You’re in for a memorable Adriatic adventure, as your smaller-scaled ship takes you closer to destinations in Croatia, Italy and Montenegro. Experience scenic cruising of the fjord-like Bay of Kotor’s tranquil waters, and enjoy time to explore Kotor’s beautifully preserved medieval heart amongst its narrow streets and Romanesque architecture. In Croatia, seek-out the serenity of the tiny St Lawrence monastery garden in Sibenik, and enjoy time in the UNESCO-listed World Heritage sites of Dubrovnik and Split’s enchanting old towns, where once again you can delve deep into tales of centuries past in and around ancient walls, terracotta-topped buildings, churches and monasteries. Visiting Venice is an undoubted highlight; not only will you get to see attractions such as the 14th century Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica, and enjoy a gondola ride along the iconic canals, but also enjoy a more laid-back taste of Venetian life in the fishing town of Chioggia.[ReadMoreDesk]

In Greece, excitement and sheer astonishment will grasp you as record-breaking Braemar navigates the Corinth Canal. Sailing between the canal’s carefully carved, pinching cliffs, you’re in for a unique cruise experience rarely enjoyed on an ocean cruise ship. Sailing between Greek islands, you’ve chances to take in the Byzantine architecture of Agios Nikolaos and Rhodes’ ancient sites; and delight in a mix of palm-lined promenades, Ouzeries and glorious beaches in sleepy Syros and gorgeous Kefallonia, Ermoupoli and Argostoli. Meanwhile, on the Greek mainland, Katakolon and Pireaus are gateways to the iconic ancient cities of Olympia and Athens. Finally, experience Spain’s Andalusia region at its most authentic; visiting Seville to catch the celebrations, parades and fireworks of the final day of Feria de Abril is an undoubted highlight. There’s time in Cádiz to explore its charming Old Town too, or tour to the ‘sherry capital’ of Jerez; and uncover the aesthetic and artistic treasures of Malaga, from the Picasso Museum to the magnificent, Moorish-style Alcazaba Fortress.

Braemar is the shortest of Fred. Olsen's four smaller, friendly ocean-going cruise ships, with dimensions perfect for cruising picturesque, size-restricted rivers and docking in the heart of fascinating towns and cities.

Like the rest of the fleet, Braemar assumes the welcoming feel and intimacy of a country house hotel, and a sense of timeless style and elegance flows through the ship's comfortable bars and lounges, restaurants and spacious accommodation for up to 929 guests.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
