Why choose Fred Olsen Braemar?

With less than 500 cabins and a capacity of just over 900 travellers, offering a wide range of different itineraries from Scandinavia to the Canaries, you can really get to know your fellow passengers and find a cruise that will suit all budgets aboard the Braemar.

Destinations and Itineraries

Setting sail from Dover and visiting destinations across the UK, Europe and the world, the Braemar offers the opportunity to experience some of the most breathtaking places on the planet in total comfort and elegant luxury. From a majestic Norwegian fjords cruise, to a stunning voyage to St Petersburg, you are spoilt for choice. For sunnier climes, why not spend 17 nights cruising around Italy and Spain, or 10 nights visiting the world renowned wine regions of Bordeaux and Rioja. Ranging from 8 to 17 nights and £472 - £1343, there is a Fred Olsen cruise on Braemar for all tastes and budgets.

Activities and Entertainment

Whether it's your favourite tipple in the Morning Light Pub or something a little stronger in one of the many bars and lounges, there is no shortage of things to do once the sun sets. Visit the Braemar Lounge with your new found friends and listen to the resident string trio. After dinner go to one of the two show theatres, the 170-seat Coral Club for live Cabaret, bands and evening shows or the larger Neptune lounge for world-class dancing and entertainment. On the upper decks, you can eat al fresco in the Lido Bar and enjoy a drink in the balmy evening air at the Marquee pool bar located on deck 7. When it's time for a night cap why not retire to the Observatory Lounge located at the very front of the ship, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the sunset. One thing’s for certain, with so much entertainment in store, you won' t ever want to call it a night.

The Fred Olsen Braemar offers a more relaxed and intimate approach to cruise holidays, whilst retaining the same level of luxury and elegance that the larger ships offer. With stunning destinations, a variety of dining options and plenty to see and do, Braemar is the perfect way to see the world as you enjoy indulgent food, an extensive range of entertainment and luxurious pampering treatments.

On Board

With an incredible range of facilities onboard, there will always be something new to see or do during your Braemar getaway. The focal point of the ship is the Atrium, located at the stern, which spans an impressive five decks and provides access to the fitness centre and The Palms Café, The Coral Club and The Thistle Restaurant. For the more energetic passenger, the fitness centre offers a full complement of gym equipment and classes including yoga and Pilates. For a more sedate and relaxing way to spend your days at sea, why not enjoy a stroll along the promenade, take a dip in the pool or Jacuzzi, visit the on-board library or go for some ‘you time’ in the Spa and Salon? If you have a more competitive edge, you can play bridge in the Card room or maybe maintain your handicap with a quick practice in the golf nets on the top deck. You can keep in contact with your loved ones at home in the ship’s free internet cafe.


You are guaranteed to be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding where to eat on board. There is a choice of three different restaurants: The Thistle, the main restaurant, offering incredible ocean views and an exquisite à la carte menu as well as hosting gala evenings; The Grampian, with its distinctive large round windows, offering you formal dining in a slightly more intimate setting; and, finally, The Palms Café featuring a buffet style of dining if you don't wish to be tied into eating at set times. Whichever restaurant you choose, you are guaranteed to enjoy sampling Fred Olsen's amazing choice of dishes, each prepared to an incredibly high standard matching the world’s top restaurants.


There is a variety of different cabins available, from the ultra-luxurious suites and the opulent Suite Dreams package, ideal for those looking to treat themselves and enjoy the ultimate cruise holidays experience, to the more modest but no less luxurious inside cabins, which feature a fantastic array of amenities.
