A Fred. Olsen cruise is all about being able to escape the stresses of life back home and relaxing on board Braemar is the perfect way to take your mind off it all.
Enjoy the gentle sea breeze as you wander along the promenade under moonlight or as the sun slowly rises on the horizon; unwind in the sauna or steam room; let the bubbling jacuzzi’s gently soothe you; or perhaps visit the serene Atlantis Spa and choose from a range of treatments including massages, manicures and hairdressing for the ultimate indulgence.
Spending so much time relaxing and indulging on board Braemar doesn’t mean you have to stray too far from your usual healthy lifestyle either. Stick to your usual routine in the fully-equipped Fitness Centre; have a go at yoga, aerobics and a number of other fun and energetic classes; or simply swim lengths of the heated pool to stay in shape. There’s no reason to feel guilty about having that extra course at dinner or another glass of your favourite tipple.
Atlantis Spa & Salon
We’re confident you’ll feel thoroughly relaxed and spoilt on board Braemar, but if you’re after a little extra pampering, head to Atlantic Deck 3 and immerse yourself in the soothing surroundings of the Atlantis Spa and Salon. Here you’ll find everything to refresh and revitalise you, including manicures, massages, waxing and hair styling and colouring. Whether you’re looking to unwind after a busy day ashore or treat yourself to a new look ready for formal night, the experts in the Atlantis Spa and Salon will have you covered.
On most days, the Atlantis Spa and Salon is open from 8am till 8pm whilst at sea and in port, but occasionally it will stay open until 10pm. Services and treatments are often in high demand, so be sure to book early and check you Daily Times for offers and special promotions.

Swimming Pools & Jacuzzis
Braemar features two large, heated swimming pools on Marquee Deck 8 which are perfect for keeping fit and working-off the indulgences from the night before, or simply relaxing in the sunshine.
There’s also a small paddling pool ideal for cooling off after a few hours in the sun and dipping your toes while sipping your favourite drink; and the bubbling Jacuzzis are always a welcome relief after a busy and exciting day ashore.
Sauna & Steam Room
After a workout in the fully-equipped gym or a few hours of the exploring ashore, the sauna and steam room is the perfect place to relax and recover.
A delightful retreat filled with histories, geographies, biographies, novels, board games, a selection of CDs and DVDs and more. Our library is stocked from floor to ceiling.
Relax in the mahogany surroundings and lose yourself in a good book.
Share a game in our specially set up Card Room with card tables and comfy chairs for you to enjoy a competitive hand or just a bit of fun.
Bridge is always a popular pursuit on board, so you’re sure to find players for a hand or two and more – whether casual or competitive is up to you!
There’s always time to settle into a classic card or board game, whilst on your cruise. Perfect for when you feel like a break from the elements.
Arts & Crafts Room
There’s never much time to let your creativity flow at home. Now you have the luxury to do so, you can take time to explore ideas and designs in our Arts and Crafts Room. So whether you’re creative or just feel like some fun, come and join us on the Atlantic Deck. The activities will be listed in the Daily Times, delivered to your room every evening.
Feel a gentle morning sea breeze, take an afternoon meander, or a stroll by moonlight. Take a walk on the decks of our ship and watch the ocean pass by.
You can play shuffle board or deck quoits on the promenade, but don’t forget to look up. There could be beautiful scenery coming up on your horizon.
Sun Deck and Golf
Relax on the Sun Deck and take in sweeping sea views as you either sunbathe or hone your perfect swing during your cruise on board Braemar. Take some time to yourself in our practice golf nets. You could come home with a new technique up your sleeve!
