Providing a taste of Fred. Olsen’s small ship cruising experience, and a chance to savour the cultures of two captivating cities, this five-night cruise makes for a perfect short break. Visiting Belgium, you’ll enjoy a scenic journey along the Western Scheldt River before Braemar docks in the heart of Antwerp, closer to the city’s attractions. Head ashore and you’ll soon discover highlights such as the iconic Cathedral of Our Lady, traditional Belgian chocolate shops; Grote Markt; and the legendary Diamond District, where you could not only see some of the world’s greatest gems, but help to polish a rough diamond too.

Then it’s on to the Netherlands, where Braemar will once again dock closer to the centre of one of Europe’s most attraction-packed cities, Amsterdam. An abundance of attractions, from Anne Frank House to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, await just a short distance from the gangway. Don’t miss the chance to explore iconic canals and marvel at the magnificent architecture of the UNESCO-listed Canal Ring. Perhaps see the sights by bicycle, or opt for a romantic canal boat tour in the evening.

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Service with a smile

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.
