Enjoy views of beautiful countryside from the decks of Braemar as the ship sails over 300 nautical miles along picturesque Spanish and French rivers to the heart of captivating cites; taking you closer to a plethora of fantastic sights and experiences.

In France, a relaxing afternoon sail along the beautiful River Seine follows an overnight stay in Rouen, passing through lush-green landscapes and by pretty communes dotted along the banks of the river. While docked in Rouen, admire the stunning cathedral and visit the exact spot where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake, or perhaps join a tour for a magical evening in nearby Paris. Here you could wander up the Champs Elysées; see the Eiffel Tower; and enjoy a show at Lido de Paris. Braemar will also cruise the narrow Gironde and Garonne Rivers, sailing straight to the UNESCO-listed heart of beautiful Bordeaux. Explore the Old Town to discover historic structures and squares such as the 18th century Place de la Bourse; or take a trip the magnificent Medoc Vineyards and sample world-famous wines during an overnight stay in the ‘Pearl of Aquitaine’.

Your time in Spain will then get off to a memorable start, sailing all the way to Seville via the gorgeous Guadalquivir River. Your arrival into this stunning city will coincide with the final evening of the fabulous Feria de Abril festival; and Braemar will dock in the perfect position to provide you with unspoilt views of the celebratory fireworks. The following day you'll have time to step ashore and explore Seville to discover splendid sights such as the Real Alcázar and the grand, UNESCO-listed gothic cathedral. You'll also visit historic Cádiz, where you could relax on the golden-sand beaches or explore the delightful Old Town before setting sail for home. En route back to Southampton your ship will also divert to Lisbon, the Portuguese capital packed with museums and architectural wonders.

Please note, this is an adult only sailing (18+).

Single supplement offers are available on selected grades on this sailing, please call for details.

My cabin was under the show lounge stage; I could not only hear the music but also the taps of the tap dancing! Before the cruise I did ask the person I booked with whether the cabin would be noisy - they said they had never had any complaints. I mentioned the problem to reception on the Black Watch at both the start and end of the cruise.
