Experience an immersive, in-depth Baltic discovery, with smaller-sized Braemar taking you to the heart of iconic cities and lesser-known gems packed with extraordinary sights and attractions. Docking in the centre of Copenhagen – Denmark’s cosmopolitan capital – brings highlights such as the Little Mermaid and the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces closer; and you’ll benefit from a central berthing location in Swinoujscie, allowing you to explore this rarely-visited Polish port city, famed for its maritime heritage, Prussian fortifications and 19th century lighthouse, with ease.

Many of St Petersburg’s golden domes and spires are in view of Braemar’s berth on the Neva River, enticing you ashore to uncover the wonders within Russia’s ‘Jewel in the Baltic Crown. Spectacular sites, such as Peterhof Palace, the Church of Our Saviour on the Spilled Blood, the Hermitage and much more awaits; and you could experience the magic of a night at the iconic ballet, with a chance to meet the soloist after the show, too. A maiden call at the pretty Swedish port of Trelleborg is made possible by your small ship’s size advantage too, as is scenic cruising through gorgeous German countryside flanking the Kiel Canal. And, if all that wasn’t enough, there’s a visit to Tallinn, to marvel at the medieval castles, cathedrals and churches of the Estonian capital’s fairytale-esque Old Town.

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.
