FRED OLSEN cruise ship "BALMORAL"


"BALMORAL" was built in Germany by MEYER WERFT in 1988 to ROYAL CRUISE LINE, she was known as CROWN ODISSEY, she has also sailed for NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE as the NORWEGIAN CROWN and with ORIENT LINES as the CROWN ODISSEY. Before entering service with FRED OLSEN CRUISE LINES in 2008 she was lengthened by some 30 meters again in Germany but this time by BLOM & VOSS shipyards at Hamburg. MILES MORGAN TRAVEL chartered the ship recently to follow the exact route of RMS TITANIC with an intent to stop at the very spot where the White Star Line ship sunk, the cruise was organized to honour the 100th anniversary of TITANIC´s sinking. BALMORAL is 217 meters long and has a GRT of just over 43.000, photos taken at Calshot on the 24th June 2011
