23rd May 2025 | 5 nights | Sails from Southampton, England | Balmoral | 116800

In just five nights, you can enjoy memorable Scenic Discoveries and explore three French towns, making for the perfect Bank Holiday getaway. You’ll first make landfall in St. Malo, resting place of seafarer Jacques Cartier, who left here to discover the New World in Canada. Sailing along the scenic River Seine – flanked by picturesque countryside and quaint villages – into Rouen is only possible on smaller ships like Balmoral. With calls into Rouen and Honfleur, you can discover Normandy, a region known for its architecture and for being the birthplace of Impressionism. You can marvel at medieval buildings, visit Claude Monet’s House and Gardens, visit a calvados distillery, or join a tour of the D-Day beaches.

Named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, Balmoral is small compared to other cruise ships and features just 710 guest cabins. Thanks to her smaller size, she is able to navigate some of Europe's most picturesque waterways, including the Kiel Canal and River Seine, and retains the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for. More information
