The cruise at a glance
The Olsen Way Highlights
Enjoy the benefits of small ship cruising as Braemar takes you into the heart of Baltic cities at a time of year with fewer tourists. Your ship is also small enough to transit the iconic Kiel Canal. You will find royal palaces, canals and the Little Mermaid statue in the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Tallinn’s medieval Old Town is ripe for exploration. A tour of the area presents an opportunity to ring the cathedral bells with the city bell ringer. Other highlights include sailing past the Olsen family home in Hvitsten, tours to Berlin from Travemünde, and Viking history in Oslo.
Life On Board
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.
