By bringing you closer to the heart of four fabulous cities, to really get under their skin, Braemar helps you to discover the very best of breathtaking Andalusia. Docking in the centre of Seville, you’ll be enticed into exploring the region’s captivating capital, to seek-out attractions such as Alcázar Palace, the UNESCO-listed gothic cathedral and 16th century Casa de Pilatos. For a taste of authentic local flavours and culture, you could sample traditional cuisine at your pick of the tapas bars, and even catch a performance of sultry Flamenco, with a chance to learn the moves from a Bailaora too.

Elsewhere, your discovery of Spain’s beautiful southernmost region takes you to Cádiz, on the sun-kissed Atlantic Coast, for a chance to take in the city’s charming Old Town and many historic delights, or tour to nearby Jerez – ‘sherry capital of the world’; and Malaga, overflowing with aesthetic and artistic treasures from the Picasso Museum to the magnificent, Moorish-style Alcazaba Fortress. You’ll also get to unravel the rich maritime heritage of Lisbon, amongst its many landmarks and monuments; and not only taste the Portuguese capital’s famous egg custard tarts, but learn how to make them too. With your smaller ship docking closer to heart of the action in each destination, you’ll find it easy to embark on rewarding, in-depth explorations.  

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.
