Sailing to, and docking in, the heart of the six diverse destinations on this itinerary allows for easy, in-depth discoveries of quintessentially Spanish and Portuguese culture and traditions.[ReadMoreMob] In Spain’s sunlit south, the scenic Guadalquivir River is your route into Seville, where Plaza de España, the Moorish Alcázar Palace and the Gothic Cathedral, traditional tapas bars and more are within easy reach of Braemar’s berth. An overnight stay here also affords time to feel the emotion of an evening flamenco performance, and even learn the dance from a bailaora.

A visit to Lisbon during the Feast of St Anthony Festival is a recipe for a memorable day in the Portuguese capital; revel in all the fun and festivity of street parties, and indulge with grilled sardines and Pasteis de Nata as the wine and beer flows. You’ve time to see the city’s landmarks, and learn of its maritime heritage, too. Elsewhere in Portugal, a stop Leixoes provides another opportunity to enjoy the local flavours of port wine and sardines, and tour to nearby Oporto, while Braemar is small enough to dock at Portimão, closer to the beaches and coastal panoramas of the Algarve, and historic Setubal.

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.
