Revel in the charms of Denmark, as you experience its culture, rich heritage and traditional delights, as well as the warmth of its towns, cities and their people. Enjoy a specially timed visit to Fredericia, during its annual 6th July celebration of victory against Schleswig-Holstein soldiers; after receiving a warm welcome from locals at the quayside, you’ll get to join in with the festivities which include live music, colourful parades and a fantastic fireworks display. You’re sure to see landmarks such as the Foot Soldier Statue as you explore too.[ReadMore]

You’re also in for an uplifting day in Aalborg; after treating yourself to a complimentary hot dog – a local tradition – at the port, get a feel for hygge in a city once voted ‘Europe’s happiest’ and uncover highlights including Aalborghus Castle and a selection of galleries, museums and friendly pubs. Braemar will take you into the heart of Copenhagen; docking close to the capital’s centre makes for easy discoveries of attractions such as the Little Mermaid, Nyhavn waterfront district, Tivoli Gardens and the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces. You’ll also get to spend time at Skagen, a town boasting beautiful scenery, typically Danish charm and sweeping white sands that have inspired many artists, including Danish painter, Krøyer.

 

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.
