Feefo Gold Trusted Service Award

I have booked a few times with Scotland's Cruise Centre and always found the customer service to be excellent. Staff are always friendly and keen to find the best deal for you .

Mr McGinily / December 2020

Great service

Very helpful with enquiries after I’d made my Booking. If person I’d been dealing with was not available then another member of staff helped instead

Cruise Kings Excels Once Again

Once again our 2022 cruise bookings were handled effortlessly by Cruise Kings. In addition to this, Alana McEwan has worked tirelessly in order to resolve the issues surrounding our cancelled 2020 cruises & the headaches Future Cruise Credit's have caused. I can't thank her enough for everything she has done & for keeping me updated throughout. It has been a relief that I have been able to leave this in Alana's capable hands as opposed to dealing with the Cruise Company directly. It has been one less thing for me to worry about this year. I would highly recommend Cruise Kings (and indeed I do!) to anyone who is thinking of booking a cruise.

Balmoral From Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

Balmoral is the largest of our ocean-going cruise ships, yet is still small enough to navigate size-restricted waterways such as the Kiel Canal, providing fantastic scenic cruising opportunities, and retains the warm, intimate and friendly atmosphere that the Fred. Olsen fleet is renowned for. Balmoral is named after the Scottish residence of the British Royal Family, and the Scottish theme runs throughout the main dining venues – the Ballindalloch, Avon and Spey – where guests can enjoy tantalising menus prepared by our expert chefs. Featuring 710 well-appointed rooms and suites and a selection of comfortable lounges, bars and inviting public areas which have been extensively refitted and improved as part of Fred. Olsen's fleet-wide refurbishment programme, Show less Balmoral provides guests with ample space in which to relax and share a memorable cruise experience with hundreds, not thousands, of fellow travellers. And, as our guests have come to expect, there is always an array of superb entertainment on offer throughout the day, from lectures and hobby classes to live cabaret and comedians, ensuring you can make the most of your time on board
