Balmoral is operated by Fred Olsen Cruise Lines. She was originally built at Meyer Werft as Crown Odyssey for the now defunct Royal Cruise Line. She served under the same name for the now also defunct Orient Lines and as Norwegian Crown for Norwegian Cruise Line.
Pictures and a short history of this vessel can be found at Simplon Postcards, more photos and videos on Balmoral are available at Pam Massey's webpage.
Before joining the fleet of Fred Olsen Balmoral has been stretched at Blohm + Voss - see also this time lapse video. A nice video of Balmoral encountering heavy seas while leaving A Coruña can be found at YouTube. Photos of Balmoral as Orient Line's Crown Odyssey can be found at www.cruisepage.com.
