By diverting away from well-travelled coastal routes, into spectacular, size-restricted waterways, smaller ship Braemar takes you on an inspirational journey to some of the fjordland’s most spellbinding scenes. Navigating the tightening twists, turns and pinching, soaring cliffs and mountains of UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord, and gliding through the orchard-filled landscapes of Hardangerfjord provides views you’ll remember forever, while transiting the picturesque Karmsund straight – out of reach to larger ships – will be a unique experience.

Along with unforgettable scenic cruising adventures, visits to charming fjord villages and attractive cities bring plenty of highlights within your reach. Idyllic Flåm awaits, where you can ride the iconic Flåmsbana Railway and see the cascading Kjosfossen Waterfall up-close, or take in astonishing views of Aurlandsfjord from the Stegastein Lookout; and Eidfjord, gateway to the famous Vøringsfossen waterfall and fascinating Hardangervidda Nature Centre. There’s rich Norwegian history and culture to delve into too, at charming Bergen, with its UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf and traditional fish market, and attraction-packed Stavanger.

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.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

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.
