This specially crafted cruise is a chance to enjoy outstanding experiences in Greece and Spain’s beautiful Andalusia region, from absorbing centuries of history amongst world famous landmarks to being part of a spectacular annual festival, and sailing the impressive Corinth Canal twice on one unforgettable journey.[ReadMoreMob]

Excitement and sheer astonishment will grasp you as record-breaking Braemar navigates the Corinth Canal. Sailing serenely between the canal’s carefully carved, pinching cliffs, you’ll delight in dramatic views and a unique experience rarely enjoyed on an ocean cruise ship, and make memories that last a lifetime. During your time ashore at Greek islands, you’ll be immersed in rich history, culture and stunning beauty; take in the Cretan charms and striking Byzantine architecture of Agios Nikolaos; and trail the ancient sites of Rhodes, from Rhodes Town to Lindos’ legendary ruins. In sleepy Syros and gorgeous Kefallonia, Ermoupoli and Argostoli exude Mediterranean magic, with pastel-hued villas and palm-lined promenades, Ouzeries and glorious beaches. Meanwhile, there are incredible attractions to uncover on the mainland; Katakolon and Pireaus are gateways to the iconic ancient cities of Olympia and Athens.[ReadMoreDesk]

You’re in for an authentic, immersive taste of Andalusia. With Braemar docking closer to the heart of each destination, you’ll find it easy to embark on rewarding, in-depth explorations, an advantage that’ll be particularly rewarding in stunning Seville. Your visit coincides with the final day of Feria de Abril, and you’ll be perfectly placed to join local revellers, see the parades and experience the excitement to the full, before watching festival-closing fireworks from the comfort of your smaller ship. There’ll be time to seek-out Seville’s many historic sites too; and even learn sultry Flamenco moves from a Bailaora. 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.

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.
