They do a lot of promotions so wait and see if they do special offers on what interests you - the gold /silver jewellery by the inch was very popular and they reduced a lot of the cheaper stuff on the last night. If you buy alcohol they keep it for you - you cannot take it to your cabin. We found the staff very unhelpful compare to the other staff on the ship.

Large area at the back of the ship with the usual array of ships gift souveniers, Diamonds International and lots of Jewellery stations. Clothing, bags accessories etc. One tip on the Jewellery when they say a one night special with xx% off - it is only for that night. We missed out by going back the next day to purchase something but they would not reduce back to what we could have bought if for the previous day.

Norwegian Fjords

By Charlene Thackeray

I have never been to the Norwegian Fjords but we have just booked a little break on the Fred Olsen Balmoral for May. It is just a short 5 night sailing but as Charlie has a half day at school every Friday and then the Monday & Tuesday are inset days we thought we would get away.This will be our first time visiting the Fjords and our first time with Fred Olsen. This will be completely different to our last cruise in December on Allure of the Seas and I dont think Charlie realises how small...
