Welcome to Balmoral

The Balmoral is Britain’s most widely travelled excursion ship, carrying over 2 million passengers around the coastline of  Britain and Ireland.

Today she stands as one of Britain’s most prized ships, being partnered with the World famous PS Waverley until 2012. In her career she has sailed to almost every port and harbour in the United Kingdom that can take her, including right into the hearts of both Calais and Boulogne.

On June 27th 2019 the Balmoral marked 70 years since her launch in 1949. The occasion was marked by multiple celebrations, and plans were publicly launched to bring her back into active service.
