The Olsen Way Highlights

The benefits of a smaller ship come to the fore on this getaway to France and Belgium, as Braemar sails size-restricted rivers to ports that larger ships can’t reach. You can savour picturesque countryside views during scenic cruising of the Loire and Seine rivers, while calls into Nantes, Rouen and Honfleur present chances to uncover highlights such as the Loire Valley wine region, the iconic landmarks of Paris, and the Claude Monet House and Gardens. The centre of historic Antwerp, famed for its diamonds, art and architecture, will be just 500 metres’ walk from where Braemar docks. We will be the only cruise ship in port, too, giving you a less crowded experience.

Introducing Braemar

Braemar is the smallest ship in our fleet, which means she can get even closer to many of the destinations we visit. Her flatter hull means she can sail sizerestricted waterways, such as the ultra-narrow Corinth Canal, and dock closer to city centres.
