Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ 1,350-guest flagship, Balmoral, has commenced its 2019/20 cruise season from Newcastle on 21st April 2019, setting sail from the Port of Tyne on an eight-night ‘Cruising German Waterways’ voyage.


Balmoral’s ex-Newcastle cruise season will extend from April to June, from where the ship will reposition to Edinburgh (Rosyth), before returning to Newcastle from August to October, and then undertaking a further two departures in March 2020.


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


“We are delighted that Balmoral will be operating a record 16 departures from Newcastle in 2019/20 – an increase on the 15 that we offered in 2018/19 – demonstrating the very loyal customer base that we have built up in this popular North Eastern port since we started cruise departures on our flagship in 2016.


“Fred. Olsen’s attractive combination of exciting destinations – including Norway, Iceland, Spain, Portugal, Germany and the Baltic – and great value-for-money have seen many first-time cruisers and repeat customers from Newcastle and the North East make the decision to sail from their convenient, local Port of Tyne.


“To date, our bookings for 2019 have shown that Balmoral’s ‘The Best of the Fjords in Seven Nights’ adult-only sailing from Newcastle in May, and our 11-night ‘Mystery Cruise’ in September – with the added bonus of visiting a different country every day – are amongst our best-selling holidays overall.”


Balmoral’s ex-Newcastle sailings in 2019/20 include:


– Five-night L1921 ‘The Norwegian Fjords in Five Nights’ cruise, ex Newcastle on 23rd August 2019.Prices start from £649 per person.

Ports of call: Newcastle, UK – Cruising Lysefjord – Eidfjord, Hardangerfjord, Norway – Cruising Ulvikafjord – Cruising Hardangerfjord – Bergen, Norway – Newcastle, UK
