Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has advised passengers who are due to board Balmoral on 04 February 2017, to delay their arrival to the cruise terminal.
The 1,350-passenger cruise ship, which is the flagship of the Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines fleet is expected to arrive into Southampton some twelve hours late, due to adverse weather conditions in the North Sea. Balmoral has been cruising at a reduced speed due to the weather conditions on route to Southampton.
Balmoral is estimated to berth at City Cruise Terminal in Southampton at 17:00 hours on 04 February 2017. Guests embarking on the 46-night cruise are advised to not arrive at the cruise terminal any earlier than 18:30. This is to ensure the passengers currently on board can disembark the vessel.
Balmoral is expected to depart Southampton later in the evening. The 46-night ‘Central America & Mardi Gras’ cruise will visit 18 ports of call.
