With Christmas approaching, and the British winter taking hold, there’s no better time – and way – to escape it all and enjoy some well-earned rest and relaxation than on voyage to the Caribbean.[ReadMoreMob] Leaving the UK’s gloomy shores behind you’ll soon forget about the cold weather back home as Braemar heads for the sun-kissed islands across the Atlantic. Experiencing the magic of ocean cruising on a smaller cruise ship, and feeling the excitement build in anticipation for your Caribbean adventures, will be something to remember forever. En route, a visit to the Azores and São Miguel, with its volcanic landscapes, craters and colourful lakes, will whet your appetite for the island sights and highlights to come.

Upon arrival in the Caribbean, you’ll call first at St Kitts; perhaps ride the island’s scenic railway – taking in vistas of the ocean surf, mighty cliffs and rolling, lush-green landscapes – for a memorable start to your time in the region. Then it’s on to Guadeloupe, where Braemar will be the only ship in port during your time in Basse-Terre. This allows for a less-crowded discovery of the island’s capital, its thick rainforest and volcanic peaks. Exotic, rainforest-smothered volcanic landscapes await exploration on Dominica too, as well as St Lucia, home to some of the Caribbean’s most majestic wonders – including the peaks of Twin Pitons – and St Vincent. At each island, you’ll discover mile-upon-mile of idyllic beaches ripe for relaxation in the sunshine too; ample places to sample locally-produced food and drink, such as authentic Creole cuisine and Caribbean rum; and historical highlights aplenty.

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.

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.
