On a cruise designed by our team our journey planners to bring you closer to the greatest sites and cities of Andalusia, experience the culture, history and traditions of one of Spain’s most breathtaking regions. A relaxing journey along the gorgeous, palm-lined Guadalquivir River is sure to be a highlight of this special sailing. The size-restricted Guadalquivir isn’t accessible to larger vessels, so guests on megaships can’t experience the natural beauty of this enchanting waterway. However, on board smaller-sized Braemar, you’ll sail the river to and from the heart of Seville, taking in spectacular scenery en route. When in Seville, Andalusia’s capital, you’ll have an overnight stay to really get under the city’s skin. Perhaps wander into the centre to search the pretty squares and streets for historical and architectural attractions such as Alcázar Palace, the UNESCO-listed gothic cathedral and 16th century Casa de Pilatos; and sample delicious local cuisine at one of the many tapas bars. You could also catch a sultry performance of Flamenco dancing, and even learn the art of this traditional dance with a local Bailaora.[ReadMore]

The fantastic five days of exploration in Spain’s southernmost region begin in Cádiz, which is said to be where tapas originated and boasts a wealth of must-see sites within its old town, including the 18th century cathedral and Plaza de España. There’s also a visit to Malaga, overflowing with aesthetic and cultural treasures; here you could marvel at the Moorish Alcazaba Fortress and explore the ‘mile of art’, where the Picasso Museum is among many highlights. Alternatively, tour to a family-run olive oil business to see how it’s produced. Delve into the rich history of Almeria too, at its the ancient Moorish fortress of Alcazaba and 16th century, renaissance-style fortified Cathedral. Elsewhere in Spain, in addition to your Andalusian adventure, enjoy time in beautiful Asturias region and the city of Avilés, where Braemar is small enough to dock within walking distance of the Old Town, ideally placed for sampling authentic Asturian cider.

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.
