Discover quintessential highlights all the way on this Andalusian adventure, with Braemar bringing you closer to the delights of one of Spain’s most breathtaking regions. Andalusia offers rich culture, gorgeous scenery, tempting traditional cuisine and fine architecture; you can experience it all with chances to enjoy hours of memorable daytime scenic cruising and explore a trio of stunning cities.

A relaxing journey along the gorgeous, palm-lined Guadalquivir River is sure to be a highlight of this fantastic 11-night cruise. [ReadMoreMob]The size-restricted Guadalquivir isn’t accessible to larger vessels, so guests on megaships can’t experience the natural beauty of this enchanting waterway. However, on board smaller-sized Braemar, you can sail the river all the way into the heart of Seville, taking in spectacular scenery en route. Once docked in Seville, Andalusia’s stunning capital, you’ll have an overnight stay to really get under the city’s skin. Perhaps wander into the centre to search the pretty squares and streets for historical and architectural attractions such as Alcázar Palace, the UNESCO-listed gothic cathedral and 16th century Casa de Pilatos; and sample delicious local cuisine at one of the many tapas bars. In the evening, don’t miss the chance to catch a sultry performance of traditional Flamenco dancing for an authentic Andalusian experience. [ReadMoreDesk]

Your sail along the Guadalquivir and overnight stay in Seville are sandwiched in between calls at another two of Andalusia’s most captivating cities. Malaga is overflowing with aesthetic and cultural treasures. Perhaps marvel at the Moorish Alcazaba Fortress, and savour the many masterpieces on display at the Picasso Museum, one of the many highlights of the ‘mile of art’. Alternatively, a tour to the hilltop city of Ronda is highly recommended. After Seville comes Cádiz, situated on Andalusia’s sun-kissed Atlantic Coast. You can indulge with the region’s finest traditional flavours during your time here: the bars and restaurants of Cádiz are renowned for serving some of the tastiest tapas on offer anywhere in Spain, while nearby Jerez – reachable on a tour – is the ‘sherry capital of the world’. Cádiz is also a haven for exploration; a wealth of wonderful sites await you in the charming Old Town, including the 18th century cathedral and Plaza de España. If all that wasn’t enough, you’ll have a day to delve into the rich maritime history of the Portuguese capital too, with a visit to picturesque Lisbon.

Refurbished in 2017, elegant 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.

Real ships
We don’t have boastful megaships. We take immense pride in our fleet of smaller-scaled vessels that retain the style, ambience and understated quality of a country house hotel.  We ensure they remain contemporary too: from winter 2016 to spring 2018 the whole fleet underwent dry dock refits to further enhance the facilities for guests. With the fifth generation Fred. Olsen as Chairman and 170 years of seafaring heritage behind us, we believe we’ve found the perfect formula for you to get the best out of your holiday with us.

Smaller but spacious
A smaller ship doesn’t mean less space; far from it. Each room is comfortably sized, with all that you’ll need to enjoy your holiday. In fact, our rooms are comparable to those on some of the mammoth cruise ships. While our vessels are on a more accessible scale, you can have just as much private space.  With fewer people on board it’s easy to find a quiet spot to relax in peace with a drink or a good book. There’s room to stretch out by the pool and you can get ashore more quickly too. And when you’re ashore, you’re seeing the best of each port of call with hundreds – not thousands – of others, giving you a much more authentic experience.

Service with a smile
Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday: in guest feedback our staff are always the most highly-rated aspect of the whole experience.
