Sailing a short, yet relaxing and rewarding journey along England’s south coast, taking in plenty of highlights along the way, you’re in for a perfect escape from it all. Visiting Cornish shores, you’ll delight in views of the Fal Estuary’s gorgeous landscapes and stop in Falmouth. Braemar docks close to the centre of this charming town, and to Pendennis Castle – built by Henry VIII in the 16th century – and the National Maritime Museum. Falmouth is also your gateway to the famous Eden Project, and the scenic Lizard Peninsula, while there are opportunities to savour a taste of famous culinary delights, from cream teas to Cornish pasties.[ReadMore]

On the Devonshire coast, Plymouth awaits you. Following in the footsteps of famous explorers such as Drake, Darwin and Captain Cook, your exploration here could see you stroll the historic Barbican district, encompassing the original harbour and the oldest gin distillery in England, while you can visit the National Marine Aquarium and admire sea views from the Smeaton’s Tower Lighthouse too. What’s more, scenic cruising among the Channel Islands will round off your bank holiday getaway in style. You will pass the observation towers of southern Guernsey; the island of Brecqhou – privately owned by the Barclay brothers’; and the Victorian fortifications of Alderney.

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.
