Escape to the Caribbean and experience the region’s quintessential sunshine, scenery and culture, all before embarking on a memorable, laidback journey to Spain. After flying into Cuba to meet Braemar, you’ll have a full day in Havana to capture the very essence of the island. You could spend a day taking 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; and learn about traditional local dance. Whatever you choose to do, you’re sure to be left captivated by the Cuban capital. There are visits to the Bahamas and Bermuda too, with the latter boasting pastel buildings, coconut palms and pink-sand shores. Both islands are perfect for simply relaxing and enjoying the Caribbean warmth.[ReadMore]

In addition to your discoveries ashore, a sail across the Atlantic – one of the great ocean cruise experiences – will be something to remember. It’ll be much more than a simple ocean crossing; along the way you’ll get to look out for Atlantic wildlife, including sea birds, whales, dolphins and more, watch the stars under unpolluted skies, and of course have plenty of time to relax on Braemar’s open decks. There’s even a stop in the Azores – to take in São Miguel Island’s crater lakes and hot springs – en route. Finally, in Spain, see the Andalusian delights of Cádiz, with its ancient sites and traditional tapas, or Seville – on tour from Cádiz – where sultry flamenco and Gothic architecture are amongst many highlights.

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising.

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. But this is not for us. Find out more 

1. WE ARE PROUD TO SAIL OUR OWN COURSE

We are free to do things a different way because we are family-run. Of course some people enjoy the bigger, busier cruises, but it is not for everyone, and it is not for us. We prefer to do things, 'The Olsen Way'.

2. SMALLER IS BETTER

We have fewer guests, so the atmosphere on board our ships is always warm and civilised. Our smaller ships allow us to visit the more interesting places that the world has to offer.

3. HAND-CRAFTED, NOT MASS PRODUCED

We pride ourselves on putting our all into the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. Our itineraries are created from scratch every year, our service is genuinely personal and each and every area of our ships is designed by hand.

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.
