Making full use of her smaller size, and ability to sail narrow, shallow waterways, Braemar takes you on a journey along meandering rivers in France and Spain, passing through gorgeous countryside scenes on the way to fascinating, culture-rich riverside cities. The Guadalquivir River is your picture-perfect route into Seville, where iconic attractions such as Plaza de España, the Moorish Alcázar Palace and spectacular Gothic Cathedral, are within easy reach of Braemar’s central berth. An overnight stay in Seville also affords time to not only savour the raw emotion of a traditional flamenco performance, but be taught the dance by a local bailaora too. In France, the countryside scenes of the Loire River will delight en route to Nantes, gateway to famous Loire Valley vineyards. Stay in Nantes, and many highlights – from Château des ducs de Bretagne to Cathédrale Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul – await just a gentle walk from the ship’s gangway.[ReadMore]

Sailing the River Seine will be another standout experience; serene glides to and from Rouen present views of some of Normandy’s most picturesque landscapes and charming communes perched along the river banks. Whilst in Rouen, there’s plenty of time to immerse yourself in the city’s fascinating history; you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time amongst the charming streets and abundance of centuries-old sites, such as the spectacular Gothic-style Cathédrale Notre-Dame, Gros Horloge and Place du Vieux-Marche. Rouen is also close enough to Paris for tours to see the capital’s iconic landmarks. At the mouth of the Seine, the cobbled streets and historic Vieux Bassin of Honfleur are also yours to explore too.  

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.
