Because the library is often the quietest place on the ship, it can also be the most relaxing.

The Braemar Lounge is light and breezy and is the perfect place to slump into a comfortable chair and take a few minutes to yourself. Often the gentle sound of live music will dance on your ear drums and put you in the perfect holiday mood.
A brisk walk in the fresh sea air is great for the lungs and a good way to help your dinner digest before you enjoy a night of entertainment in the Neptune Lounge. The promenade stretches all the way around the Lounge Deck and helps to show off the wealth of space there is on board Balmoral. During the day, there are often games being played that all passengers are free to join in with.
