    Balmoral To Sail From Edinburgh

    In 2018/2019, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ Balmoral, will be sailing from Edinburgh (Rosyth) for the first time ever, operating a total of nine cruises.

    Cruises from May to July, include a five-night "Norwegian Fjords" departure, a 14-night "Scandinavia & St. Petersburg" Baltic discovery, and a nine-night "German Waterways" experience.

    Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:“We are proud of Fred. Olsen’s long-standing links with Scotland, and we are looking forward to introducing our flagship Balmoral to Edinburgh in 2018, further enhancing our cruises for Scottish guests".

    Rosyth is not exactly convenient for Edinburgh. One has to cross the Forth Bridge by road or rail. This will be easier when the new road bridge is fully operational. However, Rosyth is a nice little dock yard and far preferable to Leith, which is nearer the city, but completely disorganised.

      The Forth Road Bridge even now is hardly problematic. OK, it's a little slow at rush hour, but not a huge problem.

      That said, calling Rosyth 'Edinburgh' is just a bit silly.

      This is good news, as any more cruises from Scotland are welcome to me. Short breaks are much more achievable when you don't have to drive for 8 hours to join the ship. I'll certainly be interested to see what the itineraries are like.

        Alas FO are outwith my budget. £250 per day (inside room) for a Scottish cruise where the transport element can be bought for less than £100! Azamara are cheaper!
