A discovery of iconic islands and their cultural, historical and scenic highlights; this cruise showcases the Caribbean at its very best. Unforgettable experiences await throughout this journey; you’ll get to embrace the vibrancy of Trinidad, famed for its music, food, dance and carnival atmosphere, and have a chance to delve into Jamaica’s history of Reggae and pirates. You could enjoy an exploration of Port Royal and learn of the village’s swashbuckling past, or even tour to Kingston – the former home of Bob Marley – to sample the laid-back vibes, music and spicy jerk chicken.[ReadMore]

Two days in Havana, ample time to capture the very essence of Cuba, is sure to be a highlight. Take in Havana’s monuments and landmarks via a classic American car; sip daiquiri and mojito in the city where these delicious tipples were first invented; enjoy an evening at the Tropicana; and much more in the Cuban capital. A visit to Antigua provides an opportunity to relax on your pick of the island’s 365 quintessentially-Caribbean beaches, and see its historic sites, while at St Lucia, views of natural wonders such as the Twin Pitons and bubbling Soufrière Volcano await. Take in the unspoilt scenery and the spiced scents of Grenada too; explore Martinique’s verdant, forested interiors and unmistakably French-influenced cities; and enjoy the local customs of Barbados, from traditional rum to the history of cricket.

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.
