Morocco’s unique cultures, traditions and influences are at the forefront of your discovery on this cruise, as Braemar takes you to a string of captivating cities to experience their way of life to the full.[ReadMoreMob] Any visit to Casablanca is memorable, so your overnight stay is sure to be a highlight. You’ve ample time to see sights such as the majestic Hassan II Mosque, and enjoy flavoursome Tagine cuisine here. Or perhaps you’ll opt to tour to Marrakech for bustling souks, religious monuments and the famous Medina, alive with energetic markets, street food vendors, artists and all manner of performers. Animated souks are yours to explore in Tangier too, where soaring minarets and domes, and a legendary Kasbah – once the sultan's walled palace and gardens – also await.

A visit to Agadir is a chance to explore Souk El Had and try local flavours of mint tea, fruits and spices; and even learn about how Argan Oil is made, meeting the ladies who crush the nuts from endemic argan trees. Agadir is also your gateway to the Atlas Mountains; on tour, you could trek the foothills and witness some of Morocco’s most magnificent scenery. Away from Moroccan shores, you’ll see how Moorish influences have helped shaped some Spanish cities too. Seville is a fine example of this, with its Moorish architectural highlights, such as the Giralda and Royal Alcazar Palace. A full day in this Andalusian delight allows time to see the sights at leisure, and enjoy its Spanish charms too, from flamenco dancing to delicious tapas.

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.
