They offer a wide range of services including hairdressing, manicures, massage and spa treatments. Please visit the beauty salons on board to view the full range of treatments available. You would be well advised to book treatments for formal nights as soon as you get on board
as these days are normally extremely busy. On the first
night of your cruise there will be a Spa Tour with free raffle and refreshments.On both Balmoral and Braemar information on the available treatments can be viewed on FOi (Interactive TV) by visiting 'General Information' from the main menu and selecting 'Beauty and Health'. Beds & BeddingOn all our ships your beds will be made up for you by your cabin stewardess whilst you are enjoying your evening meal. Bedding configurations vary across the fleet, so please check your confirmation invoice for details. Many cabins on Braemar, Boudicca and Balmoral can be configured as either a twin or double, and this will be detailed on your confirmation invoice where applicable. If you would like the conversion from twin to double please advise your agent or our Administration Department on 01473 292444.Bureau de ChangeAll our vessels operate a bureau de change facility on board, where foreign currency can be purchased or sold. This facility is located at the Reception Desk. All major currencies are stocked based upon the itinerary of the cruise, with no commission charged and with rates comparable to high street banks or bureau de change. You may purchase foreign currency with travellers cheques or cash. Alternatively, you may use your credit card to buy Sterling to then purchase foreign currency for which a charge of 3.5% will be applied.
