Fred Olsen Cruise Lines entertainmentTraditionally offered as river cruises, Christmas Markets cruises have become very popular with ocean cruise lines in recent years. This Balmoral cruise includes two transits of Kiel Canal, one during daytime, and visits Copenhagen, where there will be an option to visit the famous Tivoli Gardens – illuminated by millions of light bulbs and containing many market stalls and shops, with a Christmas theme. Many of the rides will be open, for thrill seekers. There will also be optional visits to German Christmas Markets in both Bremen and Hamburg.

The ship will be decorated for Christmas and there will be the usual dining and entertainment experiences expected on an ocean cruise, and shore excursions organised by Fred. Olsen. If you have not tried a Christmas Markets, or winter cruise, before we hope this will tempt you. If you have, we hope this will tempt you again.

A group cruise does not mean everyone does everything together. You will be entitled to join group dining in the evening (late sitting at 8:30pm), and there will be a gathering each evening for pre-dinner drinks. Spey Restaurant, BalmoralAgain, both are optional, but prove to be a great way to meet, chat and dine with like-minded Silver Travellers.

Should you choose to dine at the early sitting, or in a different restaurant, this will be separate from our group arrangements.

There will also be a private cocktail party for our group (dependent on numbers booking), but otherwise the cruise experience will be whatever you wish to make of it.
