Balmoral is the cruise line's largest liner, and it comes with a Scottish theme. Dine at the Ballindalloch, the main restaurant, or perhaps you prefer the Avon or Spey. There's buffet dining at Palms Cafe, or watch everything go by from the Observatory Lounge. Cabaret, music and dancing are all part of the evening entertainment.
The cruise departs from Southampton before calling into Liverpool with its World Heritage waterfront and two cathedrals. Then it's on to Belfast and its Botanical Gardens, Belfast Castle and the chance to visit the Harland and Wolff shipyard where RMS Titanic was built. Balmoral will then return to Southampton.
