, from Tromso, the Arctic Alpine Botanic Garden. At almost 4.5 acres, this garden is situated as far north as the northern most parts of Alaska and is home to thousands of plant species from all parts of the world. The emphasis is, however, on plants from the polar regions or the high mountains, which have difficulty surviving in the milder climates where most botanical gardens are located.

Read our cruise Consultant John’s t hought s... We are all familiar with the 7 nights up to the Fjords, John 10 nights down the Iberian Peninsular, 14 nights up to the Baltic and 12 nights down to the Canaries. Lovely as they are, it’s refreshing when a cruise line puts a different spin on a “regular” itinerary. Few do it with more imagination than Fred. Olsen. I have just booked one of my favourite customers, on to Fred’s Perseid Meteor Shower cruise for August next year. Fred. Olsen have a themed cruise, timed to give the best possible opportunity to witness the meteor shower in all its glory... This thing is amazing, it can produce up to 60 shooting stars per hour...

FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD! Dining to suit every tas te... One of the highlights of a Fred. Olsen cruise is the food. Expert chefs lovingly produce great dishes night after night. Every day menus are something special, with appetisers like herb-marinated salmon or crab cocktail and indulgent main courses like sirloin steak with a choice of sauces, pan seared red snapper with scallops, slow roast duckling confit or balsamic braised lamb shank. Of course there are vegetarian dishes and healthy choices too, with an emphasis on fish dishes inspired by their Norwegian heritage; so even if you’re watching your diet, you’re in for a treat! The desserts are every bit as tasty (think white chocolate parfait or mango apple tart) and the sugar free option means no-one has to miss out. With breakfasts to suit every diet, deliciously tempting soups, beautifully prepared main courses, and desserts designed to test even the strongest willpower, meals on board your chosen Fred. Olsen cruise ship are delectable and plentiful. When the sun’s shining, tuck into a buffet breakfast, take lunch al fresco, and then enjoy a casual or elegant evening dinner. The choice is all yours: eat wherever your taste buds take you. The chefs are passionate about food, so wherever and whenever you choose to eat you'll be assured of the same high quality. Dinner is a five-course affair with something to suit everyone's taste, catering for most diets.

Treat yourself to t radit ional Afternoon Tea Complimentary afternoon tea, served every day, is included in your cruise price and is a daily delight, offering some delicious sandwich and cake options to tempt you. So, if you fancy a mid-afternoon snack, pop along and sample these tasty treats. If you’re looking for something really exclusive, you’re sure to be tempted by Fred. Olsen’s premium Traditional Afternoon Tea service.
