Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Balmoral Food Blog

My first Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines food blog was a big hit, so I thought it only right I do another one, this time showcasing the food from two of my sailings aboard Balmoral: one in May 2016 to the Norwegian Fjords and the other in October 2016 to Spain and Morocco. All of the dishes were delicious, I’m yet to have a bad meal on any Fred. Olsen ship, and my vegetarian friend who joined me in October said the options available for her were the best she had ever had at sea! My Braemar food blog was the first in my Fred. Olsen food series and I am sure you will enjoy this one just as much!

I’ve noted down with each image where onboard the food was served, so you can get an idea of what is available in all areas and not just in the Main Dining Rooms (Avon, Spey and Ballindalloch). I do still like the fact that the MDRs also offer a buffet option, you get twice as much variety.

The impressive towering walls of #framlinghamcastle in Suffolk. A rich piece of #englishhistory built in the 12th century by Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk. It was also the inspiration for the song 'Castle on the Hill' by Ed Sheeran. #travel #history The most beautiful #bird I've ever come across. He knew he was gorgeous! I met him in #GranCanaria but can't remember what kind of bird he is - do you know? #cruise #travel #wildlife #travelblogger
