Several aspects of the cruise ship BALMORAL as photographed on 9 January 2013 in the harbour of Funchal, the capital city of Madeira Island.
The excellent weather and warm temperature with clear light and a most beautiful scene all give way to a multitude of detail and full ship photographs despite this our regretable securitarian international mood. In fact Madeira is a paradise for ship enthusiasts...
The largest of the four passenger cruise ships in the fleet of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, the BALMORAL was built in Papenburg, Germany and delivered in 1988 as the CROWN ODYSSEY, for the Greek Royal Cruise Line. She later operated within the NCL Group before her present career under the Fred. Olsen colours.
